I have a Top2048 and am running TopWin 3.53. I've used this to program a few BIOS chips for my PC when the flasher program fails.

I'm trying to program a "Winbond w39v080apz". I noticed it wasn't in the list of chips, but noticed a few that were similar, so I then installed TopWin v6.1... of course this doesn't work with the Top2048, but I found the following entry in the one of the device.lst files:

EEP Winbond w39v080f ,SST49LF008 4,sec=1

So I added that to the list for 3.53 and tried to run the chip... it seems able to erase, verify and read... but if I try to "blank" or "program" I usually get an error such as "USB Fail".

Can anyone help me out here???

Is it possible to add this chip to the list... are there some settings I'm missing in the tag line?

Is there a way to get TopWin 6.1 to work with a Top2048??

thanks for any tips or suggestions.

Not sure if I'm making progress or not...

It now will instantly "error" when I click "program"

I found I can erase the chip, then read the chip... and then program the blank data without issue, but when I load any *.BIN file I can that instant error. At the bottom of the screen it says:

000000___000000:Error at: (file=f5, chip=13)

It seems that the "file=f5" changes with the BIN file I load, but it always read the first line at "0: xx"

Any thoughts??

Here's a list of what I can and can't do... hope it helps figure this out:

Erase = "Sector erase OK"

Blank, If directly after an erase = "Read USB Bad!"
Blank, If directly after loading TopWin 3.53 = "000000:no blank chip at:=00"

Program = "000000:Error at: (file=XX,chip=13)"
**Note that "XX" changes based on what BIN file I load and displays the first two characters on what I call line "zero".

Verify = "000000:Error at: (file=XX,chip=13)"

Read = "OK!"

MFG = MFG ID=da,d0

are there any thoughts????

I admit defeat... ordered myself a new True-USB PRO GQ-4X. I just hope the programmer, software and support are better.
