    Hi All,

    I'm gonna post this here as there isn't a specific SDK forum.

    I have been doing some development work, writing my own custom software for a client, but every now and then, when trying to start a session I occasionally get 'The QM Board Memory is not ready to be accessed'

    This of course, stops all commands from working, the only way to recover is to reboot the PC.

    Can anyone explain why this may happen, and is there a way to recover from it without having to resort to rebooting the PC?

    I can't test atm, as I lost everything in a crash lol, waiting for a new SDK :)

    Hi Chris,

    If your QM2000 has more than 128MB, AND you have a pretty darn fast computer, that boots very quickly, AND you try to start LD2000 or your own program immediately after boot, it could be that the QM2000 will still be testing the large memory and thus, not be ready when you try to execute your program. We do have new firmware that tests memory around 8 times as fast, so that even those users with 1GB are still able to use the QM2000 very shortly after power-on. I am not sure if this is your problem or not, but I thought I would mention it...
