sending trapcode error - blue titanium

I read all information here and in other forums concerning the problems erasing the blue titanium card (trapcode error). I tried to follow the suggestions but couldn’t get past “sending trapkey” while erasing the card with Titanium Card Progger V1.10.0.

I’m on XP-home 2GHz Intel Pentium 4 using a masterCRD3 programmer in mode1 (Mouse 3.58 MHz). The programmer is powered by an external +9V supply, the titanium has been tested again by the dealer and is ok. I found the following suggestions and tried them all:



- disable FIFO buffer for COM

- open other applications like Winword, Excel, Outlook etc

- press CTRL-ALT-DEL a few times to awake Card Progger

- connect to the internet while Card Progger is sending trapkey

- disconnect and again connect the serial cable a few times

- try to run the programmer in mode 8 (Phoenix 3.58 MHz)

- open Explorer and try a large search for files while Card Progger is sending trapkey

- clean the contacts of the card



Now there are no more ideas left on my side L

Any advice would be much appreciated.



At least this is a summary of opportunities to get past the trapcode error on a blue titanium.

It didn’t work for me but maybe it’s helpful for others. If anyone has any new suggestions please add it here so others may benefit.



thx

BTW: all this is not my work, I just collected it

On this site you will fine earlier versions of Tit programmer , V 1.7 , 1.9, and 1.8 you could one of these. I use 1.8.1 and find it works best , it may hang for some time but works for me.

thx for that advise. I actually tried Card Progger from V1.5 up to V1.10.2
without any success.

Card Progger is using my CPU's bandwith to 100% all the time while erase
is started. Is that normal?

Try the programmer that comes with the mighty bosum (TM:cool:. That got past trapcode first time with my card, no problem.

Go to Start; right click My Computer then Properties, click the Hardware tab then Device Manager.

Expand Ports (COM & LPT) on the tree; right click the Com port you are using, then Properties, Port Settings and click on Advanced - then you'll see the option :D - thanks Bill Gates for making windows so easy!

thx for the suggestion.
I gave it a try with TMB 1.8.3 and it came up with the message "No CARD !!!" after I pressed ERASE TC. I double-checked it with another titanium, same result. Both of the cards tested by the dealer to be ok.

thx neway

Got stuck at "Trapping titanium card... please wait" :-(

If you are not getting an ATR, it means that either the cards are stuffed or something is already programmed on the card.

When the dealer tested them, did he erase them and leave an ATR on the card? It could be that your programmer is faulty?

I just re-read your post as well. You'll definitely want phoenix mode on your programmer.

When I connect to the programmer with Titanium Card Progger I got "No ATR ! unsupported Titanium OS found." So I believe there's no ATR. I'm not sure now if my programmer is ok. I do not have any other cards here at the moment to check.

thx for the suggestion

I have never gotten the titanium v.10.2 to work. I use this tj1965 v1.1
here on this site, just go to this link:
http://www.satellites.co.uk/php-bin/forum/showthread.php?t=23946

You have to use a programmer that has a phoenix mode at 3.57 mhz
This tj1965 prog automatically erases the card. Try this and your card will probable work. Tj1965 v1.1 is much faster that the titanium v1.10.0/1/2.

thx for that advice.
I tried to erase my titanium with Titaniumloader from TJ1965 both V1.0 and V1.1 already
without success. It displays "Trapping card.." and after about 20 minutes "Trapping card failed."
My MasterCRD3 was set to phoenix mode at 3.58MHz and i gave it a second try in mouse mode 3.58 MHz. No luck :-(

thx again for trying to help

I checked the programmer with a few funcards and it fails to operate succesfully.
It seams it's defective and I send it back to the dealer by tomorrow.

thx again to all who tried to help me
