Hello coreyog. I think I can help you with at least part of this. The "suffixing with an enter" you're describing is called a Carriage Return. If you go to your manual, you'll be able to find the Carriage Return enable and disable barcodes. Disabling the Carriage Return should fix that part at least.
As far as the digits not found in the barcode, there are about a thousand and one reasons it could be doing this. Generally, I suggest to my clients that they use the manual to reset the defaults of the scanner while plugged in to the problematic machine, after resetting, unplug the scanner and plug it back in. This should get windows to re-discover the device, as it were. This takes care of it about 75% of the time. I hope I've at least helped you get a start on fixing your scanner foibles. Good luck!
The scanner must be set to the IBM PC/AT host type. Unfortunately, these scanners are not plug and play. They do not detect the keyboard host on power up so the host type barcode must be scanned the first time it is setup. It should remember that host type until you set defaults. The IBM PC/AT host type barcode is on Adobe page 56 of 342 of the LS2208 Product Reference Guide. Print and scan this barcode. The scanner should start working immediately.
you should have a code book that came with the scanner, the code book allows you to program the scanner's options, the code book takes you step by step through the programming proccess. each option requires you to scan varios barcodes to "set" the various options
one of the options will be to set the barcodes you wish to use, this is set to avoid a misread (confusion between barcode standards)
