Cannot run TI CC 4.10 with SPI530 Emulator in Windows XP

Started by rche...@altrionet.com July 22, 2009
Hi All,
We are experiencing one major problem when using C3x/C4x Code Composer 4.10 and the Spectrum Digital SPI530 MPSD Emulator on PCs running Windows XP. We have always run under Windows 2000 and never experienced the following error.

While we can successfully connect to a target C30 DSP, reset the DSP, view DSP memory and internal registers, modify memory locations and load symbols, we consistently get the same error when attempting to Load a Program ( .out file) into the C30.

It appears that right before the program finishes loading, the error “Trouble Writing Target DSP memory Trouble with J-Tag controller. Please ensure the I/O port is set properly” occurs and the program fails to load.

We have contacted Spectrum Digital and they say all SPI530 Emulator drivers are compatible with Windows XP. When we contacted Texas Instruments, they stated that they no longer support C30 DSPs or the C3x/C4x Code Composer.

Wrote a small (a few lines) code program, able to down load successfully, but not the big program.

Does any of you have idea/suggestion on this problem, please help?

Thank you,
BobC.

Bob C,

Did you ever resolve this problem? Having the same problem with a C31. I suspect it is a little noise geting into the emulator connection.

Let me know what solved your problem.

Thanks,
