I was trying to read the code off of an 8MB 29F800 Chip, I have nothing to compare it to, but the .bin file that was saved came out to only 1 MB. Is there anything I can do to extend the reading range, or by default do programmers read everything off of the chip. Also could there be protection on the chip preventing me from reading it? Thanks Alot!

That is a correct size. 8MB is 8 M bits, not the bytes. 8M Bit = 1M bytes. There are different between MB and Mb. MB refer to "M Bits" and Mb refer to "M bytes"
