There seems to be some issues with the USB port included on recent Digitrax Command Stations, such as the DC52 (Zephyr Express), DCS210/DCS210+ and DCS240/DCS240+.

Connections to JMRI and other software packages running on an external computer may be interrupted.

Using a Digitrax PR3 or PR4 or a RR-Cirkits LocoBuffer-USB LocoNet interface is reportedly more stable than the internal PR4 built into the command station.

Command Station has Locked Up

If the command station has locked up, the recommended solution is to disconnect both the power and USB cable, then wait at least thirty seconds.

After the time has elasped reconnect the power and USB cables.
