Nikkai usb serial convertor - no driver

Nikkai USB to serial convertor instructions say that you don't need driver if using Vista - its allegedly plug and play. That unfortunately is not correct - it does, but Vista can't find the driver on the CD that came with the product and it won't work without one!!!. Can't find Nikkai Computers web site, can't find drivers online. Its a bit strange - product came from Maplins

    I have the same problem with Nikkai USB serial converter 9 pins. Bought it from Maplin and have installed the driver that come with it but have an error message (code 34) " Windows cannot determine the setting for this device...bla..bla...bla".



    I check on one of the website and it was advised to set the port settings to:

    9600; 8; None; 1; Xon/Xoff .......however still not solving the problem. I used COM 6 as allocated automatically under General tab " Communication Port". Can anyone help advise the correct setting?



    I use this port to transfer data from my laptop to Garmin GPS Etrex H.

    Hi,


    I brought the Nikkai USB serial port adapter to connect my new Macbook pro to an ELISA plat reader we have in our lab.


    I keep getting a serial port error message 'The  selected com port is not valid for this reader'.


    Any help would be appreciated.

    Vista cannot find the driver. Although the box says Vista the PDF file of instructions on the mini disc does not mention Vista. Bought from Maplins

I need a Vista driver for the USA-19QW Serial Adapter


I have an old 4-port Keyspan serial device that also doesn't work with Vista.  Unfortunately Keyspan didn't provide Vista drivers for some of the older USB to Serial devices before they were acquired by Tripp-Lite, so you will probably need to get a replacement (Keyspan usa-19hs has Vista support, that one works for me).  The support page for Keyspan USB devices is here: USB Connectivity & Device Servers
