Transfer files from scope to PC via GPIB

HI, how do i transfer the files to my computer? i am using LabVIEW 8.0 and TDS 694C scope. i tried using the Hardcopy start command but it doesnt save it into my C drive. i also tried to use TKTDS Hardcopy.vi from the drives but it also wont work. when i type hardcopy?  it will show this . BMPC;GPI;LAN;HARDC;"fd0:/c:/TEK??   .BMP"
when i type hardcopy:filename? it will come out "fd0:/c:/TEK??   .BMP". instead of saving it to the diskette on the scope i want to be save it in my harddisk. how do i set it to do so?

That command will obviously not work because it is a query. Anytime you append a '?' to the end of a command, you are asking the instrument to provide some data. You are not telling it to save anything?

 

A careful read of the instrument manual is probably in order.

Since you have 8.0, I don't know why you just don't open it yourself.

 

In any case, it really needed some cleanup. I've posted a modified version. As you can see, the correct command for the hardcopy is to direct it to the GPIB port. You then do a read and save it to a file.

I can't run it but you don't have a valid path. All that you have is C:\. You need to have a file name.
