Can I protect certain areas of memory from being overwritten when loading through the USB Tap?

We are working with the 56800e 56f8367 chip.


We set up a section of memory in the linker file where we load code for an FPGA.  This is loaded through a SCI port.


In the Classic IDE I was using the Local Hardware Connection to load the chip and this area of the code was left untouched.  However, if I load with the USB Tap, this area of memory gets wiped out.


We have moved to new computers which do not have parallel ports, so I am required to use the USB Tap.  Why there is this difference and if there is anyway to avoid wiping out this memory when using the USB Tap?
