eMagin Z800 problems

Please can someone help?
My boss has asked for a get his eMagin Z800 to work. He had no software for it, so I went to their website ( and downloaded it.

His Laptop is a Vaio, with an Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, with 2 GB memory and processor speed 533MHz. It runs XP and has a NVIDIA GeForce Go 7400 supporting 128MB.

His computer already had Third Dimension software on it (, which enabled the HMD to be connected and focussed. It also had a 3D media centre which would show exactly what the goggles were looking at. I also found that I could make the goggles act like a second monitor (attached to the side of the laptop screen), or replicate what the laptop's screen showed.

However when I opened any of the software from the 3dvisor website, it would just say that it wasn't connected.

I have noticed that the box that is connected to the headset has only ever had a red light on, never seen an amber or a green light that it says exist in the manual.

Am I doing something wrong? Can someone help?

are you using Vizard with this?

also, did the eMagin HMD work at any time (i.e. show an image in the HMD)?
did you try to feed it the correct resolution of 800x600 with 60Hz?
