Ouch!  Our machine, before it died (diferent story) was hooked up through that
port to a PC.  Hitachi does not support the software to do this.  The company
that wrote it is Galactic Industries Corporation.  It is a truely hideous
program but it will convert the data into ASCII files.

Bug me if you need to know more about the company,  the machine is in another
