Unable to see Digilent Analog Discovery 2 device in Analog Input Recorder app

7 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I'm able to run successfully the code reported below, but I can't see my Analog Discovery 2 device in the Analog Input Recorder app (nor Analog Output Generator).
I can see the device in the Hardware Manager, but when I click on the device I get the following error message:
Many thanks in advance for any help or advice.
dev = daqlist
dq = daq("digilent")
addoutput(dq, "AD1", "1", "Voltage");
addoutput(dq, "AD1", "2", "Voltage");
ch_out = dq.Channels(1:2);
ch_out(1).Name = "AD1_1_out";
ch_out(2).Name = "AD1_2_out"
addinput(dq, "AD1", "1", "Voltage");
addinput(dq, "AD1", "2", "Voltage");
ch_in = dq.Channels(3:4);
ch_in(1).Name = "AD1_1_in";
ch_in(2).Name = "AD1_2_in"
rate = 300e3;
dq.Rate = rate;
% Specify a 10 Hz sine wave for 1 second.
f = 10;
totalduration = 1;
n = totalduration * rate;
t = (1:n)/rate;
output = sin(2*pi*f*t)';
[data, startTime] = readwrite(dq, [output 2*output]);
plot(data.Time, data.AD1_1_in, data.Time, data.AD1_2_in);
xlabel('Time (s)');
ylabel('Voltage (V)');

no progress from my side, still unable to use Analog Input Recorder app.
As work arround I've used the code posted above.

I should mention that datestr is discouraged. Prefer datetime where possible.
For example,
dt = datetime("now","Format","dd-MMM-yyyy-HH-mm-ss")
dt = datetime
ans = "12-Sep-2022-20-59-59"
