Question about Computers & Internet
Thanks for your help Benimur. I took your advice and dowloaded and updated everything! :) There weren't any real errors to speak of but it's still not working. I took the unit to a mates today to satisfy my curiosity, tried to run it on his PC (serial to serial) and it still didn't recognise it!!
Now I'm in trouble I guess. Seems like it's a hardware issue. Now I need to find someone who'll look at the sensor for me!
Appreciate the update. Since as you posted you tried it to serial to serial then I would have to agree with you that the problem is with the hardware.
Perhaps this may be of help to you and whoever will look over the sensor. To my knowledge USB connection would at most require 4 wires (+5, GND, Data+ & Data-) while most serials would have 9 pins/connection/wires. This link can provide their pinouts.
Offhand, most likely suspect would be the cable or the connector specially the junction of the two.
Incidentally, this link may provide some technical background on the operations of the sensor pad though it would need a technical person to correlate information into actuality. I believe one has to be a member to be able to download the complete file (hopefully together with the illustrations).
Good luck with your project and sorry was not that much assistance.
