It is taking hours for our QMDI to display the job on screen. If we ignore this and just try to image a plate that also takes forever and some parts of the image are missing anyway. Even the colour bars (that the QMDI generates itself) are not imaging fully - some blocks are missing. I feel sure the network connection to the RIP is okay because I set up another PC with a shared BITMAP folder and that was exactly the same. The bitmaps look okay on the RIP and pinging the QMDI gives an instant response (less than 1ms). This all seemed to happen after a BSD on the RIP, but that was showing a sfmatalk.sys error. Any ideas folks?
