    I’m thinking your problem may be your laptop… laptops have many power saving features, some that shutdown USB conections. Laptops aren’t reccomended for running a ShopBot. Try running it on a desktop computer. It’s been a long time, I don’t remember why, but I considered the USB to be an inprovement!
