Thread: Parallel ports problems
it may still have the same prob as I/o are automatic. I'm going to try to update the graphics and see what happens. Then put win pc on and see wot happens! Ps im on 32 bit vista at the mo. But if I change some cad stuff won't work on workshop computer
f me wrote this twice timen out and wouldn't copy. STOOPID program
Don't bother changing to 64bit OS because Mach3 PP driver won't work with it. 32bit only.
Do your self a favor and don't waste any money buying PP card just save then money and put towards motion control card.
When you do get the card working find the i/o address in resource manager and then in mach make sure you enter 0X(Zero) then address.

Dean - if you want a laugh - I was using the continuity test buzzer on my multimeter and getting annoyed that I couldn't find continuity on circuits I thought were OK. Then I realised that my multimeter had auto shut down.
If you want another laugh - I am replacing a BoB, when I have a CSMIO IP-S new in a box on the shelf (destined for a better machine than this MD THING.
Me too....spent ages trying to work out why the relay wasn't closing the contacts....

omg you thickooos.......and me, oops
even if I could find one which will work with this computer, itt is 8 years old and may go pop! If it did I'd be in exactly the same situation again with a new computer!
So waiting now for the motion controller to arrive- it's a lot of money for what is basically a dongle but I could have bought quite a number of lpt cards in the mean time im making the covers for the steppers!
