How to use a BlackcatUSB cable
Before you connect the BlackcatUSB device to your computer, please make sure you have downloadthe BlackcatUSB software (for Windows XP) (for Vista). If you are using Vista, please read theadditional directions inside the designated folder of the software release.If you have not done so, please download and installMicrosoft .net framework 2.0runtime.From the BlackcatUSB software directory, run and install the LibUSB setup file.
Install Device Driver
 Now connect the BlackcatUSB device to your computer. At this point, Windows should notify youthat a new USB device has been connected and will need to have a driver. 
When the prompt first appears, select "Install from a list or specific location" and click Next. Then,select "Include this location in the file search", click Browse and go to the "Driver (2K_XP_VISTA)" directory inside your BlackcatUSB software folder. Finally, click Next to installthe driver.
How to connect the device to your modem
First, open your modem using by removing the T-10 torq screw at the back of the modem and slicethe sticker on the bottom using a razor blade or knife. The modem will open like a clam shell. For  programming, remove the modem's circuit board from the case.On the modem's circuit board, you will find a 10 pin port (2x5). If you purchased the modem fromus, it will already have a pin header there. If not, you will need to put one in. You can easily solder inthe 10 pin header included with the kit or use the temporary solderless adapter.
 some SB5101boards will have slightly smaller holes which will cause the solderless adapter not to fit; if this is thecase, you will need to solder in the regular pin header.
To communicate your modem with your computer using the BlackcatUSB device, first connect the power adapter to your modem. Your modem will need to have power in order for the device tofunction. Be careful not to allow any foreign metal to make contact to the modem's internal circuit board during this process. You will not need to have the coax cable or Ethernet cable plugged induring this process.The cable always connects to the internal 10-pin port in the same manner, regardless of where thered stripe is on the ribbon cable. After you have it properly connected, run the "BlackcatUSB.exe"from the software release.
If you have done everything right, you should get something similar to the above example. The main page of the software will indicate to you that it has connected to the BlackcatUSB board, the board'sfirmware version, if it has connected to the target device (a.k.a. modem), and what type of Flashmemory was automatically detected.The console tab of the software allows you to execute command-line type commands to interact withyour device. A few popular commands are:
(prints the modem's SIGMA key),
(creates a perfect copy of the flash, recommend for the first time use) and
(attempts to fix amodem where the Flash is not automatically detected). A full list of commands are usually found inthe "Commands.txt" file in the "Scripts" folder of the BlackcatUSB software directory.The memory tab shows you the memory data of the modem. Advanced users will only need to usethis.The Flash tab shows you the non-volatile Flash memory (where the modem's firmware is stored).Here you can read the entire Flash or write to the entire Flash. The entire data is commonly referredto as the modem's BIOS, as not to confuse it with the firmware contained there in.The final tab is created on the fly from the script file. Each time BlackcatUSB connects to a device,it reads its device ID code and then executes the script file of the same code with the ".bsf" extensionin the Scripts directory. You are welcome to create your own scripts for other devices to implementmany of the same features that we offer for the SB5100 or SB5101 devices.
