Just keep an eye on those drivers... I use the same ones on my R31 and after a few months they all of a sudden went berzerk... It wouldn't cut the design properly leaving parts out and random shapes and lines within it.... If you look on their forum and search you will see this issue time and time again.... If you have the option I would go to a Serial... Also on the usb the on screen controls for contour cutting never worked properly either.

agguilar, I just wanted to say thanks, your how-to saved my ass! I don't know why they decided to remove the r24 driver in the vinylUPDATED csm.. idiocy. For anyone looking to resolve getting their Redsail cutter working with Flexi 8.1 Look No Further! 

 

Thanks again!  B)
