BQ34Z100-G1: bqStudio Intermittent Erroneous Data

Part Number: BQ34Z100-G1

I am seeing intermittent erroneous data from the BQ34Z100-G1 evaluation board using the EV2300.  I'm not certain if why the data is being reported this way, perhaps there is a communication issue?  See the attached .WMV file (about 12 seconds in).

Sometimes I will see a message "No acknowledge from device." but not every time.  I see data from all of the status register and register bits jump all over the place.  I see this with two different versions of bqStudio and I've seen this on two different Windows 7 computers and on my Windows XP virtual machine.  I have also had this problem with bqStudio v1.3.63.  Thoughts?

Setup information:

TI BQ34Z100-G1
BQ34Z100EVM for evaluation (FW version 0100_0_16 build 17)
bqStudio v1.3.54 software
EV2300 (version 3.1c) using I2C protocol
Windows XP SP3 virtual machineClick here to play this video
