1) I'd like to go direct to the parallel port on my laptop - it seems both the flash port and my parallel port have holes for screw ins that block each other and prevent the pins getting deep enough (No X2Pro Found message when I hold it close as possible). How exactly is everyone accomplishing this so easily?
2) I have a M/F parallel cable. I can detect the chip when set to ECP but I get "Manuf Code 00 Device Code 00" - I guess this is detection but something wrong as it's not 01 D5. The tutorial says one of my dip switches is likely on but this is absolutely not the case. My cable might be too long for this (4') but I'd like to clear up the odd detection message.
Any pointers out there? Would like to just connect direct to laptop. Anyone see any glaring issues or something I'm missing?
Thanks in advance!
