DataStudio Update

Note: After 12 years as the premier data acquisition, display and analysis software for high school and university science, DataStudio has been superseded by a powerful, totally new software package—PASCO Capstone. With its new features this software will make your existing PASCO USB interfaces even more useful and will take advantage of the capabilities of the new 850 Universal Interface.

DataStudio will no longer be updated and new customers should consider PASCO Capstone or SPARKvue software depending on their needs.

Updating GLX Firmware

Installing updates may delete files saved in the RAM and Flash folders of the GLX. Transfer stored files to your computer before upgrading the GLX. (See GLX manual for more info.)

Updating from a Computer - Once the update is on your computer, connect the GLX to the USB port and run DataStudio. When DataStudio detects a GLX running an older firmware version, it will give the option of upgrading that GLX.

Updating from a USB Flash Drive - Connect the USB flash drive containing the update to the GLX’s USB port. Open the Data Files screen. Press to open the Files menu and select Upgrade GLX Firmware.
