Re: Program locking up when I abort any image

I am using a Audine based CCD camera and the QuickAudine

interface. The camera connects and works fine, but if I stop any

kind of image capturing Maxim locks up. This can happen even if I

resize the first image while the second is being taken. I have to

shut down the camera and computer to release whatever is causing

this. I had to use a free program called Pisco during Okie-Tex

which had no issues what so ever. I could take an image and stop it

anytime all night long.



Any ideas what I can do to use Maxim DL without it hanging up on me.

I guess I am in the minority here with Audines since I am getting no

feed back. I was hoping to use Maxim DL to image with the Audine

as the main camera and auto guide with the ST-7 XME which works and

long as I never do anything on the computer like a screen stretch.



Version 3 was more stable in the test phase of the camera in that

focusing was possible and not locking everything up. I have 3.06

still but is there anywhere on the Maxim site to still get the 3.22

update since 4 will not work. The conclusion I can draw is maybe

version 3 will work out for the better in my case. This is fine with

me since aquiring the image does not matter what is used.

Dean, you might try the Genesis list at

www.genesis16.net/archive/archives.htm



They have worked through some of the problems associated with the

QuickAudine interface and MaxIm.

Hi Dean,



If I recall what Landrun Haddix had to say about the Audine USB driver code,

it assumes that the camera is the first and only USB device present. That

may be the source of your lockups with the XME present. Landrum has

rewritten the driver to enumerate the devices on the buss, (whatever the

hell that means). grin> It may be worth trying out his driver with MaxIm.

I may be wrong, but I believe that it will work with the French designed USB

adapter or the modified version that some of us have been using.

Marty,



I am using the Haddix version and tried Maxim only with the single

camera. That did not help. I did hear from Scott who sent Doug the

QuickAudine DLL to write a driver for Maxim. He uses version 3 and

seems to not have any problems. I am using 4 but willing to go back

to 3 it that works. I can tell you right now that if I pick the

Audine as the camera and USB along with the other settings, it won't

even connect. Using the QuickAudine choice at least connects and

will take an image.



I really wanted to use 2 cameras and one application. But I am now

seeing that even if I can get this to work, I will have to use CCD

Soft or something else to auto guide.

Dean,



I'm using two cameras: Genesis as main and Sbig 237 as guider with no

problems. If you are using a USB hub with your QuickAudine adapter

that might the problem. What I did was to power the usb camera cable

separately and all the problems went away. Also you might try to use

one of the computer usb ports. Landrum found out that the voltage

drops when is downloading the image and locks up the adapter and that

locks Maxim. I have a modified French QuickAuidine adapter with PIC

ver. 1.7.



I hope it helps

I am not using a hub and even though my other camera for the guiding

is USB, I get the same trouble without it. I don't think I am having

an issue with voltage drops although that is something that might

have to be checked. I can take a series and any length with Maxim

DL using the sequence tab. My trouble is that if I abort an image,

it will stop but I cannot take another one and Maxim DL stops

responsing. I have not tried version 3 yet, but I have heard it has

no issues.



By chance have you tried to abort an image and take another one and

are you using version 4?

Hi



I am confused why I am locking up while you have no issues. Can you

provide me with the following



Windows OS version and Maxim DL Version



Are you using the QuickAudine plugin so that in the camera choice

you are using QuickAudine and not Audine.



What CCD are you using. I have the KAF 1603ME



I might try reinstalling Maxim DL on an different PC to see if that

is the issue.

By locking up, do you mean that MaxIm DL becomes completely

unresponsive? If so, then a simple test is in order -- pull the USB

plug while it is locked up. MaxIm should then come back to life with an

error message.



If that is happening, then the USB communications are locking up. This

can happen if the peripheral does not respond correctly to the command

from the PC. The Microsoft implementation of the USB protocol on the PC

is too stupid to realize that this can happen and there is no timeout

option.



USB communications can lock up for the following reasons:



- incompatibility between the device firmware and the software driver



- a bug in either the device firmware or the software driver



- a hardware problem on the device side that causes it to respond

incorrectly. One cause I've seen is a poor power supply.



Since the interface works for one person and not the other, I would

suspect that either (a) you're using different firmware versions and one

is incompatible, or (b) there's some sort of hardware issue happening.

The exact problem is that when taking an image and I stop the

imaging during a series or focus, then image will stop. When I

start another image them Maxim is unresponsive. Pulling out the USB

does nothing to help and even restarting Maxim Dl does not help.

The computer has to be shut off and everything is restarted. I am

using the QuickAudine Plug in so that is the camera choice I am

using, not the Audine. The Audine with the USB will not connect.



The QuickAudine has Haddix firmware and maybe that is the issue.

However, no that I am thinking about it, we ran into this problem

before the person that built the camera updated the firmware in the

QuickAudine, so I don't think it is a firmware issue there.



I guess I need to do more testing to see what is causing the issue

Thanks

#14429 Oct 23, 2004

I'm using windows XP pro SP-2, The french QuickAudine modified to the

Landrum's adaptor (Change of PIC and crystal) and ver 1.7. MaxImDl 4.05

and Landrum's Genesis driver. Also FTDI latest dirver. And of course,

I power my USB cable thrugh a 5 V. regulator independent from the

computer because the adaptor does not like voltage variations. I,m

using also, KAF-1602-E
