Aha, so on my board I have a DB9 connector that is an RS232 port. I'm guessing then that the pins with the A,B,GND and VOD are the 485? Which means I connect the USB to my computer, and then the R-/R+ pins from my VFD to the A/B pins on my converter board. Sound about right? Thanks for the help guys This is the one I have:

Yes, A&B and Grd are the 485 and they connect to the VFD.
Let me know how that little converter works out.

Be sure to set your jumpers to 485 on the USB to 485 converter.

good call. Is it obvious what the jumper configuration is? It didn't come with a manual.

There is a transmit and a receive section of the jumpers. I'm guessing that if I'm using USB -> converter -> VFD  I should have the receive jumper set to 232, and the transmit jumper to 485? Thanks again for the help guys.

Both go to  the 485 jumper pins.

I have been running the HangyangVFD plugin by Matty Zee on my CNC for the past year without any problems. I recently had a (Blue Screen of Death) from my Windows XP operating system and had to completely reinstall everything. I got everything working again but cannot get the Hangyang driver to be recognized by the Mach3 software. I get the following errors when I load Mach:

Plugin DLL Defective. Reload.

Then

HuanyangVFD.dll-Defective Plugin found..ignoring..

I cannot see the plugin at the Mach plugin config screen. I tried re-downloading the driver and erasing the old one but no dice... Anyone know how I can fix this???

I am running Mach3 version: R3.043.022
I am current on Windows XP service packs and all updates.

Thanks in advance on assistance. Need to figure this out fast as I have a couple jobs on hold because of this issue.

Did you happen to remember to download the VC 2008 redistributables?

How did you make out with the 485 converter and the VFD?

There is a transmit and a receive section of the jumpers. I'm guessing that if I'm using USB -> converter -> VFD  I should have the receive jumper set to 232, and the transmit jumper to 485? Thanks again for the help guys.
