Re: Mayka 7 post processor files

Just to get back on this. I managed to locate the appropriate files on an old disc. ATC working now. I think Patrick Thorn sent them to me ages ago. That'll teach me to file things properly.

Re: MDX 540A not connecting to pc

Thanks Patrick, Reinstalled everything as you said but still had a frustrating time getting the computer to communicate with the machine. PC would not recognise the MDX 540 as a printer. Kai Perry at Roland Support sorted it out for me eventually. Still don't really understand what the glitch was ex...

Re: Pixform Pro installation problem

Thanks for that. Apparently Pixform Pro 2 Isn't supported either. I guess we won't be buying that then. I see Patrick Thorn has some new scanning software products on his website. We'll endeavour to persevere !

Re: MDX 540 spindle sensor problems

Thanks Patrick, I shouldn't have asked another question at the end of the post. It probably wouldn't be picked up too quickly. Anyway, the chaps at Roland said they couldn't help because Mayka is not their product, it's made by Picasoft. I emailed Picasoft ,described the problem and they sent 2 post...
