PIC programmer comms problems

Started by bruce varley April 3, 2004
This may be OT, apologies if so. I've tried to locate a group that caters
particularly for PIC programming, my ISP doesn't seem to have one on the
server. Maybe if there is a more appropriate resource someone could point me
there. Anyway, here goes.

I've just moved from many years of pleasure with HC11 onto PIC. The
programmer is a WARP13a, a neat little unit that many readers probably know
well, working with the native exe program suplied. With both my PCs it
suffers from a known error "C1 comms error". The supplier website says that
this will occur if software is too old, however my board and software are
all 'latest release', less than 8 weeks from receipt.

My guess is that the problem is due to delays in Windows responding to comms
commands, I've seen it before with my own comms software. Does anyone have
information on possible fixes for this specific device / problem? TIA

So put a delay tween each send command... Remove "HeadFromButt", before replying by email.
