Debugging and Troubleshooting Tips
When connecting the USB cable from the PC to the C6748 DSP board, please use the USB port on the opposite side of the board from the power connector.
If winDSK reports that the PC cannot connect to the C6748 DSP board, close winDSK, power the board off, restart WinDSK and then start the board. The order of starting the winDSK software and starting the board matters.
Code Composer Studio does not support the access of files on a network drive. Instead, you have to select My Computer -> Z drive instead. It is the same location, but instead of the longer path \austin.utexas.edu\..., it will show Z:\.
