Read always returns the same defect pixels

I’m trying to use the CCD Defects Reader v0.15 to remap bad pixels for a C-2020 and C-2100 but I can’t get it to work. I did the following (for the 2020):

1) Use the serial cable provided with the C-2020.
2) Run the CCD Defects Reader app.
3) Press Read. It displays the following:

SR954
FIRMWARE: v954-78
S/N: #00000001
Reading the defect pixels.
Elapsed time: 21 sec (100%).
Read 11 defect pixels.
1 175 204
2 353 613
3 410 879
4 566 1003
5 1420 874
6 1341 707
7 884 93
8 1020 1049
9 996 834
10 1439 972
11 224 1143

4) Press Remap. It displays the following:

SR954
FIRMWARE: v954-78
S/N: #00000001
Remapping the defect pixels.
Remap complete. (16 sec)
It's been found 11 defect pixels.

Every time I press Read again, it finds the same 11 defect pixels. I tried turning the camera on / off but its like the pixels are never really remapped. The same happens when I try this for the 2100.

Do you know if I’m doing something wrong or have any ideas? Are these the steps you took? Do you get 0 defect pixels if you do a Read after you Remap?

Thanks,
