Subject: AreaDetector ADAndor - iXon Ultra 888
From: "Dunning, Michael" <mdunning@slac.stanford.edu>

I'm having problems running ADAndor (R2-4) on RHEL6 64-bit (kernel
2.6.32-573.8.1.el6.x86_64) with an Andor iXon Ultra 888 USB 3.0 CCD.
I'm able to acquire an image with the Andor SDK (version 2.99.30000.1)
using their example programs, but I get the following when running
AreaDetector:

Other modules I'm using are:
asyn 4-27
busy 1-6-1
calc 3-6-1
sscan 2-10

I've tried using an earlier version of the SDK (2.98.30000.0) and
earlier versions of AreaDetector (R2-2, R1-9-1) but I get similar
errors.  Has anyone gotten an iXon USB camera working with
AreaDetector?
Incidentally, an Andor iDus USB 2.0 CCD does work with the same
versions of AreaDetector and the Andor SDK.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
