Unable to Perform Magnetic Encoding using cardPresso ?

Unable to Perform Magnetic Encoding using cardPresso ?

First of all, make sure your card printer has been fitted with the magnetic encoder module

Secondly, make sure you are able to perform magnetic encoding through the printer's driver.

Goto

Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\Devices and Printers\

Printing Preferences\Tools\Magnetic Encoding\Encoding settings

Perform a test encoding - for more information.

Printing Preferences\Tools\Magnetic Encoding\Encoding settings


If this works, then it means the card printer is working fine, the problem lies with cardPresso software.



Start cardPresso software.

Open the card template.

Goto

File\Print Settings

Make sure the 'Printer' is selected properly - select the printer that is currently online or connected.

Then, If you are using Evolis printer (i.e Evolis Pebble4), make sure 'Print Options\Magnetic Encode\Macros' is selected as 'Evolis' - by default, it is set as 'User-defined'.

This should work.
