  1. Yes I print from Coreldraw with this cutter on my XP machine all the time. but the Cutter shows up under my Printers as US Cutter, This one Does not it keeps showing up under other devices as FT232 USB UART. there seems to be an issue with my laptop and the drivers and the port or something
  2. Ok so I went and did some checking under printers and devices it shows under other devices FT232R USB UART says my driver is up to date but no luck getting the plotter to come up.
  3. I’m using Corel draw 2017. In driver instructions on this site it says that after downloading the drivers it should move from other devices into the Printers section of the device manager
  4. A couple of weeks ago I installed my MH-871 on my old desktop with Windows XP no problems. Today I'm trying to get my MH-871 to work on my laptop Windows 10 (64 bit) I plugged the cutter into my USB and installed the Driver as instructed on this site, Cutter shows up under Ports Com 5, I didn't get the error about the driver signature so I didn't do the restart troubleshoot steps to disable the signature of the driver, it show the drivers installed and working properly but I cannot get it to come up as a printer, it keeps showing up under other devices Can someone help ?

    MH871 Driver?

    I have a MH871 Refine MK1 and I’m looking for a driver so I can set it up as a printer via USB and cut through CorelDraw X5. Using XP will the MK2 driver work on the MK1?

    Cut DIRECTLY from COREL on MH MK2

    Can you use this set up on the standard MH 871 as well ?
  8. OK so do I which would be best, a 9 pin serial or 25 pin Parallel?
  9. Well I will try the USB first then and if all else fails go to Serial for backup if necessary
  10. I picked up a MH871 and I want to hook it up to my Dell which I already have a roland plotter connected to via Serial Port, Now I would like to hook up my MH871 to this same computer, I was thinking of running the MH871 via USB but have read of issues of the USB not being reliable. So my question is do I try the USB or can I buy a Switch box to switch between the two plotters via Serial cable?
  11. The mh871 I picked up the front measuring scale is in rough condition uscutter doesn't seem to offer a replacement. I have read where others have moved there scales to prevent the vinyl from catching. Has anyone found a replacement source? Or have any ideas

  14. Yes I only paid $40 so I will be good if only the motherboard is bad Can someone tell me what is used for screws to hold the control panel to the top of the plotter? The screws in mine are gone Thanks
  15. I picked up a MH871 Cutter today, and I coudn't see it power up, So I got it home and powered it up and the Fan runs, the control panel screen lights but no words, and the 3 led's are lit, and none of the functions on the control board work, Where do I start to troubleshoot this? also does this take a special blade holder or is there aftermarket ones available ? Also how do you tell if the cutter is MKI or MKII ?
