If you look for the xml file that has the name of the profile you were using you can then just drop that into your new drives Mach3 folder and all your settings will be back.

Hey There,

After a hard drive failure, I am reloading the system. I had a copy of the XML from my machine manufacturer and pasted it in the Mach 3 folder. The problem is it doesn't seem t pick it up or something. Do I need to delete something first?

Any help please.

Jim
XML doesn't seem to work

Considering its taken you 8 months to respond to the help offered to your original post then maybe you will get a response in April 2013 ;)

Hood,

I guess I fiquered it out the last time and forgot to comment on that fact.

This is a different machine and I am pulling my hair out with this one. I still have not been able to get it to read the XML file that it did read the original installation. What could possibly be wrong? I have no back up for this XML as the hard drive failed and I assumed the orginal one would work again (that I had stored on another PC.)

As a side question, under PURCHASES, there are break out boards. What difference is there between the stock one and anyone of those boards. Would they offer better performance?

Thanks Jim

Hi Hood,

I am a little challenged by this forum, but working thru it.

I think I have attached the XML file. I am grateful for your assistance.

Thanks,
Jim

XML looks ok from first glance, are you choosing the correct one when starting Mach?
The post is set to a standard onboard port, if you are not using that then you may have the wrong address set.
