i am not getting any connection with the serial cable for my sm48 cutter. I bought the cutter used and the person I purchased it from said it wasnt the original serial cable that came with it. Is the original serial cable different than a standard serial cable. I cant get my computer to recognize the cutter at all, have tried 4 different computers and two different serial cables plus tried serial to usb adaptor. The guy I bought the cutter from is ordering a usb to serial cable from the company but I need to know about the serial cable that came with the cutter. I thought a serial cable was the same for all devices and I didnt think there was more than 1 type of them. I would like to know if there is anything else to try to get the computer to recognize the cutter. I have of course loaded the software and set to the right cutter and used the right com port but when i click on cut it just stops responding and the hour glass stays on forever until i close the program
