- Jan 31, 2005Hello John, thanks for the welcome.Here some facts of me and my experience about knitting, kh930 and so on....I have a kh930, a fb100 disk drive and a ppd. Since November last year I am looking for a possibility to connect my km with my pc. I found several Information in the internet and so I began to work.But the solutions doesn't works (I don't know why) and so I begann to built my own cable to connect the pc with the fb100. The cable had a TTL to CMOS-converter and a nor-gatter to convert rx and tx from +5V to ground an back. It's expensive, but it works good. Then I found a software, based on basic, in the internet for the communication between pc and fb100. The software is called sector2. I had to adapt the software for my system and it also works for 80%. So, now I am able to give instructions to the fb100 and get back the (error) level/codes. At next I will save a simple pattern from km to the disk and then I will try to read the data from the disk into the pc for analyse. I think your analyse will help me. If someone wants the layout and the software, I can put them here into the group.In the next time I will directly connect the pc to the kh930, because I want to save the pattern directly on the pc. Perhaps I will have the possibility to send pattern by eMail to friends and so an.DAK and the necessary cable is much to expensive for, therefor I will create it by myself.To connect a palm or pocketpc with the km is a very good Idea. I hope I can help in next time, although I am not a professional.Greetings Holger----- Original Message -----From: John R.

Hello Holger, and Welcome.
Glad to have you on the list.
The focus here at the moment is to figure out the data format the KH930
uses to save/load patterns to the disk drive.
I have a good start on it, and I'm hoping some other engineer types will
pitch in. I do not know what level you wish to particpate at, but any
help is appreciated.
