Why does ACT lamp goes off when I move the E8a unit while it operates?

Latest Updated:03/12/2008

Question:

When I physically move the E8a unit while it is in operation, the ACT lamp goes off.

Answer:

Make sure you are using the USB cable that was bundled with the E8a unit.

Do not use any other USB cable (such as the cable bundled with E8 or E10A-USB) Due to the structure of E8a, the USB connector on cables other than those bundled with this product may not reach deep enough into the unit.
When you move the unit, the connector may become disconnected, causing the debug process to terminate and generate an error.
