I took each of the drives along with the ribbon cable shown in the pic and plug it to each of the 3 plugs in BOB. Each time I had to shut down / reboot the system to avoid possible "sparks". The results = no good, axes reverses unpredictably.

So I re installed the good drive and the ribbon cable shown in the other pic and test again. The results = EXCELLENT. No reversal, axis travels only according to arrow key pressed.

Now let see what Probotix will say tomorrow

As far as I know you can only expand it  by moving the mouse to the left border of it then when you see the wee double arrow hold the mouse button and move left or right to resize.

Of course you are right Hood

I was looking at the wrong border.....now all is fine

Sorry about it

The good drive along with each of the 3 ribbon cables was tested to each of the 3 plugs on BOB.

Everything worked good, axis travels according to key pressed, no reversal.

Guess ribbon cables and BOB plugs are ok, only the 2 other drives are defective.
