Re: EXTERNAL COLORADO 5G AND WIN ME

Hi Jeremy
I would update the parallel port driver from shuttletech.com firstly. Secondly the parallel port settings would need to be verified - in the system BIOS check the following:

Set port mode to EPP
DMA shoudl be 03
I/O should be 0378

Should be seen by now - Win ME being plug and play should find it anyhow - best bet would be the driver from shuttletech.com

thanks

After-thought ..

It should be on LPT1 with no other devices connected :)

Thanks

Thanks mate. Just after this HP re-released several versions of Colorado Backup II. Definetely the external epat drivers are needed and as soon as they are installed the drive is found. Thanks for your help anyway.
