    Hey, I recently acquired a Roland sc540 Printer, but the RIP software that was bundled with the machine "Color Rip" was not included in this. As far as I know the rip was bundled with the machine on it's release. If anyone knows where that can be downloaded or have a copy they can send me it would be appreciated.

    Doesnt work that way. RIP software (most) only work with a key, who ever has the key, owns the software. I have a couple of differant RIP's I could send you "copys" of, but none of them would work.

    As far as I know, there is a copy without a serial no. or a dongle that actually activates by using the serial no. on your machine for authentication purposes. Thanks for your reply though.

    If it can use versaworks, use that instead of colorrip.
    Any roland dealer should supply you with a copy for free(maybe charge postage), as it only works with roland printers.

    And Versaworks doesn't just work with any Roland printer. Chances are that he needs colorrip.

    exampe: SP-300 is Colorrip, SP-300V is Versaworks. Unless hacked, the SP-300 won't work with versaworks.
     
  13. One other important think to keep in mind.

    I have an SP-300 that was New in late 2004 and it works perfectly and I really love this printer.

    When I upgraded my computer system I ran into one problem and that was I have always used ColorRip software and have never had any issues with it but there are no updated drivers that I could find that work either Windows 7 or 8

    I simply installed an A-B switch from my New computer with Windows 7 and my old computer which is running XP

    For anyone using ColorRip thinking about upgrading their computer do not get rid of your old computer unless you are changing your Rip or can find updated drivers that will work.

    My SP-300 is so easy to take care of and run that I have resisted the temptation to upgrade to a newer model.

    Colorip and Windows 7/8

    One of my printers is a Roland FJ-540 which, of course, uses Colorip. I am using version 2.2 and have no problems running under either Windows 7 or 8. If you are not using ver 2.2, maybe the upgrade will allow you to get rid of that old XP computer.

    I am using ColorRip 2.2 now.

    You think this will work with Windows 7

    You know come to think of it I don't remember trying it first!!!!

    Once I realized there were no updated drivers for ColorRip and Windows 7 I simply started thinking of other ways to make it work.

    So you download the ColorRip into a Windows 7 computer and it worked?

    Thanks for the tip.

    I can confirm, Versaworks will not work with an SC540. I believe it has something to do with the fact that the SC540 has a different print head order, starting with black.

    ColorRIP or a 3rd Party Rip such as Onyx.
