    Default Problem D/L log file to Dell Desktop PC

    This is the first time I've tried to download a Predator log file to my PC, and I can not get it to work. I assume I'm doing something wrong. Here is what I'm doing:
    1. Plug in Predator to Radio Shack power supply
    2. Hook up serial cable to COM1 port of Dell 8200 Desktop PC w/ XP
    3. Go to Options/Troubleshooting/Log Upload
    The Predator then attempts to download the log file, but ends with 0% complete and giving me a "failed" message. The Serial Baud is 115200 on the Predator & PC. Can anyone walk me through the proper way to transfer the log file to my CMR_DAT viewer (Ver. 2.0). Thanks!

    I don't know why, but sometimes it takes 2-3 attempts.

    Try changing your Baud rate to 57600 and retry.

    Ok, with the Predator hooked up to your computer go to Options, Troubleshooting, and highlight Log Upload. On your computer open the CMR_DAT program, go to options, Port settings and make sure it's on 57600 and normally Com 1. Click on Log Upload on the Predator and then click on Tools Get log from Predator and it should start uploading.
