Miniscope Device Manager
« on: May 30, 2017, 01:44:27 PM »
Good morning,

I have a problem installing the miniscope.

I built the miniscope and I started following the prcedure on http://miniscope.org/index.php?title=Software_and_Firmware_Setup

1) I set the jumper modality BOOT FROM USB,
2) I installed the driver for the miniscope,
3) I uploaded the firmware msDAQ_Firmware.img through the Cypress application

The problem appeared as soon as I power cycled the miniscope.

Windows does not show anymore any Miniscope in the Device Manager (now it doesn't even show the Westbridge device it used to show before installing the driver).
Miniscope should be appear ad Imaging Device, instead I can see only the driver of miniscope.

Is there a step I miss? Is it possible to solve this problem. I need to go on with the work.

Thank you,
Matteo

Hi Matteo,
Sorry for the slow response over email. I usually am more responsive to discussion board posts anyways.

From the looks of it, this sounds like a driver incompatibility issue. Have you tried hooking up your programmed DAQ PCB to other computers?

Since the DAQ PCB doesn't show up as a Westbridge device or Bootloader in Cypress Control Center once you have successfully programmed the EEPROM, the issue is likely with how the DAQ PCB enumerates as a generic webcam. The source of this issue is hopefully some weird compatibility issue between my implementation of the USB Video Class protocol and your specific computer.

Good morning to everybody,
I have a still problem installing the miniscope.
Here I have attached the a word file with all the screenshots of what I did during the installation.
If someone can find any mistake or can help it would be great!
Thank you so much,
Matteo

Hi Matteo,
It looks like your DAQ PCB is still booting up as a Cypress Bootloader even after you have programmed the EEPROM with the firmware. If the jumpers and switches are set correctly this shouldn't happen (The DAQ PCB should show up under Imaging Devices and not under USB controllers in Device Manager). Since the DAQ PCB is still booting up as a bootloader it means it isn't grabbing the firmware off the EEPROM on power up. I have never seen this before and can't think of what the cause would be apart from a physical issue with the PCB.

I can't remember if you have other DAQ PCBs to use to see if this problem shows up on them too.

Hi Daniel,
thank you that you replied me. Tomorrow I will try it with Mac. Here is the pics of our DAQ-PCB. We have only this so far.
Sincerely,
Matteo

Hi Matteo,
The Miniscope system will not run on MAC unless you directly boot into Windows 7 or 10 through BootCamp. Just FYI.

Hi Daniel,
I fix the problem. For some reason the EEPROM doesn't work properly, so I have desoldered it and I have put a new one!
Now I think I have a common problem...
I attached a screenshot!
Thank you
Sincerely,
Matteo

Hi Matteo,
It is great to hear that you are making progress!

Can you give me a little bit more detail concerning the problem you are having now? From what it looks like you are able to connect to the Miniscope and get a live video stream but it crashes and the screen turns red shortly after?

Hi Daniel,
thank you for your answer..I have attached the screenshot as you can see.
The Software writes that The Miniscope must be connected.
What could be?
The window of the video is grey.
Thank you,
Matteo

Hi Daniel:
New problem, I have connected one more time the DAQ-PCB and the MINISCOPE in Imaging Device doesn't show up!
Looks like I have the same problem.
What could be?
Thank you,
Matteo

The LED ( this from the beginning, from the moment I have assembled the DAQ-PCB) turn on are only 2.the LED U12 is turn off.
What does it mean?
Sincerely,
Matteo

In the website you have written:
"Connect a USB3.0 cable between the DAQ PCB and computer being careful not to apply too much force or torque on the USB connector. Make sure to use a short (under 3ft to 5ft) USB3.0 cable.
Make sure the bottom 2 LEDs turn on."

But in the forum everyone report that 3 LED should be turn on!
Why? Did I miss anything?
Thank you,
Matteo

Hi Daniel,
Here is the link of the coax cable:

https://www.digikey.com/products/en?keywords=897611670

It looks like the same cable that you have used in the videos of Youtube in the website.
Is it correct?
So far there is no impedance reported. it is 50?
Thank you,
Matteo
