I recently damaged my AD2 (and my computer) by having a high voltage surge which killed the usb chip on the AD2 as well as the ferrite beads and the usb controller on the computer. I have replaced the usb chip and ferrites on the AD2, and replaced the computer. Now Waveforms recognizes that there is an AD2 connected and shows a serial number, but after a few moments Waveforms presents the error message " Device Opening Failed. The device is being used by another application. Device Programming Failed."
The computer is running Linux Mint 20, and I have installed Adept V2.20.2 and Waveforms
