Old plotter, no "found new hardware" message.
« on: September 25, 2009, 07:21:14 PM »
I have a really neat old plotter, a Newing Hall Accutrac 439. When I connect it to a computer, I get no "found new hardware" message. The plotter is turned on, and will do a nice demo plot. So I know it has some capability. Not sure how to test the serial port on the peripheral, or what to do. Thanks for any help,

Jim.
