The above settings work for my Serial Port 24Cxx, 93Cxx and 25xxx EEPROM Programmer. (http://www.nbglin.com/eeprom.htm)

6) Press the PROBE button. This should probe the EEPROM programmer and automatically configure the settings for your programmer.
7) If the Probe is successful, Press the [OK] button to save the EEPROM configuration.
8) Next, you will need to calibrate the timing functions for you EEPROM programmer. To do this
9) Click (and hold the mouse button) on the SETUP menu.
10) Select Calibration menu item.
The following screen will now be displayed.
