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:

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.
All you have to do is create a rule to transmit only the 12 digits you want. You can create a rule with the Programming manual or the 123scan software. Both of these are available online at support.symbol.com. Here is a short cut: http://tiny.cc/d400s
