Problem Connecting Sc500 To Laptop Via Parallel To Usb Cable

Post by Red/Black86 » Thu Mar 02, 2017 7:07 pm

hi guys im currently using my sc500 with the old lpt port parallel cable to an old xp laptop using flexi 8.6.

now this laptop is old and slow and i would like to use the printer with my newer laptop.

i bought a parallel to usb cable to connect everything up but for some reason i cant get it to work.

new laptop is running windows 10 pro.

the cable adapter i bought was from ebay.

when i checked the IEEE-1284 contoller hardware properties, i can see that it says "device not migrated", also in the device manager it says "no printer attached"

would anyone have any suggestions as to how i would get it to work.

do i need an sc500 driver?

also when i send the file to print in flexi it will rip and go to print and wake the printer up but thats it.

hope someone can help.

cheers

Ken

Have you tried Roland ColorChoice of just copying the print file to the port?
