Thread: Can't get my computer to recognize Chinese 50W laser

  1. #1

    Question Can't get my computer to recognize Chinese 50W laser

    I purchased a Chinese 50W laser from eBay. I have a laptop next to the laser so I want to send programs over the USB cable instead of loading engraving files on a USB stick. The laser came with RD Works 8.0. Any suggestions on what I can do to get the USB connection to work?

    Thanks

    Try loading the USB driver again. Also, try using different USB ports on the computer, each one has its own com port #, and if a port you're plugged into is assigned as a 'shared resource' within the computer the machine may not recognize it when searching.

    And insure that RDworks is set to communicate by USB..... Should be default, but it might not be. And does the laser have a true USB port, not a stick port.

    Are you using the cable that comes from inside the laser. Mine has the usb that connects to the controller in the cabinet.

    So the OP has never came back. We have that a Lot here. Ask a question and never come back to say wither it worked on not. Kind of makes you just pass on the new folks who just join, ask one question and go away.

    The posts I tire of more than that are the one admonishing people for not acknowledging an answer and the ones constantly telling people to contribute $. We are all adults here, no need for a mother-hen to peck away.
