Question about Olympus D-460 Zoom Digital Camera
My Dad updated his computer and it has no serial input...his camera cable has the 9 pin serial connector. Do you have a way to adapt this....maybe to USB? Or is there another solution...he likes the camera and is 82, so I would like to not change cameras. Thanks John Shimp
Welcome to FixYa! There are DB9 to usb adaptors at any electronics store like Radio Shack or Fry's. Also there are serial connectors that connect internally to motherboards having a COM port connection if this is a desktop/tower computer. Though he likes the camera he might like the fact that newer cameras have a much higher resolution than previously available for much less than he may have paid for the present one.
If you have any further questions feel free to post them here and include the brand/model of the new computer. Steve Medley
