Question about Parallel Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

I am tearing my hair out trying to get any output from any of the software I have (sign cut, corel x5, easy cut, cut studio etc) from my Roland Camm1 cm 24. I can do the test cut from the cutter which works perfectly. I have a parallel to USB connector and I have tried going through all the various ports to try to get something from the software to the cutter but so far no luck. I have no idea what comm and LTPs are so an idiots guide would be really helpful. I have the manual for the cutter but this is not helpful in setting up drivers etc.

The problem is more likely the operating system compatibility with old kit.if you are running something like 64bit windows 7 then the best solution is to have a dual operating system and install windows Xp.there may be updated drivers some where internet
wise.or you could try running in compatibility mode.
lpt and comm refer to older machines with serial port and parallel ports.if you do use USB you are better off using the rear ones as opposed to front end as they connect direct to motherboard.
if you have already tried go to the Roland site and see what support downloads can offer for system compatibility.otherwise you may find a forum via search engines with a driver.until then your machine will not communicate properly with you computer setup.also right click the executable for the software in its own folder and see if you can choose compatibility mode .best will be windows 2000 or Xp.

Testimonial: "I am running XP on an older laptop and the USB ports are on either side of the laptop. I have downloaded the correct driver and installed it to the comm 3 and pointing everything at comm 3 but its not doing anything. I realise the cutter is a really old model now but the test cut from the cutter is really good so am trying to persevere in the hope I can get it to work from the laptop. I also have an old pc base unit that I got with the cutter but haven't got a comparable mouse, keyboard etc to run anything from it. The parallel to USB connector came with the cutter. I am at a loss."

    Some other things you could try...go into hardware windows key plus pause break....whilst the machine is connected..uninstall it from the drop down menu of device manager.then rescan.sometimes comm conflicts happens.i would also uninstall all the USB ports in device manager too then rescan.if still no luck the problem could be the USB cable is older than USB 2 and causing miscommunication.

    If you want a compatible mouse and keyboard I could post one out to you or you could get from eBay.

    Thanks John I will try that tomorrow. I thought about getting an older keyboard and mouse from eBay as I think it will be worth the small outlay to try to get the cutter sorted,From what I have read everything points to me not doing something correctly re the drivers so I will sleep on it and try again tomorrow.

I can't find the serial number on my Corel Draw Home & StudentSuite X5 - it's not on the inside of the booklet.

Was the software bought sealed? If so, try inside the CD case, sometimes it could in the box with the other papers. If not, go back to the store and exchange it.

I opened up my corel draw x4 and the some icons were grayed out and some options were grayed out in the pull down menus. so the way it looks its like i cant cut / copy / print / export or save so i cant...

Unfortunately, this is a known issue for Corel Draw X4. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the software which can probably resolve the issue.

On the other hand, I suggest that you download Corel Draw X5 instead that is far better than this version.
