    First I want to thank the community for all the helpful info. I refurbished my falcon jr and its running perfect just by reading the forum. So thanks everyone!

    I just got a used rolandfj52 converted. Changed everything to brand new. And im using colorchoice rip.

    I cannot print anything. Tried using parallel cable to usb and it "cannot open port"

    Just bought a printserver with crossover cable directly connected to computer and printer and still get nothing. colorchoice hangs on printing 0%. I know im not doing something right.

    Funny thing is I connected the falcon jr with a printserver but had a great tutorial to walk me thru it and it worked like a charm.

    Anybody with kind advice, tutorial, would be greatly appreciated.
