Self-extracting archive will let you make a new driver disk

Check printer port mode, address and interrupt number before installing the new driver:
You need to set your printer port mode to "SPP", "standard", "compatible" or "unidirectional". Avoid modes called "EPP", "ECP" or "bidirectional". This setting is done in the computer's BIOS Setup (not in windows). When the computer is turned on, you should see a brief message such as "press F2 to enter setup": press that key and look for your printer port or LPT settings; you should be able to choose the mode, the address (probably 378) and IRQ number (probably 7). You will need these values during the Midiator driver installation. If you cannot enter the setup menu consult your computer's manual.
