pop the chip in and read it with the programming software. save to file.

I have a top853 and have done this regularly. are you having trouble with something specific?

I know from experience that parallel port programmers hardly ever work with newer PCs. I was always fighting my old Willem on the computer I had when I bought it, and could never get it to work after I upgraded my PC. Had to buy an USB EPROM programmer eventually.

Assuming you can get the computer to recognize and communicate with the programmer, the software should have an option to read memory chips.

I have to run an XP virtual machine when I want to use my USB TOP853. (At least, I've never found any software for it that runs on Windows 7.)
