Most likely your Mag-stripe info is missing from the card project in IDworks. If you imported your projects from preface, its likly the box to include mag-stripe config was not transfer d. enter idworks designer and click VIEW then field connections, there should be some info tied you mag-stripe field 1,2, or 3 of not there is the problem.
Next check printer plug ins in IDworks admin to make sure the mag-stripe plugin is installed. Also i would check Datacard.com Download section make sure you have newest and correct driver for your OS if none of this works, uninstall everything (exporting projects) and reinstall.
Mag-strpe encoders can become defective, the encoder may need to be replaced.
No mag encoder means you're trying to send encoding data to the printer but the printer isn't configured with an encoder. A mag encoder writes data to the magnetic stripe you see on the back of some cards, like credit cards. Most likely, the printer doesn't have an encoder installed, but if it does, it may be turned off in the printer settings.
If you're sure that it does have an encoder, you can check/change the setting by going into the menu on the printer. Go to Menu -> Setup Printer -> Change Parameter -> Encoder Settings -> Mag. It will say none or installed. Note that this can be changed to one or the other whether or not the encoder is physically installed or not. This only turns it on if the encoder is there.
Hope this helps.
