I am having a serious problem with Flash Magic: Downloaded from:
To carry out firmware (basic software) updating in MagicSat Easy/Flat Sat Easy systems
you are requested to:
Use a Microsoft Windows operating environment (2000, Xp)
Download and Install the USB driver for Teleco products, available at the following
link http://www.support-telecogroup.com/software/InstallTelecoUsbDriver.exe
Download and Install the programming software available at the following link:
http://www.flashmagictool.com/download.html&d=FlashMagic.exe
Download and Install the microcode (firmware), available at the following link :
http://www.support-telecogroup.com/software/InstallMagicSatEasyFirmware.exe
Once the individual software packages have been installed, use a USB cable to
connect the MagicSat Easy/Flat Sat Easy to your computer and wait for correct
recognition by your computer.
Check on which virtual COM port the MagicSat Easy system appears to be
recognised (in the example, it appears as visible on the COM3 port).

HOWEVER - the Program does not correspond with the PDF Manual etc and asks for a Device to set.

For the MagicSat Easy I do not know what to select and have now lost ALL programming on the Sat System system. This included I am having a serious problem with Flash Magic: Downloaded from:

Flash Magic is a general purpose tool to help companies develop their products. Because it is general purpose we have no idea what products it is used for and how it is used. There is a lot of flexibility and lots of ways things can go wrong if you choose the wrong options, therefore it is not intended for end-user use. For example we have no idea what microcontroller Telecom used in your product. We have never heard of or seen the product you are using.

Your only option is to contact Telecom because they are the only ones who know how to configure Flash Magic for their product. Sorry.
