Hello everyone, I am new here. This is my first post! I wanted to share with everyone on how I got my MH 871 to connect via USB without any adapters. I very recently purchased the MH 871 cutter. I had a difficult time setting up the machine. I have noticed that there are a lot of people who seem to be having similar issues getting this cutter to communicate with your computer via USB connection. When I first began setting up the machine, I assumed that all you would have to do is download the drivers and software and plug the cutter in and it would recognize the machine and cut, but I was wrong! There is a crucial step in the setup process that I was missing. (This step wasn't included in any of the instructions given to me with the cutter, which I think is why everyone is having so many problems with getting it to work correctly.) The steps that I used to get my cutter to work with Vinyl Master Pro is as follows: Set up cutter and plug in to the computer via USB cable. Download and install the device drivers from US cutter website. Download and install Vinyl Master Pro. Go to the Vinyl Spooler menu (looks like the space shuttle icon) Go to the connections tab and click the detect button. This will open a new window. This next part is very important. This is where I kept messing up. On Step 1, make sure to TURN OFF your machine. (This is very important.) Click next and then you should be on step 2. Turn the machine back on. Click next and it will detect the machine. This should fix the problems without needing to buy any additional cables or adapters and you should not need to change any port settings. I have no idea why they made the setup that way, probably due to some type of limitations with the cutters internal software or something. Hope this helps!
