I am trying to setup a system to program some AMC and am having trouble getting my card to work.
My card version is a single can channel and din-6 plugs for the can interface, it is marked iPC-I 320/PCI II
My first try was a W98 computer and I used VCI2 drivers, everything appeared to install fine but when I hit “Test” I get a “Board reset error”, see attachment.
I insured the IRQ was clear and the IXXAT program showed the same memory and irq information as device manager which said the device was working properly. I tried several of the slots and different irq’s, same problem every time.
My board also has a beeper on it which would beep on boot and when I tried to access the board via the test button so I know it was receiving data from the driver. I later learned that there was a program downloaded in the board the utilized the beeper and flipped the dip switches to default which kept the board from making any noise but still no joy.
I finally gave up on the W98 setup and built a XP system using VCI3 drivers, after everything was said and done, the V3 drivers give me the dreaded tick mark in device manager (Code 10). The V2 drivers install correctly (no tick mark) but the mon program does not show a board is installed. I again tried several slots and reinstalled the driver (forcefully) to both v2 and v3. I never got the V3 driver happy with my setup and when the v2 said ok I could not comm with the board using “Test”
Using V2 driver on Xp and turning on the program again with the dipswitch yields the beeping exactly as when I was using the w98 system, at boot and when I hit “Test” I am totally full circle and scratching my head.
Any help would be appreciated,
