    Oddly odd. If I get a chance I will check mine tonight and see what happens but I have a different cpu card from you. Might be best to email Bert and see what he says.

    I will do that thanks. I had pondered on reinstalling the software so it was fresh incase something had happened in the download. Suppose it couldn't hurt

    Like you say it woudnt hurt. Just make sure that the install drivers bit completes after the program install. I think it does need all its own stuff to work correctly. You could also try inverting the amp enable output just to see what happens.

    Just tried mine and it does turn off the drives and also the tick in the I/O screen for enable goes off. I am using V4.01 of the software.
    Probably best to email Bert and see what he says.

    Ah I'm using 4.02. Wonder if I should use that version for now

    It would be worth a try even if its just to see what happens. One thing I did notice was that after turning the drives off the button wont turn them back on. You have to press reset but that might be built into the software.

    Yeah same on this version too

    Have a go with V4.01. You don't have to uninstall the version you have.

    Yeah I will pal,just finishing off some method statements for my company, worst job ever!

    OK, version 4.01 still acts the same... couple questions if you don't mind?

    1. The light on the board - When the drives are enabled is this light supposed to stay on?
    2. The 5V to enable the drives - which inputs are these to go into? i originally had the in 16 and GND and it works but motors would still stay engaged if i disabled the motors with the software.

    Sorry - the IO screen that button does stay checked. I got mixed up, its actually the amp enable that will not stay checked.

    I have also soldered the bottom of the board as asked
