maybe that's where the aType came from originaly

yould you try to use my patch, and just force the initialisation code to
be executed in any way.
Maybe than the 2nd line will work.

I suspect that you
- need the 3/4th line initiaisation stuff
- your memmory is mapped: 0x00 ... 0x31 ( == 39)
0x40 ... 0x71
If that's treue, I'll try to get a patch to do some propper
initialisation, but I've too much day work and try to get my EzUSB to
work as a LCD controller (for LCDproc).
