I will say that I had bought a drive and BOB from them about a year ago and they were excellent with customer support and even called me to help me with my setup.

Good people from my experience-

DID you try swapping out the cables?? THis could easily be a bad connection or cable??? It is not always the drive(;-)

Just a thought, Before you BUST their chops,    (;-)TP

Actually I checked the continuity of the pins on each cable and it was ok.

There are 3 ribbon cables connecting the 3 drives to BOB. I did not mark which one goes where but I doubt it that they all went to the same drive as before. Therefore I would say yes I swapped them

So did you ever check the wiring conections to the motors?

Just sounds like it's exactly what I had going on.

No I never checked the wiring to the motors.

Perhaps I'm wrong but the motors are working good, it is the direction of the axes that are not working and not the motors spin direction.

I meant YOUR wiring to the conections for the motors, not the motors themselves  ;)

What type of connectors are you using?

If you unplugged the cables from a previously bad drive and plugged them into the good drive and that axis started behaving then it can only be a drive fault I would say.

TO me this says you don't know if you did or not(;-)

But that is just MY opinion, but precise test proceedures are critical sometimes and assuming well you know the rest.

Just a thought, (;-) TP
