Default willem (enhanced/dual power) burner how to! *56k/dsl=fucked!*

ok, a lot of people have the same questions about the willem burner and see others asking questions that may seem over their head which i believe is scaring some people away from buying/using the willem. it's a great unit and is almost 1/2 the price of the next cheapest/reliable chip burner, so here is a step by step on how to use a willem dual power programmer

first off, you want to use the provided printer cable that came with your burner, if you did not get one, be sure to get one that is UNDER 6 feet in length! so plug the male end in to your printer/parallel port, and the female end in to your programmer. the parallel port provides the data to the programmer NOT THE POWER! as of right now, you're burner will not be powered, we'll cover that in a minute, there's a 'reccomended' order in which to do these steps!


next you'll want to insert the provide disc in to your cd-rom drive and locate it on your computer. (if you did not receive a disc, go to www.willem.org and download version 097g).


after you locate it on your computer, double click the icon indicating the cd-rom's location and you will see this menu.......


then, double click the 'software' folder to see the versions of sofware that were provided for you to use (depending on when you got your burner, you may have different version available, but '097g' should be present as it is the most stable version of their software available).



double click on the '097g' folder to open it, and then click on the little 'eprom' icon to run the program....



if this is not your first time opening the software, and you already have your 'device' set to '29c256'(covered in just a minute if this is your first time), you will see these little pop up boxes when you run the program, they're just telling you to be sure to use the jumper wire between pins #3 and #31 and to shut down the program after every burn and restart it (isn't really neccesarry, but if you notice a problem with back to back burns, it's reccomended you disconnect the power supply to your burner, and close the program completely and start fresh).



now the program should be running and it's time to select your device type (which type of chip you're using). i'll use the 'at29c256' as an example, as it's the most commonly used chip, however, 27c256 chips are just as common really, so if you select that as your device, the steps will be the same except you won't need to use the jumper wire (covered in a minute) and your 'dip switches' will be set up a little differently (covered in a minute). (if this is your FIRST TIME opening the software and setting your 'device type', the little pop up boxes that i posted above will be showing up now (if you selected 29c256) instead of when you opened the program, just click 'ok')


look up top to see if your 'board type' is set to 'willem', if it's not, click on the text and it will change....



now that you have your device type selected, note the picture of the 'dip switches' and 'jumpers' on the software, the combination of these dips and jumpers will vary depening on what device you've selected, once again, this example is assuming that you're using a 29c256 (if you're using a 27c256, the jumpers stay the same, just the dip switches vary slightly).


here is where the first jumper and the dip switches are located on your burner, set them up to look exactly like the settings in the picture on the program (note: the 'blocks' in the picture that represents the jumper on the burner are to be place so they are on the two pins on the burner, that the block covers in the picture)


now there are three jumpers located here on your burner as well, they need to be positioned the same as the yellow blocks in the picture...



now, you're finally ready to install your chip in to the burner! you'll notice that they're are 32 pins on the ZIF socket on the burner, but you're chip only has 28 pins, that's fine, place the chip as pictured with the 'front' slots on the burner left empty.....


now, for the infamous dreaded 'jumper wire' that the willem requires you to use for 29c256 chips. it's really not as tough as everyone makes it out to be. get a THIN piece of wire, or a THIN paper clip and place it in pins #3 and #31 of the ZIF socket on the burner (pin #3 on the burner will actually be pin #1 of your chip, and pin #31 of your ZIF socket, will actually be the first empty slot after the last pin of your chip). now you're ready to close the lever on the ZIF socket, securing the chip and jumper wire in place.


now you're ready to 'power up' you're willem burner! as you can see in the picture, i'm using the provided usb power cable, if you didn't receive one, any usb cable will work that adapts to a usb source on your computer, and to the chip burner, you also have the option to use 12v power source from a wall outlet (plugs in to black housing next to usb power plug), but that's just gay.


ok, now we're moving back to the computer for your final steps, if you followed all of the steps accordingly, you should be ready to go now and the chip and burner are set up. go in the program and locate the 'electronic id' icon.


if you have everything set up properly, this box should pop up when you click the 'id' icon recognizing the type of chip you have in the burner, and the bottom at the bottom of the program, black text should indicate 'hardware present'.


an extra 'unneccessary' step is to then erase the chip before you try to reprogram it. i just do this out of habit, even with new chips, just for a piece of mind. the erase literally only take half a second, so don't think something is messed up if a little box pops up and goes right away, that was the chip erasing (you can also do a 'blank test' after you erase it, it's the icon with the little '?' on it located next to the 'id' icon).


now, you're ready to load the .bin file(your basemap, tune, whatever you refer to it as) that you created and saved in whatever rom editor you're using (uberdata, turbo edit, crome, etc.). just click this 'open file' icon and then browse you computer to find where you have the file saved, then double click it to load it (just like you would open a file in any other computer program).


now you should see this text at the bottom of the program after you've loaded your .bin file.


i like to double check the buffer just to make sure things look 'normal' (you'll know what the .bin file looks like after you do this a while and you can recognize by the first few lines of binary data in the buffer what program the .bin file was created in). this is just binary mumbo jumbo more or less, so, don't be like 'wtf y0, i don't see veee-tack '



now, go up to the top of the program (you can still be looking at the buffer page, but i went back to the 'device' tab on the bottom (front page so to speak) and click on the 'program chip' icon.


once you click that, it will take about 30 seconds for the chip to program (box like this picture, but with a red bar), and then directly after that, it will 'verify' the chip which takes about 2 seconds.


once the chip verify is complete, you will see this text at the bottom of the program, just lift the lever and remove the chip and you're good to go!!





now where's my hand jobs :P

It's really not that bad. I liked mine when I had it. Just went to the Burn1 because of the portable nature of it.

Great write-up kev. The world owes you one handjob for being one of the first to sit down and take the time for a write-up on this.

i dont get it, my willem has an installer for the software and doesn't require any jumper for 29c256 chips.

perhaps cause I got the 29c256 model on ebay? they listed that and a 27c256 model?

mine just works without one.
