    Hi,

    Just got myself a 1700mm Plotter and its offline test seem to work but I cant get any response when i connect it.

    It connects via a serial port (9 pin). My computer has a Serial port listed as COM1. It also came with a serial to USB adapater and im having no luck with either.

    Help!!

    Cheers

    Try the following steps:

    Make sure the plotter is turned on.

    Do a printer detection in Windows (control panels > Printers > Add new printer)

    Hi,

    Yes probably should have said I have tried all that to no avail.

    And yes Plotter is on and plugged in etc

    Cheers

    Does the plotter have some kind of driver disc included?
