Hi Mike, sorry I don't know much about the ICD, but I do know that
the 877 takes a couple of minutes to program no matter what programmer
you are using. Nature of flash memory. If you can't select to only
program
some of the memory blocks, try using a 874 this will be twice as quick
providing you can fit the ram etc. I sometimes do this with the app,
or even for testing part of an app. Speeds up the process.

everybody
gets 'em without the right tag.

Just to add to the above, when ever I enable debug mode, the MSSP on the
target no longer works. Is this a known issue? I have an I2C slave that
works (almost) perfectly when I am not using the debugger, but refuses to
acknowedge when the debugger is used.  Looking at the SSPBUF register via
the debugger shows all zero's so it looks as if even the slave address isn't
being clocked in.

I've been using it as a I2C master with no problem
with the ICD.

It is known that care should be taken when doing the above, and reading
SSPBUF clears SSPBUF (and a few bits like BF and SSPOV). Therefore, use the
watch windows to view the file registers you wish to see, and avoid reading
SSPBUF. Instead, break after a command like MOVF SSPBUF,W    and read W.

regards, Kevin

This is an excellent bit of info, thanks Howard.  It would be nice if it
could do debugging over the ICSP cable, but the extra features outweigh that
IMHO.  I have actualy slightly modified the Microchip unit to enable it to
use separate PSU which has helped keep my sanity.  The noise issue is the
biggest gripe I had, so it looks as if Transdada will be making a sale
shortly!

Mike
