    Hello all, New to this great site...

    I use CS5 and VersaWorks with a Roland 540EX model...with 6 colors (C,M,Y,K, Lt. C, Lt. M)
    I use to run a Roland 540SP with just the 4 colors (C,M,Y,K).

    When I bring up my old files the colors are way off??

    Some are in RGB and others in CMYK??

    And the greys are like a GREEN..???

    I have done print samples of greys and I can't get then a good grey.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Do a search, this has been discussed may times! Hope you understand color management and profiling. Good luck.

    Are you using the Roland Color Palette System? If not, you should.

    Is this correct???
    In Illustrator the palette says "Roland Color System Library" is this the one I need??
    It takes away the CMYK bars and it only has 1 bar for the color.....
    Thanks

    I suppose. The Roland color codes are like "RVW-PR26K"

    Added: You must also print off the entire palette in order to know how it prints on your particular media, and to have a reference.
