|If you are having trouble getting your Hondata to
communicate with your laptop there is an order in which you need to
1) Do not try to trouble shoot the Romulator and the
Datalogging at the same time. Burn a chip that is known to work and
figure out the datalogging first, then connect the Romulator. This will
also help you keep the com ports clear so you aren't trying to use the
wrong port for the devices.
2) Is the light on the interface box flashing or solid? If it is
flashing then you either have a blank EEPROM, or a corrupt ROM image.
Try burning a new Rom image.
3) Does your system have datalogging enabled? Did you purchase the
datalogging option? In HondaLogger hit CTRL-M (CTRL-U for
Romeditor 4) and make sure datalogging
is enabled on your interface box.
4) (This does not apply to ROmeditor 4) Make sure that the Romulator is not set up in RomEditor to use
the same com port as datalogging. If Romeditor is installed on the
computer, also make sure that both RomEditor and HondaLogger have the
same com port settings for datalogging.
5) Make sure you have the software set to the actual com port
setting that your computer is using. You can check to see what com
ports your computer is using in the device manager under ports.
6) If you are using a USB adapter, we recommend the Keyspan USB to
serial adapter as it is the most reliable and has software with it that
allows you to make sure it is communicating properly.
7) If you have a Dell laptop and are using the serial port built
into the laptop for datalogging this may not work as Dell uses a
proprietary serial port and they sometimes do not work. You will have
to use a USB to serial adapter.
