Hey there, i got my new prog unit and cant get it to act the way the manual states. If i plug in the usb the green light comes on with a flashing red for a few seconds then both go out. If i hold the button while i plug in the usb i get a green, then red, then nothing. until i let go then they alternate.

I plugged into a brand new( working) jive and it says the prog unit is found but not an update-able esc

whats my problem?

IIRC ProgUNIT only works with Jive PRO and KOSMIK esc's.

ProgDISC for HeliJive and Jive (?) esc's.

I use ProgCARD II for my Jive 80+ HV v9 esc. and ProgCARD I for my Jazz'.

I believe that this is correct

Just to clarify, you are trying to update a Jive (not HeliJIVE, nor JivePRO) esc. (?)

ProgDisk does not works with regular Jives either, only Heli Jive & Kosmik.

You need an old prog card for it, yeah, I know

Chago,

Prodisc contains ProgCard and ProgCardII for use with regular Jives.

Second pic is of mine hooked up to a Jive HV.

Then I don't know WHY the Progdisk I had would not recognize my Power Jive 120HV, tried it over and over and no luck. It never gave me the option to chose my Jive when connected. I recall you texting me it does not wotk on the Jive.
It worked fine on the Kosmik 200.
Something I did wrong?

-------------------------------------

Ok now I SEE!
I did not choose the Progcard I option. Wish It was MORE INTUITIVE THAN THAT! AHHHHH

I still need to get a Prog-unit

I bought the prog unit before it was really even known about. My bad. There still is almost no information available on it.

If anyone has a spare disk ill take it

Maybe Dr.Ben can elaborate on this (?)
It's my understanding that the ProgDisc(s) are no-longer being produced (?)

Possibly there is just a delay in production (?) I'm not for certain about this, just trying-to give you a heads-up if this is the case.

ProgDisc was permanently d/c'd due to component expense and the economic realities of having to produce excessive numbers in a single production run.

Santiago, is your ProgDisc using the V1.09 firmware upgrade?

Until I upgraded the ProgDisc to V1.09, I had similar issues with the Kos.

Thanks EE,
I cannot recall what version it had, but it had the last version up to March 2013.
I am "almost" sure I tried every option shown except Kosmik on my Jive, and gave up after 30 min in frustration. It worked perfectly with the Kosmik.

Santiago, the latest ProgDisc update was to address upgrading to the Kosmik Version 4.2....and the latest Kosmik Version is 4.5

So I'm pretty sure your ProgDisc needs to be updated.

http://www.kontronik.com/index.php?...mid=193&lang=en

Might be worth a try to update to V1.09....

But, since it worked on the Kosmik, I don't know what to say.

Version 1.09 = Version 1.9....same thing.

When you download it, the file name is ".../PROGDISC_RC_V109.zip"

Does lead to some confusion, doesn't it?
