Diehl DL405 molder DOS operating sys7/1
Hi, we recently purchased a used Diehl Accumold DL405 with a Diehl Touch Computer Positoning System. the operating system is an outdated DOS based system and will not boot to a point where we can do anything to make it function. The Diehl company no longer supports this system and has no info to offer. Any info from anyone as to reprogramming options, ideas, or such would be helpful. Do we have a very large boat anchor, or can the computer operating system be reserected in any way. Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You might call a independent computer technician. It may be possible to upgrade your existing system.
I have experience working on the older machines and backing up the DOS computers. I then have transferred those systems over to a windows based PC still running the original DOS program on-top of windows. There is a special DOS program I use to get these programs to work. Standard windows DOS won't work and doesn't allow access to serial ports, etc.
Let me know and I can come and help perform this. I am based out of Charlotte, NC.
If your 405 turns out to be a boat anchor please let me know. I could use a good parts machine.
