Hi, I'm having trouble getting set up for the Pump Download. I installed the EzManager software, and plugged the IR wireless interface in and set the pump on Suspend while disconnected from my body. I've followed all of the steps but when it comes to scanning the program (ezmanager) says they can't find the pump. Arrrrg! LOL, any ideas or suggestions?

I'm having the same issue. I hope someone can provide a suggestion. I'm using a Mac.
glad I'm not alone, but yes hopefully we can get an answer. If not today then tomorrow 8:00-8:00 EST You know I'll be calling ext 2400 for some tech support :)
I installed it and ran it on my Mac no problems at all. There was a new step where you have to click on a separate install program to install the drivers for the thing you need to point at the pump. (I just received my pump and software, so this might be new) I just clicked on Scan all ports and it worked fine for me. I'm even using the latest OS 10.6.8

Hope this helps you!
you have to make sure the pump doesn't fall asleep (screen goes black) or else it messes it all up.

What I do is keep pressing buttons while its scans. Now that I know what port my pump is on, I usually select that port, instead of scan all ports in the drop down menu
how do you find out what port your pump is on?
Make sure the IR port on the pump is lined up with the receiver. You should see the receiver blink when it is. I actually prefer Diasend, have you tried that instead of EZManager?
I also use the Diasend website to upload my pump. My doc's office can see my information when they want to. She knows I upload my pump every Sunday night. I never could figure out EZManager.
wow thanks for the info on Diasend, I just set it up and was surprised at all the information it holds. WOW I've never seen my insulin, carbs, blood sugars etc... graphed out like that before. I'll have to make sure I'm being good, since my Diabetes Team can view it now LOL.
DON'T "scan" for ports. Choose (click on) the highest port number you see from the drop down list when you click on the two headed arrow next to "scan all ports". Then, as others have suggested, make sure your pump is suspended, and "awake" before you click the "start" button to begin the download.
This is the dumbest interface I have ever encountered. The rep gave me a holder that keeps the device properly aligned. It improved things a lot but still I have problems with it. Very bad design!
The most important thing to do is NOT LET IT GO TO SLEEP, otherwise you will have to restart the download...
I believe the Animas pump is the best on the market today, but the fact that we need to use IR I/O technology is REALLY too antiquated for today's users. Animas NEEDS to come into the 21 century and use wireless (either bluetooth or ANT) to make it simpler to move our data!
