Question about Belkin USB/Serial Portable Adapter (F5U409-CU) Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Belkin USB/adaptor I'm wanting to connect a Garmin Etrec GPS to my laptop but the lead from the GPS has a 9 pin female connection for which does my computer doesn't have a corresponding port so I bought a Belkin USB/Serial adaptor but can't seem to get the two talking to each other. The computer acknowledges there is new hardware but doesn't know what to do with it so I presume I need a driver but have no idea where to go next.

My garmin GPS 12 needs a serial port connection. New HP laptop with Windows 7 OS only has USB connections. Salesman sold me a Belkin F5U109 adapter but windows wont recognise it.

You should install the drivers for the adapter running as administrator. If the adapter is not supported by windows 7 you should give it back to salesman and get a new one compatible with windows 7

Buy an Athen usb-->Rs232 adaptor and install the program.. then go to hardware settings and set that usb port to Serial port 1 (very important)

After that you just start the program, opens your store @ port 1 and programs..

I cannot install BF 810

The problem is two-fold: correct device driver for the endoscope, and correct driver for the adapter.

Please check with the manufacturer of the endoscope whether that connection expects a standard RS-232 port. They might be able to recommend the proper driver combination to get this to work.
