I had it cut 2 small 2x2 squares and it works. Let's see if it gives me anymore problems like it did before. Remember it has not been consistent.

Ends up I messed up - That was the USB driver 2.08.02 with the new Mach 3 v16bdg DLL plugin.

On my netbook I got the same error message yesterday and Up graded both at same time. New USB 2.08.08 and new Mach 3 v16bdg plugin. To know it came up with old driver and new plugin AGAIN, that may mean the new plugin caused my problems yesterday.

So I am now running the Beta2_v015ogx2 DLL plugin and the 2.08.08 USB driver on the new PC and see what happens.

New Mach 3 DLL and older USB driver - got through three very small scroll saw patterns. See how it goes.

Stopped in the middle of the job with no errors. So now on the new PC I am trying old USB and old mach 3 driver.

32 bit Windows arrived.

I had more problems with smooth stepper with the new computer than I did on the netbook. I am so glad that (at least that the 32 bit version is what I need for Mach) I will get Mach 3 running with no smooth stepper and no more problems. Will run a couple of tests once Windows 7 32 bit is finished installing.

Well heres hoping it all stays good, the parallel port is definitely very resistant to noise.
