Hi denis,

"Access denied, unable to connect"

Hi Roland

I recently had the same horrible nightmare ;)

Please do not ask meabout any raesons but try the following:

Change the permissions of the driver-files on your windows-system.
Remove any write protection. Then try to upload again.

Good luck!
