PRLCD / PRP Issues (?) DM42v3.11

PRLCD seems to have two issues: 1. Does not print the entire LCD. I'm using it from the print menu while in Calc mode. 2. It does not print the bottow line of the LCD until the next print command. It also does not 'do a CR' - the next print command starts at the end of the end of the PRLCD output. P...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Good News Everyone!!!

I de-installed the driver and re-installed.

Although it reported 'Other error' at the end of the install, the DM now shows in File Manager!!!

Hallelujah!

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Thank you again to all of you for your attention... . .... ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ So, just to review: I've ruled out the cable and the physical connection to the PC. I can do things on another PC, but I am most curious to get it working on this PC (which I had been using si...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

This machine has had the driver installed since the ver 2.xx days (beta testing). Upgrades always worked fine until this 3.10 business. I've since re-installed the driver with the same results. I only explained the bootloader vs USB activated modes to describe some of the PC weirdness. The ROOT prob...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

No, no exclamation marks appear in Control Panel. I just re-installed the driver.. If I put the DM42 in bootloader mode, it shows up in the control panel as STM32 Bootloader. If I put the DM42 in Activate USB mode, it shows up in the control panel as STM Mass Storage. BUT in either case it never sho...

Re: Mandelbrot graphic test

I too do not get the nicer escape value image.

What are the parameters people are using to get the pretty / properly scaled M-set image?

Thank you

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Hello GRS: Thank you for the reply. Since I reflashed the QSPI, screen shows: QSPI SIZE 1370864 CRC: 000cfed6 QSPI READY PGM IFC: 3.9 DMCP IFC:3.9 DMCP IFC COMPATIBLE All seems fine, I've loaded and run programs. I still have to try on the machine that the DM42 did not show up in explorer. Regards, ...

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

This is the same PC, etc I've been using since the prototype era.

I can try another PC setup, although given that when the DM42 3.10 is installed and appears to run yet gives garbled results in the stack tells me that there is something corrupt at a very low level.

Re: Updating from 3.3 to 3.10

Here again is the latest status: from the DMCP menu, I've formatted and checked the FAT disk. I then got to 'activate USB disk' from the DMCP menu. The PC chirps indicating that the driver is working (and Control Panel shows it installed and working properly). BUT the DM42 does NOT show in file expl...
