I'm hoping someone here can help me out.
I've finallly gotten around to dragging all of the track I have been saving for the last few years up from the basement and putting together a nice four lane permanent layout.
So far,so good,all has gone pretty well as a result of all of the great resources on the web.
So I decided to put together a lap counter/timer using the "Lap Timer 2000" software that I downloaded off of the net.
Using parts I bought from Radio Shack,I assembled the sensors for the track using the photo cell method.
Only problem is,I am running Win XP,and I have tried every concievable thing possible,on both my laptop(3 months old),and my desktop.Neither computer will recognize the unit I built.
Anyone else run into this problem,and if so,is there any way around it???
I hooked up a game pad to the computer,and the software did recognize that,but I really want to try the sensor I already built before going back to square one.
Thanks,any and all input would be MUCH appreciated!!!!!!!
