The problem is that after several hours filming on timelapse the microscope light switches off and no further photos are taken. On exiting the programme the microscope will not restart unless the computer is rebooted. Windows 2000 states that the device is working correctly and all other devices will operate using the usb connection. The time taken for the microscope to stop filming has varied from 2 hours to 24 hours. The problem does not appear to be dependent on temperature since I have left running in a cold room. Will a usb connection 'timeout'?
Depending on the model of your USB, (1.1 or 2.0) it may or may not time out. With a 2.0 speed USB it will not typically tome out until about 30 hours of very high activity use. A 1.1, on the other hand can get to do that a lot. If your USB is a 2.0 get a computer expert to check that it is not malfunctioning. If it is a 1.1, I would suggest getting a USB upgrade.

Unfortunately, no. Time-lapse video works by taking fewer frames and then displaying them at normal speed so as to give the impression of time going by faster than in reality. Thus, the camera simply hasn't recorded all the information it would have in normal mode, and there's no way to recreate that information. Think of reading just the first line of every page of a book: you'd get through it quickly, but you'd also miss some things.
Now, if you'd shot in slow-motion, then you could throw out some frames until you got to normal speed.
if you check the operation for spliting to a photo tube. PG 49
you can see the procedure for using a camera
(there is a control pin on the side of the scope (shown on pg 49) which you have to operate to switch to the camera output... you should then be able to take your photos :)
