a few days it has run with 7 Block erupter without Problems, then it has begun to error
it is the same hub as before, (I have changed nothing), then I tried another hub, another port, cgminer, -> always errors

So different miner clients, different USB ports, different USB hubs, all result in lots of errors..

I guess you could try them on a different computer, but it sounds like the devices themselves are having issues. Are they overclocked? Do they get very hot?

Does it make any difference if you just try to run 1 or 2 instead of so many at once?

I have tried it on a notebook and it works if I connect max. 3 Sticks there (Linux + Win); they are not overclocked; - I guess it has to do with the cheap HUB's and their PSU's that only give enough current at low temperatures?!
I hope I get next week the Anker USB 3.0 HUB and then this works correctly.

Could be a power issue, yes.

I guess the best thing to do is; find out which hubs are used by people mining with 50 of those sticks. Buy the same hub. Wink

Or, FINALLY, implement an optional backup-pool in the software.
(Waiting for this for a long time...)(don't know if this was discussed lately, sorry if so)

Nobody can or should demand a 100% stable service. The miner and the pool are terrific enough! Nothing to complain about.
But just the opportunity to add a backup pool for these short periods with problems would be an enormous bonus for all of us.

BitMinter client version 1.4.0 is out.

Changes from 1.3.2 to 1.4.0:
  • Added support for BFL SC (Butterfly Labs ASIC)
  • Fix hashrate measurements for ASICMiner Block Erupter USB
  • Fix hashrate gauge being stuck on non-zero value when you stop mining while
      in performance mode, then leave performance mode
  • Mac OS X: Fix "probe all ports" to find ASICMiner Block Erupter USB
  • Mac OS X: Use screen menu and dock icon, like other Mac apps
  • Default to scanning all ports for external devices on startup
  • Remove yellow and red zones and warning light on gauges
  • Remove green zone on gauges for devices where we can't determine stock
      hashrate. BFL FPGA, BFL ASIC, Icarus-compatible devices (hashrate varies).
  • Recognize more devices

Try it out:


If you have issues with 1.4.0 then you can still get the previous release (1.3.2) at http://bitminter.com/client/1.3.2/bitminter.jnlp

Next up will be Stratum and backup pools.

Where I can buy USB for mining?

Some miners moved elsewhere as we were under heavy DDoS attacks for several days and the service was very unstable. Now we have anti DDoS protection from Black Lotus and things look stable again.

What in the hell is icarus and where did it go? haha. Please help I loved bitminter cause its simple. All i have is one little USB ASIC miner and its just a hobby but i'm stuck.

Thanks.

Hey, just got my asicminer usb and am hoping to get hashing with you, but have run into a problem. I'm running Ubuntu 13.04, and when I try to start the program, it gets to the "downloading" screen and just sits at 0%, rather than starting. Is the problem on your end, or do I need to do something else? I'm running Java programs through IcedTea.

OK, got the program running by switching from IcedTea to Java proper, so a step in the right direction. However, it is only recognizing my cpu and not my ASICminer usb (which has a solid green light). I've tried running the suggested "sudo modprobe ftdi_sio vendor=0x0403 product=0x6014", which runs but doesn't seem to change anything, and the other suggested linux command ("sudo usermod -a -G dialout USERNAME") doesn't seem to work. Further suggestions?

That's a lot of errors. Could it be an issue with the USB hub? Have you tried whether it works with bfgminer?
The hub being the problem would be my guess. Each USB erupter draws 510mA, assuming you have the newer ones. Typical 10-port hubs only ship with a 4A power supply, which would limit them to 7 erupters. Some can take up to 500mA from the host, but some hosts can't supply that and even if your can, that only gets up up to 8. Many 7-port hubs have a 3A power supply, which will get you 5 erupters. If removing erupters makes it work stably, it's likely the hub or power supply.

If you have a PC power supply handy, it can probably supply 5A at +5V off any of its power connectors without a problem. You can splice that to your USB hub's power cable.
