8-16 bit: Can't get USB BDM to work on new install

Our 'workshop' machine barfed. Well, not totally, but enough that I want to get off it before it becomes terminal.

So, out came plastic and now there's a new E-Machines 3Gig Celeron machine with Windows XP Home sitting there.

Ok, took all the source and everything over. Then installed the CW 3.1 that came with my BDMs on the thing. Then the updates. Then the driver for USB. I copied over my custom license file.

Great. Builds, developement, and assembly work great. And fast.

But I can't find the 'target' to program anything. The Hardware Manager says the BDM is installed and working, and it appears under the Jungo the way it should. But when I go to do anything it says the device is missing or may not have power.

I've tried everything to make it work. It's not critical yet, as I still have the old machine sitting there, flakey as it is, and it still works. (I went back to check) But it's like playing the lottery to get that thing to boot. Besides, it's an old Win98 machine at 500Mhz and sooooo sssllloooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.

Any ideas? I'm stumped.

Mike
