There are a couple of different pieces of software on the site, which one did you download and is it a serial or parallel connection, with or without power?

Ok I downloaded funprom249.zip from card-mania.co.uk.
The programmer has no power connection it just plugs into pc with bi-directional parallel cable

Just had a look at the software, seems quite straightforward, if it isn't seeing the processor it can be one of several things.

If you are using Windows XP or 200 it may not work as the programme only appears to work under 95/98/NT, putting the card in upside down may also elicit the same response

Im using 98, ive tried the card both ways but same response.
On the forum at funnet someone said to install NT port drivers, but it wont let me.
Ive also gone into bios to change peripherals epp, bi-lat and epg but still the same prob!!

Is the parallel lead you are using bi-directional?

Thanks for your help so far, unfortunatley the site u mentioned didn't open any more doors for me.
Still getting 'no response from processor'. I must be going wrong somewhere but i just cant figure it out.
If I had some hair i would pull it out?

To be honest I don't know much about that particular programmer. According to the link I gave you version 2.49 of funprom is a beta version as is 2.48. He says 2.47 is an official version so you could download that from his site and try it.

BTW the link that Baka gave you in a previous thread doesn't appear to work. Did you find that?

Hi Jimbo, tried version 247 but the same prob, maybe the cable isn't right but i'm sure data transfer cable is ok.
Bakas link worked for me, its a german site but directs u too fun net for downloads.

I have tried it on a friends laptop with win 2000 and got the same error so it must be a faaulty programmer.
What do u think?
I can send it back and they will test it for me, my last hope i think!

Difficult for me to say Mr Leeroy. I don't know what costs are involved, as in what you paid and whether you would have to pay postage to return it for testing. If they would credit your money back, if it is faulty, could you run to an Elvis programmer instead. I'm not familiar with the fun programmer and can't quite see a reason for running it through a parallel port. Also, why no installation or operating instructions with it.

With an Elvis you can program most types of cards, not just fun and you might want to use the odd gold or silver card. It's all down to choice and affordability, I do appreciate that.
