I've created a vi which reads data from one channel on my USB 6225 OEM device, displays the data to a chart, and writes the data to a .csv file using the write to spreadsheet file vi. The DAQ acquisition mode is set to Continuous Samples; however it behaves as if it were set to N Samples, as the number of data points written to my .csv file is equal to the number specified in the Samples to Read input.
I replaced the DAQmx Assistant vi with the Simulate Signal vi and observed the same behavior. Why does this happen?
Attached below is my vi.

When the acquisition mode is set to continuous samples, the samples to read input becomes the buffer size -- not the number of samples read. I expect the DAQ to collect samples until I stop the vi. This is the behavior I have always seen in the past, so don't know why it is any different this time.
