    S.G.D. command not returning a value

    Clive Lacey

      Hi again,

      Please could take a look at the attached screen grab. It's a USB trace of an application using SGD commands to interrogate a printer.

      The application sends 6 concatenated SGD commands then "listens" for a response. I noticed that the first time I sent to the request I get all 6 responses as expected. The next time and thereafter the first response is missing? (link OS version request)

      I have put a 7th SGD command in the front as a test and then that dissapears (after the first printer power cycle and send) and the missing one appears so I know its not a pure syntax error but associated with sending back a response to the first request in the concatenated command string.


      The attached screen grabs shows a screen grab from my USB trace tool. You can see that the first time the concatenated SGD command is sent the printer returns 6 values the next time the same command is sent the printer only returns 5?


      I have tried inserting a 0x0d0x0a after the "END\x20" but get the same result.


      If I switch the printer off and on again and resend the command then the first SGD command is returned properly with the others again. However sending the same command again then causes the response to the first command to not be sent back from the printer again. This keeps happening till I power cycle the printer.


      I am "guessing" its more to do with how i finish the command than start the next one?


      Any help much appreciated
