What software are you using to cut with? Plotters are not like printers that can print right from your applications, they require a cutting program. Some cutting programs also design to one degree or another such as SignBlazer and Sure-Cuts-A-Lot-Pro and Flexi. Others are just design or just cutting software such as Inkscape, Illustrator or Corel (Design programs) and SignCut (cutting only). 

 

So what program are you using to design and what are you trying to use for cutting?

Hi, the software that I got with it that I'm planning on using to start off with is artcut software, but I'm not at that stage as the computer isn't actually recognising the plotter, so the software can't link to the plotter as it doesn't have a com port asigned to it, I've tried it on xp, vista and Windows 7 I also have flexi that I also aim to use once the plotter is recognised on the computer
