All USB ports have four leads attached. Tthe outside rails contain the positive and negative voltage of 5V and the two inside rails is the transmit and receive. I would take the interface apart and replace the USB connector. Maybe Radio Shack or another electronic shop would have the same USB connector. See:
Try a local computer shop that does repairs. You will have to unsolder the old port and take it with you to get a match.Also a good electronics parts dealer should have one or be able to order one for you.
it depends if the port has come off with out damaging the board if its damaged the board its more harder to replace the port. sometimes you are luck and its just broken the slider as its tin base. and it can rip, but you cannot tell until its been opened and looked at.
connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!
