How much is it out? Do you have any backlash? If you have backlash comp switched on is it set correctly? Could you be missing steps by having your motors tuned to aggressively?

You can usually hear if they are missing badly but if its just the occasional then you may not. Try increasing the pulse width to 5 and see if that helps, you could also try changing the active state  for Step and Dir pins.

No the xml is your configuration file. If you are using the standard mill profile then go to the Mach3 folder and look for Mach3Mill.xml, copy it to your desktop and rename it osman.xml
On the reply page you will see additional options, use that to browse to your desktop and choose the renamed file.
