Mac NI USB-6009 installation

Hi there. 


Me and my teacher are trying to install a NI USB-6009 in a snow leopard Max OS. We will use it in LabView2009®. At this moment we already installed the drivers and the application "lsdaq" already detects it: "NI USB-6009: "Dev1"    (USB0::0x3923::0x717B::01183702::RAW)"


Moreover, when we click "NI DAQmx base task configuration", in the LabView2009®, we can actually create a task with the device "NI USB-6009: "Dev1"            (USB0::0x3923::0x717B::01183702::RAW)". However, after creating a task, like, for instance, "analog input", we can't see the task in the LabView in the button: (Measurement I/O -> DAQmx base - Data acquisition ->) "DAQmx Task Name Constant".


Thank you very much for your time,

Hi Littlepig!


This is expected behaviour because you are working on the DAQmx Base version of the driver. You can try to introduce the name of your task directly on the costant or follow the directions on the following link:


I hope this info helps.


Have a great day!!!

After I tried that:
Error -200428 occurred at an unidentified location 
Possible reason(s):
Value passed to the Task/Channels In control is invalid.
after i created a task named "test", with an "analog input", and, in the LabView, made a task/channel, write "test" in it, and join it to a DAmxbase start task.

Hi littlepig,


Were you able to measure a voltage with your NI USB-6009 and display it in LabVIEW?

Hi Rob,


John is right. You should create a new topic.

Just in case, I think this is the needed document:
