Maybe you did not install it properly.try this turn off your cutter. plug the cable to you pc. make sure your pc is on. then turn on your cutter. then windows vista will detect new hardware then continue installation make sure you point to the correct folder. then you will see in the taskbar that says installed new hardware and ready in use. please install also the software bundled with the cutter. or if it support corel draw you can start designing and make sure that you put an outline on the object. example letter "t" put an outline on letter "t" and try plotting it. maybe this will help.

DETAILS DONT SPECIFY WHERE TO CONNECT PRINTER- APEX AX3400G-U4802 computer


As this doesn't machine doesn't have a Parallel Port the only way to connect a Printer is via the USB.

If you've only got a printer with Parallel connection you need to get a Parallel to USB Adapter.

There are 2 types of Adapter depending on what type of connection your Printer has (examples at links below).

http://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-SBT-UPPC-Parallel-6-Foot-Printer/dp/B0007UVRVO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310762929&sr=8-1

These are just examples to show you the 2 types and cheaper options are available.

Which jack do i plug the printer jack into to get connect to my computer


Hi!

It depends on your printer... If it has a USB connection, use a USB cable and connect it to any free USB port on the rare side of your computer.
If it has only a Parallel connection, use a Parallel cable instead...

Exactly which port do you plug the printer into on this dell xps 410 ???


It depends on the kind of connection the printer has. Most newer printers will have a USB connection. You can plug your printer into any open USB port on the computer. Some older printers will have a parallel connection (which looks wide and narrow). Your computer will have to have a parallel port for you to be able to use your printer.

Good luck.

Hi my HP scan jet 3400c cannot turn on. what is a problem.


The scanner have two ports to connect to PC, USB and Parallel.

It has no Power switch.

Disconnect all cables from your scanner (USB/Parallel and power.

Plug power cable to the scanner, and then plug the power supply to an outlet.

Does it turn on ?

If not, than check the power adaptor.

If it turns on, then turn off your computer, plug the USB/Paralel connector to the scanner and to your PC and turn on your PC.

You should know that you can use only one connection for your scanner at a time, USB OR Parallel.
Parallel for under Windows98, and USB for Win98 and above.

Regards.

Parallel dongle will not work with new system that only has USB connections


The dongle only works with a standard parallel port, not a USB parallel port adapter, It may be possible that a PCI parallel adapter card will work with the dongle. Check it first with the supplier and or software supplier of Designer 1.

Vista 64 bit OS says I must get a driver with a digital signature to install USB to DB25 parallel cable. The driver on the disc which came with the cable was not accepted by Vista.


1. Get a new signed driver from the adapter manufacturer.
2. Try the workarounds listed here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/08/15/workaround-for-vista-cannot-load-low-level-driver-signing-issue/

For what it is worth, I generally found USB to parallel adapters worthless as most printers will not work with the adapter. Usually easier to get a new printer. If a desktop, get a parallel port expansion card.

I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 cutting machine that has a parallel connection. I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Windows Vista OS. I have a USB to Parallel cable to connect the two. I have...


connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!
