I've never had any issues back in the day when I used a Willem with XP. Try getting any software updates and checking settings. Settings can be a bitch on the Willems

word i run a willem on my xp lappy. works fine. try uninstalling, redownloading and reinstalling it again. or try a slightly older version, like 1 less than the newest. make sure it supports your board.

Never had issues with the Willem on Win98 or XP. Always had issues burning SST chips vs Amtels.

hey guys thanks for the help, I figured it out. I just kept downloading a different version untill it worked. Apparently for some reason only version (0.97j) willl work with my computer?

heres a good write up on how to erase the SST27SF512 chip, it was a pain in the *** for me to figure this ---- out for a while.

You do realize there are different versions of the Willem burner, right? I bought mine like 3 years ago. It has the jumpers in completely different locations than what most writeups say and overall just seems to hate SST chips. Any time I get a SST chip it is a 50/50 chance it will erase and write properly.

Mine was a pain in the *** to setup and get jumpers right, get the settings right for the chips, etc, but finally got it.

All you had to do was download the drivers it was talking about, google would tell you where to get them.
