How did you connect it to Arduino ?

Did you remember to connect Arduinos ground to the motorcontrollers ground ?

Can you give more details about what you're doing and how it's not working? Note that the controller automatically detects the baud rate and the Arduino's serial.begin() seems to put some garbage on the line that doesn't work with the automatic baud detection routine. Have you tried resetting the motor controller after calling serial.begin()? Another solution is to set the Arduino's transmit pin (pin 1) as an output after you call serial.begin().
