USB ADC11/12 cant read data into excel

Postby tobiashofer » Fri Oct 10, 2008 9:28 pm

Hello

I'm using the USB ADC11/12 data logger. To test the system i connected it to my PC (win xp).

To test the communication i use the usbadc11.xls excel programm from the SDK.
If i connect the datalogger i get the driver and device information. but the function "Ready = UsbAdc11Ready(handle)" the ready flag is always falls.

Does anybody have an idea how the get this system working?

What i should mention is:
i can set the digital output, i get the calculated sample time from the
driver function.

maybe this additonal information helps to get closer to the failure

Hi tobiashofer,

Have you got the same software version installed on both your PC and laptop?

Hi Ziko

Yes, operating system is win. xp. The software is the simple excel vba example. driver .sys .inf and .dll are the same.

HI tobiashofer,

Have you tried using PicoLog Recorder or PicoScppe to see if it works on the other computer?

Kind regards

Hi Ziko

Yes i tried to collect a block of data with picolog. It dosn't work. So it seems that there is a problem with the driver and some pc's.
