No improvement today,
I reset the output pins but cannot get anything to move. Using a different program the motors move so I know that if there are step and direction signals it will work. There is obviously something that I am missingĀ  settingĀ  in the config menus but I have no idea as to what I am not doing correctly. Tried slow speeds low, high and inbetween acceleration but nothing seems to be coming from the computer, as I said it works using a different controller so my lack of motor movements must be because I have not done something.

Hey John,
    Can you post your XML file here for us to see?

Hi Brett,
Second attempt to send what I hope is the file you asked for. Had to add John to the front as I was informed the file had already been sent or was there. Cyber confusion strikes again as I do not remember trying to send it before.

I also meant to say, I noticed one of your motor tuning pages, I think the x, had a flat line. Need to give it a little more than that. See pic.

Will do when it gets to daylight again,
One thirty five here at the moment so I think perhaps I'll go to bed. Been trying to convert a picture ended up at 738 MB, a bit on the big size I think. Try a more simple picture later.

Had a day off today after the previous problems so still have not advanced much,
This evening I decided to download some tutorials and in one I was listening to the setting up of pins etc and it said about port numbers and port 0 not existing and had to be changed to port 1. Firing up the laptop I went straight to the config files and sure enough port 0 was ticked. I have now changed the three motor sets to port 1 ready for a new start as soon as I sort out an alternative power supply. I had assumed that the port number had defaulted to match the parallel port of LPT1 but obviously I had thought wrongly so now I am hoping that it might possibly start to work. If I can just get 3 motors moving I can then tune them but at present they only twitch when switching on the computer and that is as far as I get.
Hoping for some results tomorrow.
John
