You could use triggers in innovative ways. Maybe trigger on that particular
data on that particular address. What takes place just before this? Is it
DMA or is it the CPU moving the data. Is it just reading out bad or is it
written bad?  That should be possible to figure out. You will probably get
quite far with only 16 data and 16 address bits (if you have the smallest
analyzer). Of course more is better...
