    Unhappy sending data to printer port

    guys,
    i need help..
    here is my problem.

    i have a protoype that is connected to my printer port,
    the prototype is driven by steper motor and how in this
    world will i move the motor? we have constructed the circuit
    so that when we connect the two wires, the motor moves to
    a counter clockwise position, its fine. but i want it to be done
    programatically. i mean, i want my computer to do the switching
    for me... is it possible? please..... i need help very bad....



    thnx...

    Hey Klausi, Microsoft actually has a hardware support division. They make hardware in the form of keyboards/mice/joysticks/game voice/xbox/etc. (Your tag line.)

    Yes, I know, but if the computer crashes, itīs normally not the Microsoft-hardware, itīs the Microsoft-OS!
    So the Microsoft hardware division canīt do something.
