    Drip feed Meldas 520AMR Info and Settings needed.

    Working with a new to us 1997 Mighty Comet 850. Its rocking a Mitsubishi Meldas 520AMR.

    I have read and searched all over and I cant seem to find the correct settings to get Drip feed/Tape mode work. Seems like every software I have dnc4u, Preditor, NCNet...All have different terms for each setting. I can send and receive programs to memory just fine. If anyone can go over the parameters and device settings along with a solid program to use for drip feeding along with settings would be a HUGE life saver!!

    Huge thanks!

    ...it maybe your serial cable setup. USB to Serial adapters do not play well usually with DNC Is your cable homemade 3 wire? Use a fully wired Null Modem type serial cable (PC to PC) if, possible.

    This could be an issue. I have been using a laptop with a USB to serial adapter. I had been just assuming that if Sending to and from machine memory worked, it would work or drip feeding. The cable Im using was given to us by the previous owner.
