I just installed a moschip 9865 parallel card ...the computer tags it as lpt-3.. I changed it to lpt-1. My problem at the moment is the address is both D010-D007 and D000-D007..(on any lpt I choose)I don't know the & or H code or where to put them in my program. I am driving a mydiycnc which works fine on another machine with the built in port with the standard address range. Oh what shall I do? much thanks jim
it looks like its an auto addressing card. if your motherboard has a parallel port on it, try disableing it in the bios then reboot the computer. then goto device manager and if the card is there at the wrong port, remover the parallel port from device manager then get device manager to "hunt for new hardware. it may reassign it to the " standard " port address. if not.. I would sugjets that you go digging around for an older PCI parallel card with jumpers on it that you can set the address. we have a couple of computer recyclers nearby that I always look for stuff like that.
