Recently our CIP3 hard drive lost it's reboot capability. We've gotten that situation taken care of. Most of our equipment is legacy, meaning old, and the CIP3 computer had been operating through the NT operating system. We upgraded the CIP3's operating system to XP. So our problem now is we use a Harlequin Rip v5.1 networked to a DPX plate processor utilizing the CIP3 to achieve ink settings for an Hamada B452A. Graphic Micro Systems informs us that the file names are incorrect. We use a pdf workflow, the file names coming from the rip are being added to, an example would be: 18000jobname.pdf as the original file name and after the RIP processes them it adds a 1._ before the file name. So we get a ripped file name of 1._18000jobname.pdf(C).ppf and we don't get the 4 required files (CMYK) it treats them as one file. The only thing that reaches the press console is the CIP3 cyan file when all four files are processed. The CIP3 doesn't recognize these additions to the file names. Where are these file names generated by the RIP and/or/why are the altered?
