Any time, I'm on here most weekdays and answer whatever I can.
And I am decently old school so I actually worked with the DC250 and all of it's RIPS "back in the day"

I have another question for you and thank you in advance!
The person who owned the creo/printer before me never delated any jobs out of the storage window. Recently, out of the blue, all of the jobs in the storage disappeared. This is fine by me because the creo needs the space. I believe the underlying jobs are still in the computer and would like to delete them. Do you know what the extension would be and where they would be stored? Thanks, Mike

There is a tool to do it, jobs are encrypted for securtity reasons so you can't find them (hidden)
At the Creo go to Start > CXxxx > CXxxx Tools > Format image Disks > OK > OK > Yes > OK
Directions are taken from a DC260, so wording may be slightly changed, but the end-game is the same, if the jobs were correupted, you may have to boot Windows into Safe Mode , but only do that if it won't work without doing it.

I'm always a little concerned that the creo is going to go out on me and I want to be prepared for the worst.
I'm thinking of buying this,
Would I need a CD or anything or could i just plug in. Any thoughts?
Also, I always want to press "accept solution" but don't see what you are referring to.

Theoretically you could just plug it in, but...
It runs Windows, anything goes wrong and you don't have the installation media and you are in a bad way, the installation media is also far from cheap, it contains the Fiery software as well as Windows XP and all associated licenses, possibly Adobe Acrobat (If it has the Impose/Compose options.
I don't want you thinking "Joe said this would work", so I want to be clear, while it may work, it just as likely won't, and if anything goes wrong and you don't have the CD's to rebuild it, you likely won't be able to get them anywhere, definitely not free. And it is a very old PC, things will die, and Windows XP is really not secure in today's world, so if it runs, make sure it is not able to reach the Internet.
