hello,
i`m a new guy to the vinyl business here in austin texas and i had a quick question.
just bought a pnc1100,in graet shape(from the looks of it) can`t get my flexi 6.5 to work with it.
my question is...do i need a driver or something?
thanks,
te
 
Yes, you do need a driver or something...

What operating system are you using (win XP, w98se...?)
You need a driver from www.rolanddg.com for the operating system you are using, and then the control panel of the plotter needs setting up with the right options selected.

You'll need a parallel port printer lead, not a serial lead.

thanks ian, couldn`t figure out why i wasn`t connected, and of course i have the serial lead.
that helped alot.
thanks again
 
The pin out connections on the roland serial lead have a couple of wires swapped over- I can't remember which ones- but a standard serial lead will not work!

You'll need the panel set for hgpl language, mode2, free y or rotate Y (if using XP), Free x if using win98se.

You may also need to rotate the XP to YZ for complete compatability.
Also, you should have another drink, as I am doing right now..
I find the downloading to be quite enjoyable.
Cheers!...Ken
