Can you change it to EPP?

I can't find anywhere in the CMOS to change to EPP. This is getting to be a serious pain in the ass. I guess tomorrow I'll take it in and see if the experts can fix it. I'll also change out the RAM in my old PC and see if that makes a difference.

You wont find it in the BIOS if its a PCI card, Your only options may be in the device manager or possibly a jumper on the card itself.

Thats it for sure, Mach will not run under 64bit versions unless you are using an external pulsing device such as SmoothStepper, DSPMC, Galil etc etc.

Wow, can't believe it took me this long to catch that. Hopefully I can get X loaded and see if we can make some progress today. I'll keep you posted.

Well I couldn't get my version of XP to load. I went out and got a used PC and I'm back at making chips. This PC is running XP, one thing I noticed and I also noticed this on my other PC with XP is that when you load a program into Mach the Reset button doesn't flash. It did when running under Vista. Is this normal?
