I am new to this forum and am looking for a bit of help in running a stepper motor from my parallel port.
Currently i have a parallel port breakout board, then the stepper motor drive (and a power supply), connected to the motor.
I have written a simple loop in VB saying set pin 3 on then off, this works ok (the stepper drive requires a pulse to turn the motor around one step), BUT VB is taking its time in sending the pulses out of the parallel port.
This is why i am trying here as you guys know what you are talking about with steppers and programming them.
Dose anyone have any ideas, i have searched the net for hours but to no luck.
Cheers for your help in advance.
