    Default Sure electronics mb-cm13111 usb host

    Hello,
    I saw these and like a large mouth bass, I took the bait and WHAM ! They hooked me, I bought 2 of these !
    http://www.sure-electronics.com/goods.php?id=1140 from Sure on eBay. Has anyone use one successfully ? Were you able to get the hex file the manual recommends to load into it ?

    I hooked my PICKit2 and read the memory and it is not empty, as yet I have not attempted communication via it's UART but that's next. The Manual states you have to load the hex which seems unavailable on their website, I will email for it, but as stated above it isn't un-programmed now.

    Ok hooked up to an Arduino as a serial port and with an USB flash drive installed the green LED comes on, but no love from the serial port.

    It seems to be a Firefox issue, when I go to their download page I can only see 2 downloads available, 1 for the manual, the other for USB assist, which is a communication terminal program in Chinese. I tried the "Downthemall" plugin and it sucked out 2 hex files and 2 zip files which have all the C libraries and .h files etc . . . Maybe I can make heads or tails from them.

    With some effort this might work for me, I have it reading one file name in a flash drive in a loop, not sure why it's looping,or not reading the others, but it's a start. If i can work this thing as I plan, I will add flash to my CNC machine as a serial feed, since that seems to be the way computers have gone. Too bad too, as the older computers only about 3/4 of the way supports USB, IMHO. I know the one at the shop sometimes does not become aware you plugged one in, so it's REBOOT !

    Keep us informed of your progress and of whatever documentation you find. I prototyped an Arduino compatible USB Host shield using Maxim's MAX3421E and a few support chips but it's SPI only and also needs a couple of interrupt lines so something with a serial interface is preferrable.

    I recently purchased 3 of these as well and have it working with serial!
    My question is how to create and write a file?
    I see no commands for writing to a file.
