Continuing the sad saga...
The Device Manager shows Pico parallel port. I was able to get Picoscope to at least recognize the ADC-11 itself by, yet again, removing and reinstalling Picoscope 5. This at least eliminated the "The file ADC1132 failed to load correctly" error on starting Picoscope 5, and the ensuing "Waiting for ADC" status message. However I'm not so confident it won't come back.
However, the big problem still remains, the scope will not capture voltages. I applied 1.8 volts DC to the scope terminals, had PS5 "running", and absolutely no voltage trace is displayed on the screen, running or stopped. It seems that the USB/parallel adapter is not working with this ADC-11, and has never worked. So no wonder it doesn't trigger.
Do I need to send the adapter back, or, again,
I'm wondering if this is the same problem on which Michael (Guru, Location: St Neots, Cambridgeshire) advised another poster to send back his old ADC212/100 to have it modified by Picotech so it would work with the new USB adapter. (Posted: Wed Sep 28, 2005 3:19 pm Post subject: Error - ADC 212)?
