Hi Cadiz,


Thank you for your post. Your application sounds very interesting. I have been looking into your issue and I was wondering if it would be possible if you could firstly try downloading the latest version of the DAQmx drivers called DAQmx 8.8.


This can be found at the following link:


If this fails to work, please can you try to insert the card into another one of the PCI slots. Alternatively, I was wondering if it would be possible to test your setup using another PCI card that you know works, so you can test to make sure the PCI slot is functioning correctly.

I hope this information helps.


Kind regards,

Hi J Powers,


Thanks for your help .  I tried the   new driver  and it has not made   things  better .


previously   the card  would   show up with a  green icon  and  a  little red cross . Now it is  just white . Also  it no longer  gets the   irq  number and the  hex  address.


Thing  have become  worse .


I  talked to   NI and they were  very  helpfull .  I discovered that if the card has two  slots it  can work on  3.3 Volts and  5 Volts   in the PCI  slot .


 So mine should work .  I tried  all 3 available slots  .  NI  engineer thinks it is a dud .  Only on thing left is to  try in another  machine .


Will  do on the 18th October . Will keep you informed .
