I've spent a lot of time trying to configurate the GPIB-USB interface for the HP4195. After installing 1) the Agilent libraries, 2) the drivers, 3) the matlab Instrument Toolbox, 4) Jamie script, 5) Alice's script the computer can see the HP but still they can't 'talk' to each other.
I give up. I asked Alice Wang how she managed to get data. I'm not sure she used the GPIB interace. Rob said she might have used the old fashion floppy disks that we can't read anymore here.
I would really appreciate any suggestion by anyone who happened to have the same problems.


Alice and Jamie used the USB-GPIB interface. You should just try using the black laptop which already has this capability or ask Jamie Rollins
who actually knows something.
