Does the SWC work fine from floppy?

Here's what I would suggest:

Use an external power supply on the SWC.

Ohm out the cable with an ohm meter to make sure it's 1-1 on all pins. Just because you tried 3 different cables doesn't mean that one of them is correct for your application -- verify it.

Send a ROM image that you have dumped on your SWC and loaded from floppy so you are sure that it works on your unit.

Check your computer's BIOS settings for the parallel port. If you can select different protocols such as EPP try selecting a different one to see if that makes a difference.

If you try all this and it still doesn't work it may be that the parallel port interface chip in the SWC is bad.
