GPSmap 176 not communicating with laptop via serial/USB adaptor

Hello Team,
GPS communicates via supplied 4 pin/ serial cable in old model laptop. New laptop only has USB ports. Bought a serial-to-USB adaptor cable however am unable to get communication. When I plug the USB in I get the sound signal that a device is connected.
If I try to upload/ download waypoints an error tells me there is no communication.
Hoping you can help.

I have an old optical mouse, (wired) the type with the round (looks like s video) type connector. Is there a way to convert this to a USB connection via an adapter or changing the connector? If I need to...


You can solve this problem by purchasing a PS/2 to USB adaptor which you should be able to find for $1 at most tech shops, however it is advised to purchase a new USB Mouse as they function much better with these new computers than the old PS/2 mice.

Looking for download for msr206


There isn't a download for this reader, it simply sends the data read via RS-232, aka, a serial port.

You can get TeraTerm Pro for free (find it with your favorite search engine) to receive the data when you read a card. Other serial port communications programs are available as well.

Most devices like this default to 9600, 8, n, 1 for serial port settings, but you may have to fiddle with these settings, 1200 and 4800 are also fairly common for this type of device .

Is there any way to get my 9-pin Wacom tablet to work on my all-USB input laptop? I have a Xircom 9-pin to USB converter, but there are no Win7 drivers for it that I could locate.


If I remember, most of the 9 pin dot matrix printers used either a 25 pin serial, or a centronix cable which terminated into a 25 pin for the PC side. They do make a USB to Centronix cable. I cannot guarantee it will work if your trying to use anything other than a PCL language for your print jobs.

Edirol fa-66


1.i gained info about the mains supply data (9 volts 2 a, minus pole in the center pole of the plug) which is a quite exotic supply in comparison to standard devices with 12 volts an plus pole in the center pole ...
the fa 66 didn't work , when connected by 4 to 4 or 4 to 6 firewire cable .
my laptop only has a small 4 pole socket.
therefore i suppose that through this 4-pole socket and cable there was no current lead through.

after additionally connecting the fa-66 with mains supply AND 4 to 6 (fa 66 side) cable ... it finally worked.
the manufacturer should print all relevant data directly to the fa 66 device near by the socket und also print "FA-66" onto the supply ... because i own lots of alike-looking supplys and it's a drag to find out which ist good for what...
;-)

I bought an All-in-One Multifunctional Converter (Coolmax CD-350-combo) to transfer my data from my non-working laptop to my new laptop. The problem is that it doesn't fit into my hard drive. My old laptop...


I have spent hours trying to figure out how this damn thing works since the instructions require the user to have way more computing skill than I. First, the thing comes apart, one part being the interface and additional power supply and the other being the power supply that may connect to the Coolmax or your HD power supply if not operational through the Coolmax. If your old HD is larger than 3.5", you may have to connect the power plug to the HD 4 pin power source. otherwise, connect old HD to the Coolmax CD 350 adapter and then connect the Support USB2.0 to a USB interface on your new computer. If your old HD is a 2.5 SATA , do not connect the red power plug to a USB2 interface on your new computer unless you are positive the old HD operates over 5V. Connecting the red USB power source to your new computers USB2 interface may cause the old HD to shoot sparks and smoke, and you will not need the device any more.

Problem connecting from usb to db9


Hello,

There are serial port to USB adapters, but can't you use a USB cable by itself? You can find the adapters at cyberguys.com or milestek.com
