I've got an old CD Autoloader.
It's a Nistec ALW-501, i have the software for this piece of hardware,
but i don't have a cable.
The unit has a 25 pins connector.
Pins 2,3 6,7 and 20 are used on the unit.
Is anyone familiar with those pins? i need a 9 pin serial connector at
the other side, but don't know where to put which lines.
Maby this is a default cable Smile

Sounds like you've got RS-232 on both ends. Check this out:

No guarantees, but possibly the second one here?

Hello Daan,

I've got also the Nistec ALW-501.....i've got the cable, but don't have
the software. Can you please send me the software?
The cable is like in the picture a null-modem. I heard that you defenitely
need a termination block plugged into the extra "daisy-chain" SCSI
connector on the back of the unit. Also, the robotics uses a "Null
modem" configuration.

I hope this is the right information for you, but please help me with the
drivers and software, otherwise this machine is useless.

Greetings,
Ronald

FWIW, I know this thread is super old, but I have both the Interface Manual and the Users Manual for the Nistec ALW-501. If anyone would like a copy, e-mail me at lss1 ~at~ sti346.com.
