ok , i decided i wanted a raw file all my own.
ive had libusb 1.8.0 in and working, connected pv2 to pc , added
"Dakota PV2 Digital Camera, Bulk Interface, Version 02/15/2004, 0.1.8.0"=LIBUSB_COMP_IF, USB\VID_0dca&PID_0027
to libusb.inf and got windows to accept libusb as my driver.
removed camera from pc, snapped pic [ of my desk ], immediately connected camera back to pc
opened up the usb poker, camera config 00 was selected already.
set bulk out as endpoint
set binary data file to a file i had pasted " 4c 61 4d 53 1d ba ab 1d 00 00 10 00 80 00 00 27 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 " into using xvi32.
changed endpoint setting to bulk in
set wlength to 5000000 , forgot exact value necessary
clicked sent it again
renamed angerRcvd.txt to raw001.raw
opened raw001.raw in xvi32 and trimmed off excess zeros, reducing it to 1,048,589 bytes
placed raw to http://pidgin128.web1000.com/raw001.raw
if somebody would [has? ] write a simple tool / script to play with the raw and get it the the stop signs level of quality i would welcome it because even this level of functionality is enough to kept me satisfied [ for the time being ]
