PICOSCOPE 3205 not recognised by new PC

Post by Phil » Tue Oct 14, 2008 12:25 pm

All,
I have recently lost my old IBM Laptop due to a failure. I tried re-installing the PICOSCOPE on my new DELL Laptop.

1) The original disc software loaded no problems.
2) When USB plugged-in, the computer recognised and loaded it into the USB device as PICOSCOPE 3000.
3) When running PICOSCOP software it say it cannot locate the device.
4) it them opens up a scope sreens with no trace, with the trigger declaring "waiting for ADC".

Since then I have tried upgrading to version 6.XX and 5.20.1 with different problem but always the same end result.

I also tried it on my Athlon based desktop. Same result!

Both PC run WINDOWS XP SP3

Can anyone help me?
Regards
Phil

Hi Phil,
It could well be that the PicoScope has gone faulty too. Please send an email to the Help desk where it is easier to deal with the returns number process:- support@picotech.com
Mark for the attention of PeterF and I will take it from there.
Regards,
PeterF.
