Update on Touchscreen Controller:
Well Armen over at DigitalWW is trying to help me out with my Lilliput issues. He asked me to ship out the monitor so maybe he can patch things up for me with out having to spend additional funds on that piece of **** lcd...
The connections to the Opus are crimped quite well. Ive troubleshot this possiblity and I highly doubt its a connection issue. When attempting the tests the motor is running. Its triggered by the ignition. This doesnt seem to be the case either :/
I still havn't confirmed whether its the USB length or EMI from the power cables being so close to the USB cable. Reason is because all cables are already tie wrapped under the carpet. And all I have is a spare 3 and 6 foot usb cable.
The cd-rom works like a dream (much faster/all cd's read)when using the 3 and 6 foot directly connected to the computer. However when connected to the USB hub(hub is attached to a 15 foot usb cable then to the PC). The cd-rom is seen perfectly fine however it reads only 5 out of 10 cd's. It makes a spin up sound then it stops and loops like this with light blinking.
I get the same senario when attaching the 15 foot cable to my cd-rom.
CD-Rom-> 50pin -> Converter Standard IDE 40pin(w/ floppy connector for power)-> USB adapter-> Belkin USB powered 4 port hub-> 15 foot USB-> to PC
SAscooby I was about to buy one of those converter at radio shack when i realized that it didnt list 5v. However if now after you mentioning that I'm gonna give that a try...
What doesnt make sence is that i thought by buying an active USB hub it would act as a signal repeater for the 15 foot cable. However that doesnt seem to be the case...
