CXP3535e install media?

Hi all,

I just got my hand on a cxp3535e, which resembles a cxp3535 but has SATA connectors (amongst other differences). I have the (Windows 2000) installation disks of the CXP3535, but i was wondering if these are the same for the CXP3535E (which i think will be different from the cxp3535, since the harddiskcontroller is really different)?
Also, did anyone got windows XP installed with the Creo Soft running on such a machine? I would love to get my hands on any installation image/disks (Windows XP???) for this one...

Thank you loads for any help regarding this. Just PM me should you prefer it.

Greetings from Belgium,


T.

Hey you!

 

The CXP3535 and the CXP3535E does use the same driver.

Did you have a look in the drivers and download page? if not have a quick check HERE.


Best Regards

Re: CXP3535e install media?

hi Kimzi,
just to make sure: i'm not talking about the PS/PCL-drivers, i'm talking about the IDE/SATA-controller differences between the CXP3535 and CPX3535e.
Can you confirm that we are talking about the same topic?
Thanks!

Hi again!

 

The hardware differences or the software differences?

If its the software differences it's the same according to the xerox page.

Re: CXP3535e install media?

Hi All,

 

Yesterday i took the time to check this out. It seems that my CXP3535(non-e-version) harddisk boots up wonderfully on the CPX3535e, but you need to manually install all the drivers of the P4SCE montherboard via the link: http://www.supermicro.com/products/motherboard/P4/E7210/P4SCE.cfm

also one must install the Adaptec drivers for the SATA controller card, which is needed for the second required harddrive the Creo needs. Once done i needed to empty the imaging disk (this is the second drive, also you need to remove any partitions on it and convert the drive to a Basic disk), then reboot the Creo and let it recreate the imaging disk. Note: then reboot and reformat the drive (i needed to do this at least before the DC3535 would print any testpage).

 

also for anyone's info: yes you can print from windows and mavericks without any issues BUT only indirectly:

1. on the Creo Rip, create a resource printer (read virtual printer) so you get a Hot Folder you can drag your printfile (Postscript, pdf) to and this will magically print it without too much hassle

2. you need to install the PPD-file from the Creo on your computer to maximize the compatibility/features

 

Also i can swap from the Fiery EX3535 to a CPX3535e without any issues, so it seems the DC3535 is compatible with both RIPs and don't need any adjustments (at least not in my testing/case)

 

Another info that could be helpful: both RIP behave fairly the same as far as print quality is concerned. The CREO however has far more options/possibilities and is way more intuitive comparing to the EX3535 (which doesn't have any Hotfolders as the Fiery engine's version is too old and won't support Fierys Hotfolders).

 

Thus: case closed :-)

 

Hope this is helpful to anyone working with an EX3535, CXP3535, CXP3535e or a plain DC3535.
