pci parallel port drivers
« on: February 04, 2015, 06:33:39 PM »
My pc refused to boot up, has been replaced. Very annoying. I was running 2 parallel ports, built in and a moschip  MCS9865 pci card one. I have the driver cd for it, but having run every instance of setup on the CD, I still get 'no drivers installed' in device manager under 'pci parallel port'. This despite the fact that it worked fine on the old pc.

Is anyone else using one? What drivers should I use for 32 bit xp? So many on the cd, none work so far.

Thanks.

Ok, found drivers (http://www.drivers-download.com/en/downloadlist.php?id=162), installed successfully, it now calls itself an 'EPC' port in device manager now; that doesnt sound familiar, is EPC good or bad for Mach?

Also, its input range starts at 8400; would this be a valid port address, or does it need a prefix? I seem to remember oX or something from my previous machine.

Having fired up the machine, I find that it works with mach on the new machine, so I maybe don't need to know too much about mach and Epc/epp now...
