You would scarcely believe it now worked.....not only that my second board also came good after a good scrub.
  3. Thankyou that is a huge help. I'm going to go back and very carefully redo the SoC pins. Ive been looking for the problem on the software/firmware side. The problem occurred in both boards that I made and my thinking was that it would be difficult to repeat the same problem twice on both boards. I agree with you saying the SoC is tight, I might go as far as saying f$&@ing tight.
  4. I recently decided to try and make my own scsi2sd v4.2 from the project shared on github. I've managed to build 2 boards and flash a hex file to the cypress chip and then upgrade the firmware. It's at this stage I've come unstuck.

Both boards fail the self test on the configuration utility and I've now come to a dead end on where to proceed from here. I was wondering if anyone cou
