    ECRM RIP 8.3 with FujiFilm PI 1400 aka ECRM VR36HS

    I have problem with this machine when trying to communicate with the PC. The PC has ECRM RIP 8.3 installed, Adaptec SCSI 29160 controller that identifies ECRM imagesetter as ECRM_Pelbox device.

    SCSI initialization was good though not until I enabled BIOS under my SCSI controller, before that ECRM imagesetter was invisible.

    I really have no further solutions to this issue. Is there a way or possibility to run this machine connected to the PC system with this particular controller?

    For the connection between Adaptec 29160 SCSI and PC I use SCSI3 male to Centronix male cable. Cable is not more then 3 meters in length.

    Desactive the device in hardware manager

    Go to hardware manager in windos sistem and desactive this generic scsi printer and restart the pc, in the next start the scsi bios detect the device, but wen star the sysntem this put inactive, and rip can detect this memory adress.

    I recomended use windows 2003 or windows 2000 only 32 bit version

    So, if i did understand you well, you were suggesting me to disable SCSI BIOS so the ECRM could acquire memory address? That was my default setting before i turned the SCSI BIOS mode on. When the BIOS was set it at the off state, the ECRM was completely invisible to the computer in the Device Manager.

    I will try to post a log from ECRM RIP 8.3 at the forum, so it would be easier to notice and detect the problem.

    Thank you for your kind and swift reply ChristianSTG.

    NO

    The Scsi bios need have ON, you need to deactivate the Scsi printer in hardware manager, only for windows not use the adress memory of printer and in this mode the Rip can be see the printer in scsi bus.

    I tried that, but unfortunately problem still exists. I disabled the ScsiPelbox in the device manager and when I start RIP, upon initialization i receive SerialWriteError{ID}.

    Can you tell me anything about SCSI setup for the ECRM VR36? Transfer speed, multiple LUN bios, etc. There are a lot of options in SCSI BIOS.

    Also, I am using AppleTalk as an input controller inside of the RIP. Thank you once again ChristianSTG

    Done! I had to burn the EPROMs Now it works! Only thing left is to find appropriate page setup and calibrations for the machine itself.

    I have the same problem.
    The EPROM that you have changed are those of pelbox ?
    I have said that to use the rip version 9 you have to have the Eprom v. 1.11
    The you can share ?
