DTP70 colorport Issue

Hey, I’m having an issue with the DTP70. After much futzing, I got it to work on Windows XP, and it was going great for many months, but I just installed Monaco Profiler 4.7 in an effort to try to profile our iPF8400 better (whole other bag of worms), and now the DTP70 rejects the patches. it connects, light is green, insert Piezo 512 patch page, press green button as usual, sucks it in/out as usual, thinks about it for like 5 seconds, then spits it out and the light flashes red. I deleted the DTP in device manager, reinstalled the DTP driver, but issue persists. Walker, could you send me the driver you’re using? any other suggestions? uninstall monaco I guess?


I just use colorport which should be importable to Monaco. TBH it’s been since 2007 that I used Monaco.


I know, I’m using colorport, and thats what was working before, so I don’t get it : / what system are you running the DTP on? could you send me your driver?

Mojave. Update XRD and re-install colorport (most recent version) all from Xrite.


I have not had success updating XRD to the latest version when running colorport. Very much the opposite. To get colorport working on Mojave I needed to start with no XRD installed and then install the last colorport version (2.0.5 iirc) and let it install is needed XRD.

I get sometimes using colorport on mac, seems the DTP70 is fussy when is comes the paper size and how is it fed in.

I have found that reducing the top margin so the patches are closer to the top helps with this issue.

Also make sure it clean in side, use air can.
