Sorry to perseverate here, but just to clarify: does this mean that there are no drivers that will let you use VIs like AI Config, AI Read, AI Start, and the rest with the USB-6009?

Fantastic. Thank you.

I downloaded and installed the compatability VIs, but when I run a traditional 'analog in' VI the following error message appears:
Error -200220 occurred at Traditional NI-DAQ Compatibility VI: AI Group Config --> DAQmx Create Channel (AI-Voltage-Basic).vi
Is there something I've failed to do correctly?

To use the Traditional NI-DAQ Compatibility VIs with NI-DAQmx devices, you must configure the NI-DAQmx device descriptors in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to be similar to Traditional NI-DAQ device descriptors. Use the following guidelines to configure the device names in MAX:

Thanks for your advice. Your hunch was correct, and giving the device a numeric name eliminated the Error -200220.
However, I didn't get much further, and attempting to run the traditional AI Config VI returned a different error:
Error -200452 occurred at Traditional NI-DAQ Compatibility VI: AI Clock Config --> Property Node DAQmx Timing (arg 1) in AI Clock Config.vi --> AI Config.vi
The error code seems to indicate that AI Config.vi tries to use a property that is not supported by the USB-6009.
Any help is greatly appreciated ...

Thanks for your reply, which I've only just got to. I didn't specifically use the AI Clock Config.vi; rather, I just used the higher-level AI Config.vi, which in turn must have called the AI Clock Config.vi. I had though that hte comp[atibility VIs would extend to the level of the lower-order sub-VIs.
I see that it's sensible to make the transition to DAQmx, but still welcome any help in getting the traditional DAQ VIs working with the USB-6009.
Thanks to all,
