I hooked up an external 5v supply to the ss and set the jumper but I still keep having a problem every 5 minutes to 1 hour where my spindle speed drops to 78 rpm and mach freezes completley. I can open device manager and SS is still present under USB but Mach will not respond.
I can force mach to close and i get the error reporting pop up , below is what it says

szAppName : Mach3.exe     szAppVer : 1.0.0.1     szModName : hungapp     
szModVer : 0.0.0.0     offset : 00000000 


When I click the more details box I get the message below

C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER92ee.dir00\Mach3.exe.mdmp
C:\DOCUME~1\Owner\LOCALS~1\Temp\WER92ee.dir00\appcompat.txt

When I force mach to close and then reopen it I get the error message stating that SS is not connected , to close mach , unplug and replug usb to SS and restart Mach.

Any thoughts on whats going on?

Can you look at the SS monitoring page when you are aving problems or are you not able to do that?

Have you got more than one SS plugin in the plugins folder? If so delete the older ones.
Make sure its the latest plugin you are using.

Not sure what to suggest as if Mach is crashing then its hard to find out if the SS is losing it or if its something else.
 Would be interesting if you could go back to the PP and see if everything is stable.

Hi:

  The error messages dont really tell much because your forcing it to close.
Is it totally unresponsive in all aspects, can you trigger an Estop for example?

  It should be near impossible for MAch3 to lock up when not using the printer port.. unusual at least.
I would delete all files in the plugins folder except the smoothstepper.dll and see if that helps.. It may be some
other plugin causing the lockup due to some bad interaction. Worth a shot anyway.

Totaly unresponsive, The hour glass pops up as the pointer and nothing can be clicked, estop does nothing. Its as if its lost comm with the smooth stepper and its waiting .

Forcing Mach to close leaves the spindle turning and coolant on , juast as it was when the program locks. I can then walk to the back of the machine and unplug the SS and the spindle and coolant will stop.

After it locks and I close mach I have to unplug and replug the SS board before Mach will connect with it again.

I have moved all the plugins other than SS to a temp folder , will run it the rest of the day and see what happens

Ran about 20 seconds this time, I was just manualy jogging with spindle on  . Hourglass cursor is up , spindle is turning around 80 rpms . Estop button, cycle start , pause have no effect. Cant click anything in mach either .
