While downloading only the first few lines of the program were readable, now when I try to download it is unreadable. The begining is:

Š<‹%á(´ Rï!
x>ü01! !!!! !!%¨è09à(µ¡Pì
z
00 !! !!! %©è09à(µ¡Pî
z
00!!! !!! !%©è08à >´¡
y=ü00 !!! !!!! $©è09á(¶ Rî

z
01 !!! !!! $©è0á(¶ Rî!
z>ý01 !!! !!!%¨è08à)µ Sï!
y<üù0!!!! !!! %©è09à(µ¡Pì

It should be this:

'Wire feeder program

print "Set switches for wire length"
print "Set number of wire cuts"
print "Turn RUN switch ON"

PINMODE 6, OUT rem PIN 6 DRIVES FEED RELAY
PINMODE 7, OUT rem PIN 7 DRIVES CUT RELAY
OUTD 7, 0 rem turns cut relay OFF
OUTD 6, O rem turns feed relay OFF

PINMODE 8, IN rem LSB, wire length (intiger) sw8-sw15
PINMODE 9, IN
PINMODE 10, IN
PINMODE 11, IN


Can you help?

Are you following the prescribed download steps strictly Les?

I have downloaded programs hundreds of times. The only time I experienced data integrity problems was when
I deviated from the prescribed steps.

The only other possible issue that I can think of is that the file you are downloading may not be saved as pure ASCII.

Best regards
Andries.

PS. I copied your program and downloaded it without a problem.

I have followed the prescribed download steps strictly. I am using "Tera Term" and "Programmer's Notepad" in Plain Text mode. I have not found a way to check "Programmer's Notepad" for "ASCII" setting.

Thanks Andries,

Les

Hi

This is weird. I assume you have disconnected the power and re-connected it and the problem is still there.

If you list the code in the other bank, do you see anything or even just the lines
Program Listing:

End of Listing

If you press reset on the module do you get the usual prompts? R-Run S-Step ....

What happens if you type E to get in the editor? Can you edit the program? Does it save?

Have you tried the other bank?

Thank you for the assurance about following the download steps, because the only time that I experienced data integrity problems in the program area was when I failed to complete the download process with Ctrl-D.

Text entered in and saved from Programmer's Notepad is in ASCII and should be OK.

Just a few more questions to try and get to the bottom of your problem:

1. Are you experiencing this problem with all the programs you download, or only with this one? In other words, is it a generic problem or only specific to this file?

2. Is the program contained in your first message a complete program, or is it part of a larger program?

3. Have you tried downloading some of the example programs available under the download section of the EZSbc1 product information? Are you also experiencing the same problem with these?

I have been using 4 ESBC1's since December 2012 and regularly program end re-program them.

Hope we can find a solution.

Best regards

Andries
