Computer says no contact with machine have tried everything
Youn don't say what Windows flavor you're using, or whether you have a serial port or not. I'm going to guess you have a laptop with Vista on it, and the laptop has no serial port for you to connect the 7570's cable.
You need to get either a serial to USB cable that works with the 7570 (read some of the posts in this section. There's at least two or three that do), or another device called a Port Replicator, that has the serial port as well as a parallel port for printing, and perhaps one or two USB ports.
In my case, I have two of the latter ones, the Targus PA090U and the PA075U, and both need no drivers with Vista and work OK. They simply get recognized when you plug them into a USB port and are available to you, except that in my case, the serial port always defaults to COM port 4.
The other reason why you may not be getting a connection may be found in your Machine Configuration, in PCD_WIN. In version 2.0, which is the one I have, go to the Machine menu option, and at the bottom, click on Configuration.
Here make sure the COM port is the correct number, and then set the speed to LOW. That works for me.
