    Hello! I updated CCDOps and got the ST-i working. Thank you.

    I put the ferrite core on the USB cable, but it is loose and slides everywhere. I've never attached one before.

    Is there a way to tighten it so that it stays put? (Other than with duct tape, that is!) Thank you and best regards.

    Usually the best approach is to loop the cable through the ferrite twice. It works better that way also (better at blocking electrical noise).
