    hello,
    i`m a new guy to the vinyl business here in austin texas and i had a quick question.
    just bought a pnc1100,in graet shape(from the looks of it) can`t get my flexi 6.5 to work with it.
    my question is...do i need a driver or something?
    thanks,
    te

    Yes, you do need a driver or something...

    What operating system are you using (win XP, w98se...?)
    You need a driver from www.rolanddg.com for the operating system you are using, and then the control panel of the plotter needs setting up with the right options selected.

    You'll need a parallel port printer lead, not a serial lead.

    The pin out connections on the roland serial lead have a couple of wires swapped over- I can't remember which ones- but a standard serial lead will not work!

    You'll need the panel set for hgpl language, mode2, free y or rotate Y (if using XP), Free x if using win98se.

    You may also need to rotate the XP to YZ for complete compatability.
    Also, you should have another drink, as I am doing right now..
    I find the downloading to be quite enjoyable.
    Cheers!...Ken
