Hi there. I am looking to get Cip3 files from our pre-press to our SM 74. We have Studio Rip software and the machine is a 1999 SM74-5 with CPC 1.04/cp tronic. The SM74 takes a flash card. Does anyone out there know where we can get the flash card reader/writer?
Also, I am pretty sure we cannot write the card directly from the studio RIP, but need Prinect Metadimension and Pre-press manager. is this the easiest way to go ?

I havedone a search on here and lo and behold the answer appears after I post!

Will look into Inkzone.
