Last night I spent about 4 hours trying to figure out why my application was crashing with my 0/0/4 kit. I finally discovered that if more than 2 channels on the kit were turned on at the same time the computer would loose connection with the kit and then crash my program.
I opened up the Phidget Control Panel to verify my theory and sure enough I was right. If you tick 3 of the 4 boxes the window blanks out and then shortly after that the computer reconnects. Sometimes you get the Windows "your usb device is has been unplugged/plugged in" noise, you know the "buh-dink"
Lucky for me I had other computers to test with. I tested on 4 other computers and they all worked fine.
I made sure I had the most recent version of the libraries installed, I even downgraded to the version my other computers are running.
So I came to the conclusion there must be some incompatibility with the motherboard of this computer and/or it's usb drivers and the libraries. The drivers on the computer are all up to date and we have had no problems with any of the usb ports on the computer with any other usb device.
The computer that does not work has a GIGABYTE GA-EP45-DS3L motherboard and a Core 2 Duo E8400.
The other 4 computers are:
Acer Laptop (about 10 years old)
2 x Gigabyte Intel 865 - P4
Gigabyte x955 Royal - P4 640
4 of the 5 computers are running XP Pro and one is running XP Media Center 2005. As of writing this I realize that only the non-working computer has Service Pack 3 installed... maybe that is to blame...
Anyone have any ideas or insights? Anyone have a 0/0/4 working with XP Pro SP3?
