Issue Details

I am using a PCI NI-XNET device and I can detect the device in NI MAX. I am encountering error -1074384710 when opening a Frame In Stream Session in LabVIEW or when starting NI-XNET Bus Monitor.

Possible reason(s):
NI-XNET:  (Hex 0xBFF630BA) The NI-XNET driver timed out when performing low-level communication with the device. This could occur if the device was removed, communication with its parent chassis failed, or a general hardware failure occurred.

Solution

  • Upgrade the NI-XNET driver to the latest compatible version.
  • The PCI card should be connected to a native PCI port. A bridge PCI port should not be used.
  • Remove all other PCI cards if you are using multiple PCI cards in the same desktop or industrial PC. It could be due to the limitation of the power supply.
  • Increase the PCI Timeout time in BIOS. You might need to refer to the user manual of the desktop for the steps.
