you might want to seriously consider using the serial connection - it is more reliable to many people.  I personally never had a problem but many people have cured this by going serial

Serial is a older type of connection but offers the data flow that the cutter needs.

Pcut cutters don't have a large onboard memory and sometimes USB connection can dump too much to the cutter and lock it up.

Using a serial to usb keyspan will allow the cutter to receive a constant flow of data that will not clog it up.

I use a serial to serial cord . You might want to try that if you have serial plugs on your computer & cutter  ( Radio Shack sells them = $16 ) .

using the dedicated xp desktop is a great way to go!  I design on one computer and take the design by thumbdrive to the cutter and do the work
