Roland vista problem

Roland has Parallel socket to connect to. My PC is laptop and so does not have parallel port, I must connect by USB. I have a USB to Parallel port cable to do this but it doesn't seem to work.

Thanks x

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.

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.

I have a Dell A940 connected to my old Dell desktop, which I want to keep. How can I get it to print from my new laptop? I cannot find any USB ports on the printer to connect.


Specs state that it is USB - probably a "USB-B" connector. Anyway, how is it connected to your desktop? Surely you can take the USB lead from the printer out of the back of your desktop and plug it in your laptop? Am I missing something here? Specs don't say it is a "parallel" connector (unless it has both). If it has both (and you are using the parallel connection (big plug with many pins) on your desktop then there should be a USB-B socket on printer next to the big parallel socket.

USB to Parallel connection (Panasonic KX-P1121)


I would recommend buying a Printer parallel port connection (PCI to LTP1), install it into the system, and use the printer parallel cable.

Cannot find vista drivers for my canon bjc-80, any help would be great.


Now that is a tall order. Finding drivers for a bubble jet printer. My best bet is that you'll need to contact the manufacturer of the printer and ask them if any such updates are available.

Vista do however have a large driver database.

Here is a link. Download and try. Do hope this help.

Trying to connect from USB laptop to parallel printer


You can't have a double hook up to it,When the parallel port is used the usb port is disabled and when you use the usb port the parallel port is disable.This is done to prevent damage to the printer.You can network the laptop with the pc and print that way though

You pretty much said it when you mentioned "Other than buying the cable in the first place" I have never successfully used a USB to parallel converter cable on any system. My suggestion, asisde from getting a true USB printer, is a parallel port card

Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port adapter. the USB to parallel adapters are a pain to set up and are flakey at best. The PC card adapter provides a native parallel port to laptops without one, and works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge.

You are correct on your deduction.
It is the USB to Parrallel adpter. They are not reliable in the XP/Vista enviroment. I have run into this several times.

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)!!
