no, temperature was ~62°C, now it is ~59°C

Doesn't sound like something that would make a difference. Oh well, as long as it works I guess. Smiley

is there any way to automatically stop and restart BitMinter client every ~1-2 hours?
TIA
A friend of mine is getting the same error about 3 times a day with the latest mining client.  He only runs two SC Singles.

A friend of mine is getting the same error about 3 times a day with the latest mining client.  He only runs two SC Singles.

The auto rescan isn't finding them I guess because they don't work properly for a while after they come back. It sees a new COM port, probes it, determines there is no mining device. After that it doesn't try again, but the single starts working again a couple minutes later. At least that is what this sounds like.

I think I'll need to put in a new option for the auto rescan to keep retrying all ports not just new ones. It will produce a lot of errors on computers with COM ports that are not for mining. But it seems useful in this case.

doc I got 3 blades today  I only use java and bitminter  will java probe an ethernet jack I know it looks at usb ports and will find asic miner usb sticks pretty well or do I need to use a different client?

I have been reading bfgminer trying to figure out how to setup with bitminter pool.

No, you have to use the built-in mining software. I don't have a blade myself, but tried to write some instructions here, based on info from blade users:

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27062.msg3046129#msg3046129

Maybe in the future BitMinter client can work as a stratum proxy, but not yet.

Hi, I'm trying to make my usb asicminer block erupter work with the bitminter client.
I have the silabs drivers installed, and my computer can recognize the miner.
However, the bitminter client returns the error "Probe of port COM3 failed: timeout".
Any ideas on what's wrong?

Is COM3 where the block erupter stick is? If you go "devices" -> "probe all ports" in the menu without the block erupter plugged in, there is no message about COM3 ?

Is it plugged directly into the computer? Or do you have a USB hub, perhaps with several block erupters connected?

I get the impression that most often the problem is that the block erupter doesn't get enough power. Often because powered USB hubs ship with weak power supplies.

Also, when the block erupter is not plugged in, and I probe all ports, I just get the message "Probe failed: No serial ports found."

CTL-ALT -Delete bitminter as it erases any hangups.
Uninstall drivers reboot reinstall drivers plug usb in port restart bitminter few times as well as unplug and replug usb.
That you can do first too.

Mostly underpowered ports....

Can you try bfgminer? There is a link at the frontpage of https://bitminter.com to get it and you can run it from the command line like so:

Code:
bfgminer -o stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:3333 -u user_worker -p password

At this point I would think the erupter stick is broken, but there has been 1 user reporting that bfgminer works for him and not BitMinter client.

IMO-Something to do with the MB controllers etc. with Bitminter.

Hi,
I started on the .333 usb sticks, and BitMinter was the only mining program that would work with them on XP, despite successful installs of the other products.

First: each .333 Ghs stick takes 0.5 amps to run.  That means you need a powered hub to run them. I use the DLink powered hub which has 7 slots and 6 amps total, which means one usb slot per power hub has to stay open. 

So my first suggestion to see if it can run at all is to use a powered hub and see if it clears up the mining software issues, because if there is not enough juice to activate hardware, software can malfunction.

Second: start with only one in the hub. 

Third: expect to have to install at least two different sets of drivers until the item is found (But given it doesn't see the stick in the usb, I would say it is underpowered).  I have found success with Silicon Graphics USBXpress_SDK.exe which automatically installs the drivers for you I think I remember.

These were far more successful than the CP210x_VCP_Windows drivers I think.

Hope this helps, and come back as you make progress. Thanks.

Thanks for the info on optional drivers. That should do it.
I just heard yesterday a guy measured the USB's when under heavy hashing and they run up to 1A!

This driver is used by all mining clients except CGMiner for BFL units:

I don't know if you need to uninstall or disable the winusb stuff for the normal FTDI driver to work. Anyone know?
