Software Needed

PortTalk
Mad Catz Camera Link Software

*******************************************************

Step 1: First you need to download and install the Madcatz Software (If you don't have the CD).

Step 2: Download the PortTalk .zip file and install it in the directory of the Mad Catz software (C:\Program Files\Mad Catz\Camera Link Software\).

Step 3: You will need to find out your parallel port resource ID. To do this, do the following;

-Right-click My Computer and choose "Manage".
-Find and click "Device Manager" in the System Tools directory.
-Choose "Ports (COM & LPT)".
-Locate the ECP Printer Port (LPT1) and double-click it.
-Click to the resources tab and the first number in the first IO RANGE field is the number you want (for example; 0378 and not 0378-0778).


Step 4: Click Run from the Start Menu.

Step 5: Type CMD in the box and press enter.

Step 6: At the command prompt, locate the Madcatz folder by typing "CD C:\\Program Files\Mad Catz\Camera Link Software\", or wherever it is located.


Step 7: Once you are in the correct directory, type "AllowIO cls.exe 0x378" replacing 0x378 with whatever your IO RANGE number was, with an x after the first digit.

Step 8: Proceed to open the Mad Catz software and follow the instructions.


***one thing this tutorial missed is that you need to drop porttalk.sys into windows\system32\drivers . <-- do this between parts 2 and 3***
