Hi Kent,

try to capture an usb log using a windows os. That should give the
correct gpio setup or setup sequence. At least the 35/50 needs a special
 gpio sequence to get the lamp etc. to work(else it would just reset
itself when trying to directly set the gpio pins..).

Assigning a meaning to a pin then is mostly guesswork, but can be sped
up by searching the pcb for the gpio wires. I could think of making a
single gpio pin continually change its output state and then searching
for it.

I collected some scripts from my efforts in getting the LiDE 35 to work

This one is not linked, but may be useful to you:
it is my stand-alone scanning test program.
