    I dont think you will find it at the graphtec web site the driver will come from flexi so I would check thier web site it should be downloadable from there
    if not call thier tech line and you will get it that way// chopper

    did you try rebooting your pc after installing the drivers? that might help.

    The FC7000 wasn't supported until Flexi 7.6, that's why there's no driver. Just use the FC5000, if memory serves. If not that one then one of the others. Know that unless you upgrade to Flexi7.6V2 the media size polling won't work on roll media. It'll return the proper numbers divided by 10.

    yea I think it works but it will not detect registration marks with that driver which isn't a huge deal at the moment... guess I am going to have to buy flexi 8

    O well it came with some software that opens the flexi production manager from illustrator (cutting master 2.1) if the 5100 driver doesn't work i can at least use that for now...


    Thanks guys I will call flexi in the morning
