I used method 1 to connect my cricut expression to sure cuts a lot. The cricut cutter showed up and seemed to install correctly, but when I go to cut, it gives me an error message saying there is no recognized cutter and to check my USB connection, unplug the cricut and USB, wait 10 seconds, then plug back in. I tried both suggestions and am still getting the same error message. Do you have any advice of what I can try?
all the answers to any questions are in the comments hre. Google Make the cut 4.1.0 look for a post on tumblr, it is the only one I saw that has a safe download and is still up. Tumblr does not care about copyright law. (I tested the download myself, scanned, downloaded and used, no issues) after that you should be able to use your cricut with your computer.
the best I can tell you is to GoogleMake the cut 4.1.0 look for a post on tumblr, it is the only one I sawthat has a safe download and is still up. Tumblr does not care aboutcopyright law. (I tested the download myself, scanned, downloaded andused, no issues) after that you should be able to use your cricut withyour computer. At worst it wont work, and best it does. If it does work, let me know. I need to write a new post about the cricut.
downloaded the driver to plugin directoryloaded cricut software and ran in demo modeupdated firmware to 2.3.4 (took several tries because as usual I did not read the directions) (it takes 2 passes to complete on some units)(follow the directions)loaded make the cutruns great
If you are quick enough you can hit stop before it cuts an x through your workthe software is great and I will buy it after I try a few more things to make sure I can do what I need to do with it.
It worked perfectly. I had a harder time updating the firmware from Cricut then I did getting MTC to cut. If anyone has any issues with the drivers not automatically installing when you connect the cricut to a Win 7 computer. You can find a driver that works online. Cricut did not have an easy to find solution especially since the software claims to only work on XP or Vista 32 operating systems. It does work with win 7 64, just FYI. Thank you so much for the information. I used the trial MTC software first to make sure it worked and it did. Now I will purchase the software. I am one happy camper 2b1af7f3a8
