You can use standart driver (from windows installation), wich support HP PCL 5 or Adobe PostScript Level 1 ( HP LaserJet III).

Use Linotronic 300 V47.1 (standard Windows driver) - this used to work for the CI300's on Windows 98, I have never used a CI300 on a newer system (have 3 in a box).

Thanks the linotronic works, very slow though. Is there any way that PDF's can be printed?

I will research and get back to you.

The SC3000 and SC3500 series (also WYSIWYG - ie: uses the computer for file conversion, no hard drive in the SC / CI) will print PDF files without many major problems. I thought the CI300 would also, unfortunately the CI300 was RISO's first trip into RISO/computer connectivity world and developed for a WIN 95 computer and 16 Bit addressing - I have never experimented with this device on operating system newer to see it's capabilities.

You don't happen to have sc3000 or sc3500 for sale. Can the later sc's work on GR1750? Thanks for all your help

I'll check and see, if I don't there is a good chance that an affiliate company Southern Duplicating Systems may - Southern Duplicating Systems - DUPLO and RISO Products, Sales, Supplies, Rentals and Leases (http://callsds.com).

I'll need to see if the options card (board) and connectivity kit used on the CI300 is compatible with the SC series systems. All SC units through the SC7700 are compatible with the GR / FR lines. The SC5500, SC7500 (garbage), and SC7700 have a hard drive that runs postscript (printing is done from the SC, not the computer).

Thanks for all your help. I have managed to work somthing out. I print my PDF's out on my laser, than scan them at 400dpi (b/w) and save them as a tiff. Place them in Publisher 2003 and then print out to Riso using linotronic driver. need to change graphic print quality in driver to 635dpi.. I'm printing full A4 tiffs thru publisher and the longest one so far is about 15mins. So it is possible to print to Riso using Windows XP Pro. Can't use Indesign as it only works with Postscript level2 and up. I have only been able to use Publisher ro print as Pagemaker doesnt work properly in XP.. I never thought I'd ever say it but Publisher is actually doing something good. I still would like to upgrade the ci300, to make things a lot easier.

There is a RISO software called CS2000 that is used for file conversion and color seperation. I have had alot of success using it not for the color separation but to convert files to a format the RISO's (WYSIWYG) like.

I will see if I have a copy of CS2000 to send - I may have to break it up into several files using WinRAR or other compression software, or upload it to my download site.

I have managed to get a copy of CS2000. Not having much luck with tho. Every time I try to open a print file in the program it comes up with "There is an error in the file at BYTE #1" doesn't matter what print driver I use it always comes up with that error. You ever seen that b4. thanks

I have never run into that problem, what operating system are you using?

I am going to upload an ISO image file to my website but if you have access to Nero, go to http://salesoutpro.com/CS2000/CS-2000.nrg for a Nero image file. I will convert to an ISO sometime this weekend and make it available.

I have run CS-2000 at PakMail in Commerce Georgia on XP Pro and have never had this problem. I wonder if the issue has something to do with the CI300... never tried CS-2000 with that controller.

OK, I know where the problem is (I just tried it myself here on my equipment). The document that you want to open using CS-2000 must be saved as a .prn file for CS to open it. If you need instructions on how to create a PRN, let me know.

Sorry about that!

I presume that I open the file in original program and print to file. I have used the linotronic print diver to make the file and the files are a .prn file

That is correct, unfortunately I have been playing around with it here in the office can only get CS-2000 to open PRN's created with an actual RISO print driver, not a generic.

Let me experiment with this and get back to you.

Sorry for the mis-information and confusion.

CS-2000 doesn’t support PostScript printers like CI300 or linotronic.
CS-2000 used only with GDI RISO interfaces with RisoRinc language.

Hello, i've downloaded the software, but it asks me the serial number. Can anybody give me the serial? I'd like to try the software before to buy it, as i need to be sure it works with my risograph. thanks
