I am wanting to use Psychopy to run an experiment in which it sends a signal to a tms machine. Since new computers don’t have parallel ports, I have attached a parallel port card to the computer and connected the tms machine to this.
However, I am struggling to get the tms machine to fire. Both the demo parallel port code and my code run without error, but the tms machine does not fire.
I was wondering whether anyone has previously used psychopy with a parallel port card? And if so, how did you get it to work?
When I look in device managers at the address of the parallel port it says EFF4-EFF7 and EFF8-EFFF. Therefore would I use 0xEFF4 in my code as the port address?
Any help on this would be greatly appreciated! I’m not sure whether the problem is due to me not having the correct port address, my code to trigger the machine is wrong, or that psychopy isn’t compatible with the parallel port card.
I’ve spent hours looking online but cannot find a suitable answer, and I’m stuck as to where I can get help now.
