Failed to load firmware

Hi all,

I got a problem on opening usrp, but this program and the usrp worked
well before. The error message is as below:

[email protected]:~$ usrp_sounder.py -t -f 3M
write_internal_ram failed: error sending control message: Protocol error
usrp: failed to load firmware /usr/local/share/usrp/rev2/std.ihx.
Traceback (most recent call last):

line 2736, in sink_s
return _usrp_swig.sink_s(*args, **kwargs)
RuntimeError: can’t open usrp

Is there any problem of the board? what’s the problem it is?

Thank you so much in advance.

Regards,
Yan

The most common reason I’ve seen for this is using USB 1.1 instead of
2.0. The USRP will enumerate on the bus, but fail later when the host
software tries to open an actual high speed endpoint. A flaky or
non-spec cable can also cause the 2.0 negotiation to fail and fallback
to 1.1, with the same result.
