MSPNP GEN1 Connection Problem
Here is a copy of the e-mail i sent to DIY. It will explain my issue.
"I recently built my 96 1.8 Miata and Turbo'd it. I got ahold of a Gen 1 MSPNP for the tuning and have dealt with the same setup before on another miata. I had no issues like this before. Here's what im getting.
MSPNP has power and displays the power LED on the board with the key on.
Serial to S-video cable continuity checked fine.
Serial to USB adapter has the latest drivers installed and I assosciated it with COM2.
Loopback checked the adapter with HyperTerminal and it checks fine.
When plugged in with Key on and running portcheck.exe it comes back with no connection made under either Baud Rate. (granted it should only come up under 9600 on the GEN1)
MegaTune 2.25 will not read it either. (obviously)
I am running Windows 7 64bit.
Please let me know if you have any ideas i have spent a week or so online trying to find any information on forums, MS websites, Manuals, everything. I just am at the giving up point and really cant afford to get another computer.
Thanks in advance for any information you can give."
Please let me know if you have ANY ideas. I have sifted through every thread on every forum i could get my hands on.
