It looks to me like a something I had problem with, though didn't try to rotate motor connection wires. I'm using Mach3Turn software.
When I jogged in one direction, motor was turning. When I jogged in the other direction (by pressing the other direction tastature arrow) motor didn't turned at all. When tried to turn it by hand, it couldn't be done, motor holded position.
I checked defined numbers for Step/Dir pins (in Config-Ports and Pins) several times and nothing.
But, while checking one time I saw that for "step" pin was selected digit 2, and for "dir" pin digit 3. That was for X axis. But, it should be digit 3 for a "step" pin and digit 2 for a "dir" pin.
So, while I was checking earlier, I just was making attention on the digits itself and not the position.
So, check that again and check it carefully. Maybe that is a problem,
