    Has anyone succeeded in downloading their AV8 Presets to a PC? I've been trying to do this using the program supplied on CD with my AV8 but so far have been unsuccessful. I've tried using the Windows98 Hyperterminal and that worked fine with commands issued from the PC responded to by my AV8 as expected.

    My problem starts when I try to use the supplied program to download the presets. As soon as I click the button I get the message "Started read FROM AV8" and then machines locks up - every time.

    I've considered using my work's XP Pro laptop but that doesn't have a serial port. I know there are USB to serial port converters but I'm unsure about spending money if this will not work either.

    Does anyone know if these converters can manage the 38,400 baud the AV8 requires?

    Thanks everyone.

    Cheers,

    Bob.
