Dear Mikolaj,

We had a similar problem once. Like you, every other time, we got an error and had to restart the computer (Mac). Then we had a noise issue (seems like we blew off something inside the amplifier by using it together with a BIOPAC device). After EGI repaired it, we never had the error again (we never updated the software).
