Programming a DLC7070 barcode reader to read codabar barcodes
I have a Datalink DLC 7070 barcode reader and want to use it to read codabar barcodes. I have searched the Internet and have found that it can be programmed:
Manual: reading special barcodes
Automatic (with RS232): software commands through serial port
WinSET: Windows configuration program
I downloaded a quick start guide from here:
It says that codabar barcodes are disabled and does not have a barcode to change the programming mode to codabar.
However, specifications say that it does read codabar. For example:
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

<p>Reading a bar code in a portable document format (PDF)
document is a simple procedure. Some newer phones come with smart barcode
scanners, and you can scan the Internet to buy. A barcode is a series of lines
of code that identifies a product. When you print the document with a single
piece of technology, you can read a barcode in a PDF document. <br />
<p>1. Open the PDF document. Adobe Reader PDF reader is the
most common. If you do not have Adobe, download the latest version of the
company's website for free download (see Resources). <br />
<p>2. Select "File" drop-down box to the left of
Adobe. Select "Print" and then "OK". <br />
<p>3. Set the bar code scanner. Jumping the gun and a
horizontal red line is designed with the focus of the scanner. Move the line
through the barcode printed on the document until the scanner beeps. Release
the trigger and see the screen on the back of the scanner, which will give you
the information encoded in bar code. <br />
<p>4. Download a barcode scanning application for your smart
phone if you do not want a handheld scanner. Most bar code applications are
free. Open the program and point the camera at the barcode in the PDF. Wait
until the camera for a snapshot of the barcode will not make up the barcode in
the light of the entire camera to take. The program will decode the barcode and
display the results. <br />
The barcode reader is something that the backup software typically uses to identify which tape it is dealing with.
So typically your backup software can already natively read the barcode and therefor you don't need any other software.
The linked barcode reader is probably for reading a barcode that was provided via a picture (from a scanner or camera). This has nothing to do with the barcode reader that can be part of a tape library. NET UPC Barcode Reader
Try downloading the latest version of the driver for the barcode scanner (English name for it). When you install it, there is likely a step that lets you set the language. This is where you would get the computer to show the readout in French.
You may have a barcode control options program on your computer that goes with the driver. If you find one, there is most likely an Options or Preferences menu item that would let you change the language.
Somebody who has actually installed one of these could be more specific, but I'm confident that one of these two suggestions will work.
