I have a problem with the csm software, I made the connection with the gyro (icg 360) using a dos startup disk (pc running XP) but the problem is that all the data in the csm software is showing 0 value or nothing and if I try to change it will go from 0 to 0 to nothing to 00 and so on..

Is the program detecting the gyro ok?
What happens when you try to do something like restore factory defaults,does it update or fail
What i/face lead are you using,the lead for the later 560 and variants is not the same as the one for the 360& 540.On the outside they look identical.

Also if you change LPT ports addresses
when you have booted from a DOS disk you need to make sure the write protect tab is closed on the floppy as it writes a file back to it.

the program is detecting the gyro, and i can reload the default setting, the software i'm using is for the 360 and the cable is home made from the info on the net

I know the earlier release versions of the CSM flight sim and also the gyro programmers had to be modified and an update was made available
to work with later processors AMD K7 or Intel PentiumII or later,but usually the exe gave an exception error in DOS ie wouldn't even run.Only other thing can think of is the gyro PIC chip is faulty and can't be written to & read properly anymore or your cable is wrong or something going on with the computers LPT settings in the BIOS.
If it has other options eg SPP,ECP uni and bi directional,try them all
Also check the LPT's interupt isn't being shared by another motherboard component.Usually they're set at 7 but can be 3 or 5 which is quite often used by soundcards in the DOS enviroment
