    Does your FW try to rotate when you select some filter wheel position ? Do you hear some noise without FW's movement ?
    Maybe, your blue strip is very tight. You can adjust it as described in FW's manual.

    Furthermore, could you check your FW independently with CCDOps downloaded from http://www.sbig.com/support/software/ ?
    1) Establish link to your camera.
    2) Press Filter -> Filter Setup menu.
    3) Inside the "Filter Wheel Setup" dialog, set "Filter Wheel Type" to "Auto" and driver should automatically
    select the proper filter wheel, similarly to my shown in attachments.
    4) Close the dialog and FW should start to move to desired position.
    5) You can do more checks inside the Filter menu.

    1) Which Windows OS do you use ?
    2) Have you the latest Sbig driver installed on your system ?

    Try to download and run the latest SetupDriverChecker64 installer from sbig web page.

    Have you a different SBIG camera with I2C port ? If so, connect your FW to that camera
    and try it there.

    The STL should have FW inside its body, so please try to create a log file instead of changing the camera.
    The log file could _possibly_ show us where the problem is.

    1) Open SbigDriverChecker application and press "Debug/Log" button in bottom right corner.
    2) Set checkboxes as shown in attachment.
    3) Run CCDOPS and try to select filter wheel type as previously.
    4) When you see an error message windows you have mentioned, close CCDOPs and send me your log file.

    If not longer than 1-2 MB, send it as an attachment to my astrosoft@email.cz address.
    If too long, put it somewhere in Dropbox and send me a link. I will check it and let you know.
    This may take some time and I cannot guarantee we will locate the source of your FW problem.

    I see, you have very old DriverChecker64 application installed on your system.
    Please _download_ and _run_ a new SetupDriverChecker64 from SBIG web page:
    http://www.sbig.com/support/software/

    Windows DriverChecker64
    Download
    the DriverChecker64 Installer

    You can connect the FW8G-STXL to the STL without causing any trouble, as long as you do it while the STL is de-energized. You can unplug the ribbon cable for the 5 position wheel that is mounted inside of the top cover (located in the rear section of the camera) to disable it but it is not necessary. Did you attach the FW8G to the STXL while the camera was energized? This will blow a fuse (or two) behind the I2C connector, if not something worse, and the camera will have to come in for repair.
