            else if (FIFO_FULL)
                { // read fifo
                    for (i=0;i<extension->ecp_fifo;i++)
                        if (string[BytesRead]==0x00) printf ("Something wrong!
    Read 0x00\n");
                    time_start=FxParGetTickCount(); // timeout reset

    As you can see the if istruction isn't exactly "if (0) ..". I user this
    because during image
    transfer never occurs a 0x00 byte. Normally an erorr on transfer image is
    read as 0xFF.
    Infact without the if instruction there are about 10 bad pixel, with it
    there are about 60% of
    bad image (the strange is the periodical error..... the black pixel are
    periodical! If you want
    i can send the image, about 100K).
