PicoLog 1012 USB device not recognised

Post by ct » Mon Nov 09, 2009 1:48 pm


I am wondering if anyone could help me. I have a picolog 1012 and have been trying to get it installed and recognised by windows xp, heres what I did;

Install software and driver from disk - RA5
Plug in picolog via USB
windows then scans usb devices and report 'new device' ... 'installing device' ... 'USB device not recognised'

after unpluging the device and reattaching it pops up saying 'USB device has malfunctioned'

under device manager it shows up as 'unknown device' and says it is used standard windows drivers, although is more likely to not be using any.

After this I tired uninstalling the software and trying again with no luck and then also downloading the lastest version of the software from the website and trying that, also with no luck. :(

This has also been tried on 3 other machines, 1 the exact same spec as the first, a laptop running vista, and a small notebook running xp (the end target machine for this to run on) all with the same error.

The red light on the unit comes on. And have tried a new USB cable with the same problem.

Can anyone make any suggestions? Is the unit faulty and needs replacing?
