Hi Kareem,

You can test if the DATAQ is working correctly with it's software by
connecting a 1.5 volt battery to the input of one of the channels.
You should see the trace deflect from 0 to either +1.5 or -1.5 depending
on the polarity of the connection.

Once you know that the DATAQ is working correctly, then connect the
aux signal out and ground wires.  You may need to increase the
sensitivity of the DATAQ software (I think the PgUP key does this).
When the pen moves on the PS2 you should see some indication on
the computer screen.  If not, then the aux signal out must be
disconnected or the gain is set too low.
