    I have same machine and controller as you DarbyoHara. Would you be so kind and email me or put it on Google Drive (my mail is damo1023atgoogle.com) the software, drivers and pdf's that came with the machine? I would really help me a lot to start the machine. I am using HP laptop with usb 2.0 ports and Windows XP.

    I hope I don't ask too much. Thank you for your help in advance.

    best regards,
    Damjan
    There are no drivers that I know of. The main communication between the computer and the machine is Mach 3. The copy I got from the Chinese seller was a hack that didn't work because after the hack, it still was limited. I purchased a legal license of Mach 3 to be legal and to be unlimited. You really need to convince your ebay seller that you MUST have the software and proper documentation of your machine.

    Hello,

    thank you for your answer. In the mean time seller provided me with software and settings. Now I can turn X Y Z, will try A in the afternoon and then I have to figure out how to control spindle. It responds on M3/M4/M5 commands, but haven't figured out how to set speed.

    regards,
    Damjan

    I guess that you will have to set the speed manually in VFD

    Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude.
    My personality is who I am. My attitude depends on who you are.

    Have you set the VFD controller's D001 setting yet? If your machine is like mine, I had set the D001 and it worked fine. Some how I later lost those setting and couldn't control the spindle untill I checked and reset the D001 setting.

    I am encountering a new issue of my Windows 7 64 bit computer locking up that is connect USB to the machine. First, I have this older IBM NUC small computer that has an i3. In the middle of jobs sometimes the hdmi screen would go into a jitter state and lock up the computer and the job would just die. Only way to recover was a hard reboot. I researched on google and some claim to make sure BIOS and video drivers are up to date and possibly change the HDMI cable. Done all that... still was freezing occasionally. Hooked up my Toshiba Qosmio i5 Windows 7 64 bit which NEVER had an issue since I bought it in 2011... Everything worked well on several jobs. Until yesterday. In the middle of a big pocket cut job I noticed the monitors were jumping occasionally, but it was not effecting the job progress. Was about to change the tool for the next tool-path job and looked at the computer... it rebooted on its own. Grrrrrr! Something is causing my computers to act bad or lock up. The Chinese seller claimed that this version machine would allow 64 bit on the USB. I am beginning to think it might be conflicting. Anyone else have these issues on a 64 bit machine? The USB cable is brand new. I am almost afraid to start a large job for fear of lock ups or BSOD type issues. Any help or suggestion?

    My first thought was that an i3 would not have enough grunt for this type of work ( just my thoughts...no proof )

    Check the PC's performance under Task Manager while doing a job...see if the CPU or RAM are Maxing out. Other trends may give you clue as well....

    More RAM *may* help if you don't have enough,( Probablly need at least 4 Gig ...more better) OR your CPU still still NOT be up to it...hard to say....

    'Never has an issue' with running Mach 3 or just generally?

    Some feel the USB system on Laptops are not robust enough for this sort of work. I have NEVER used a Laptop....others have no problems at all using Laptops......
    Do you have Desktop PC you can test with?

    Overheating *can* cause this....also bad RAM, and other reasons....lol

    Is the USB cable screened? Cable needs to be 'good quality'....more important than being new.

    Electrical noise generated by poor wiring in your control box may be the source of all your problems.....The trouble is you will void the warrenty if you open the box to have a look...some say your not loosing anything....lol Your call.
    Basically, everything should be earthed to the same point.
    Good luck.
