    I'm not sure why this error is happened.

    I use Meade's DSI-IV monochrome camera, and installed Maxim DL 6.21 as a test.
    When I connect the camera, there was no error. But when I click "Exposure" button, I've got ReadoutMode error.
    I have tested meade's ASCOM driver in other software (APT: Astro-photography tool) And this error only occurs in the Maxim DL.

    I have no idea why this error occurs.

    It sounds like an error in the implementation of the ASCOM driver.

    If the driver does not implement FastReadout then it MUST implement ReadoutModes.

    Please try the ASCOM Conform tool on the driver - see if Conform thinks it works correctly (we can't run it because we don't have a DSI-IV). If Conform reports an error then please contact Meade technical support to correct the problem.

    If Conform does not report an error then let us know and we'll investigate whether there's an issue with our ASCOM plug-in. (I think this is unlikely since this is the first time someone has reported such a failure.)

    We recently had someone else contact us about this.
    Meade needs to fix their driver to provide at least a normal readout mode.
    Please contact Meade.

    Thank you all!
    I contacted the Meade, and received a new version of ASCOM driver!
    For other people who suffer this problem, I share this driver!.
    Thank you again!!
