In Reply to: win xp to serial driver to qsr HELP!! posted by bill tomlinson on January 26, 2007 at 17:25:13:
Have you accessed the Global setup pages and configured the QSR for serial? See the manual. It needs to be set to 38.4 kbaud and the serial port on the PC should have the same speed setting. Also the PC needs to have the serial port setup as follows: 8 bit, 1 stop bit, no parity, and no handshaking to start with. The Roland serial driver has a setup tab where you can select Com1, 2, etc. and select handshaking mode if desired.
If you're still having problems e-mail me.
