20-047 cable compatibility issue

I have a Vista 64 computer. I am trying to load frequencies from Scancat into my RS Pro-164 scanner using the 20-047 cable from RS. I was told that the cable would work. It doesn't. No drivers are present nor does the system seem to be able to retrieve them from the web. What do I need to do to load frequencies into my RS scanner using the RS 20-047 cable ?

SOURCE: HP ScanJet 3200 C and HP Deskjet 722C -- will they work with Vista? If yes, what adapter cable would I need?

Hi!

First, drivers for this machine are no longer on the HP website, but are linked to the HP website via FTP at this site:

http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/hp-3200c.html

Click to "allow downloads" if your browser blocks the connection. I did test the link to make sure it was live.

As to Vista, I'm sad to say that my research indicates that these units will not work reliably on Vista, and that HP plans no new drivers for them. This is one of the biggest problems with Vista. In this case, you not only are dealing with printer port to USB cables (which can be made to work, though I don't think I would advise trying to "daisy chain" them (as you had them before) with adapter cables), but with no Vista drivers either. Some people have stated that they have gotten XP drivers to work, but this is, in my experience, a long shot and hit-or-miss proposition.

Given the low cost of new equipment and the fact that you already own the Vista PC, I'd advise you that the safest and least-likely-to-have-you-pulling-your-hair-out-solution is to buy replacement equipment.

Good luck and please let me know if this helps.

When you don't have the drivers-cd:
- Download the XP-drivers of your webcam (and unpack them if they are zipped).

Else start with these steps
1. Uninstall whatever webcam driver you have previously attempted to install.
2. From the device manager, scan for new hardware, and your webcam will be recognized and will continue to search for a driver.
3. If asked for for further search.. choose the place where it must search (cd or your downloaded driver-map)
4. Just allow the prompts to continue with the installation.
5. When the driver is successfully installed, you can test it right away.

Goodluck.

My frequencies were erased how do I get them back


There's no recovery feature, so you'll need to reprogram the scanner. Detailed instructions are in the factory manual which you can download and print, at no cost, here:

How to program a radio shack pro 163 police scanner


The 163 is a trunking scanner, so programming instructions are long and detailed, and they vary for each type of trunking system. Programming instructions are best explained in the factory operating manual. If you don't already have it, you can download/print the manual here:

http://www.scancat.com/OnLineHelp/OEM_Radio_Owners_Manuals/PRO-163-164-OWNERS%20MANUAL_2000164_PM_EN.pdf

You may also want to join a users group for the 163. Check Yahoo or just Google PRO-163.

For a comprehensive database of active frequencies and systems in your area, visit:

www.RadioReference.com

The site also has information that explains the workings of trunking systems, links to users groups, and a lot of other useful scanning information.

I have programmed my pro164 scanner using win97 software and the pc patch cable. i have frequencies programmed to channels onto bank 0. i also programmed the desired talkgroups onto bank 0. problem is when...


you will have to buy the Radio Shack USB cable 20-047 and install
the driver for it and then I downloaded a program named
"Win97" from the www.starrsoft.com website as listed
on page 21 of the Pro-164 manual. The cable costs
$34.99 and with tax you are looking at about $37.88.

The "Win97" software must be registered for it to work
after a 30-day free trial period. That's approx $25.00.

This is the ONLY WAY to go !! You put in everything
on the software GUI and then upload it to the PRO-164.
Works like a champ .
but if you have tried doing this.i advise do it again.again run the program by connecting the cable again.if you have not tried it then do it again. if still the same problem.then it might be the problem with the scanner.get it rechecked from radio shack. there are many many users facing this same problem this particular model of radioshack scanner and other model in which this same problem occurs is pro-197. get it checked with radio shack.tech. This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

Canoscan D646U ex for vista not compatible...how do I make it comatible?


If Canon does not provide a drive for Vista, then you cannot use the scanner with your Vista system.

I had the same problem with certain hardware when I upgraded from Win98SE to XP Pro 64 bit. I set up my computer for dual booting so that I can run both Win98SE and XP Pro.

Eventually I purchased compatible hardware however.
