PostSubject: laptop setup for new CNC TAIG   Sun Sep 01, 2013 2:15 pm

Hello Taig forum, just set up a new Taig 2000 CNC from Jeff's Soigeneris. I am pleased with the build quality of mill, and the head electronics. I am still setting up Acer laptop per the "STDR-4C manual" requirements -usb never goes power save, never sleep, etc. In the document the screen captures are a little blurry. Do I set the hard drive to turn off in 2 minutes per document? I had it set to never and have a persistent crash with the message:

Error returned from USB function FT_Write.
Error: FTDI USB Driver Error
Error=FT_IO_Error
Bytes requested 64

I thought the 2 minutes was a typo, but maybe that's my problem....pale

Update - after setting hard drive to turn off in 2 minutes, the Acer laptop was doing good for 40 minutes-then same error while it was just sitting there. Maybe integrated video card? (intel HD graphics). So I loaded mach3 files on older HP windows 7 laptop with integrated AMD Radeon video and I am running my first part! Been ok for 1.5 hours now-no problems.

This is fun stuff. I am used to a HAAS cnc control, but am getting familiar with MACH3-Very Happy Very Happy

The hard drive so be set to never turn off. Setting it that way should have no effect on the USB system though unless the laptops BIOS is doing something goofy. The FTDI error can be cause by Windows trying to shut down power to the USB ports though. You need to set the USB ports to not turn off.

I'll have to double check the screen shots I used, thanks for the heads up.
