Have you been able to solve the problem?That is exactly the same problem that I am having   ie.. to be able to translate those vague IN/OUT signal usage in the manual for this driver from Univelop.I bought mine on ebay and I have not been able to get my motors to turn. I spent countless hours trying to get it going but dont seem to make any progress.I emailed the seller about 4 days ago but no response.
       I used to have Driver from MDfly.com which works fine  ie..turns all the 3 axis motors to get a job done.It required just one power supply.I accidentally fried it from a new power supply.

I should have posted my solution when i got it here.

theres a output option, with 'enable' settings.  set these to 8 9 and 14 to enable each axis.  make sure step and dir is set.  double check your port number.   use the arrow keys and you should get results.

all 3 axis are turning, both directions, and i'm currently in frame development phase w/ the machine itself now.

Can anyone help...
I did that but the  x & y motors are acting wierd.They are continously turning in the clockwise direction & will only change direction when i reverse them with the arrow keys.
  Also there is another observation,the X & Y motors will only stop when I press the estop button.As soon as it is released it continue with its motion.
   I was about able to run the roadrunner gcode but I could tell that the X & Y motors are running against the continous motion as described.
    The Z axis motor is fine.It responds appropriately to the "pageup & pagedown" keys on the keyboard.
  what am I doing wrong here?Can anybody help?

Check your wiring, sounds like you have it wrong, either that or you may have duplicate pins enabled in Mach for more than one function.

Then if all that is correct the next most likely is noise on the Step/Dir signals.
