From Meade and other places. The software is simply Autostar Suite version 5.5 which can be downloaded for free from Meade here:
http://www.meade.com/support/downloads.html

The cable can also be ordered from Meade here:
http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

or everything from amazon.com here but it is cheaper to download the software for free and buy the cable separate directly from Meade..

I want connect my phone to a computer


Your phone has a mini-USB port so you can connect it to a computer to transfer data. Motorola Original USB data cables and supporting software are sold separately. Check your computer or hand-held device to determine the type of cable you need. To transfer data between your phone and computer, you must install the software included with the Motorola Original data kit. Have you been provided with cable and the CD software. If so then it is easy. Download the software from the CD in your computer. Then connect the cell phone with the USB cable to the computer. Now you can download the data from the computer and vice versa.

To reload the software you need the cables kit you mentioned. Both firmware and tours are available on the Meade web site for free download.

I would like to download pics from a digital camera to my computer but the computer is old. I see no port for digital card


Do you have the CD that came with your digital camera?

IF so, put it in your optical drive, and install the software.
This CD contains the drivers for your camera.
Drivers allow your computer to 'communicate' with you camera.

Now obtain the correct USB connector that plugs into your camera. Should be a male Micro, style of USB male plug,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:USB_types_2.jpg

The plug all the way to the left in the photo.

They sell USB cables that have this style of male USB plug on one end, and the usual USB A style on the other end of the cable.

Male. The male USB A style, is shown all the way to the right in the photo.

Looking at the usual style of USB plug, compare it's size to the Micro USB plug.

Yes, the female version of that plug is on your phone.

There is also a kit made by Philips, that has 5 different adapter ends of the USB style, in the kit.

The adapter ends just plug onto a male USB A style end.
The kit comes with a Male A USB to Male A USB cable.
It's rolled up on a tiny reel that is about 1 inch wide, and is retractable.
You just grab the ends of the cable, and pull out the length of cable you need.

This gives you an idea of what I'm referring to,

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Emerge-Tech-Retractable-USB-2.0-A-Male-to-A-Female-Cable/12575359

With the software from your camera installed on your computer, and the USB cable plugged from your camera to your computer, you are able to download.

Some camera's have it so you turn the camera on, and open the shutter. Your camera may differ. Check your camera user guide.

Another way is to buy an All-In-One card reader.
Plug a USB cable into it, and your computer.

This is an example,

Vista will not work with autostar 494


I did some research on meade 506 astrofinder software

Read this...

Customer Review:
Rating: stars-1.0.gif
Summary: outdated software
The software this kit comes with is old and outdated. It is not supported by Windows XP nor Windows Vista. The latest supported version of Windows is Windows 98.
It also appears that the included software is a limited trial software. It is limited to the included 3 catalogs (star maps). The complete set of catalogs must be purchased additionally at quite some expense.
The cable connection kit couldn't be reviewed because it was missing from the package I received, but keep in mind when you order this kit, that neither Windows XP nor Windows Vista support serial ports anymore. The additional USB to serial adapter would be required.

That last line would suggest to me that if one had a USB to Serial adapter it might work? but I really do not know for sure. checking into some more stuff...

Found another article that states "It requires a PC running Windows 98SE through Windows XP. It will not run under Windows 95 or earlier, nor will it run under Windows Vista."

OK I found this site, you might be able to make some sense of it. But I did read in there that they do make USB serial adapters that will work with Vista OS.

Good Luck and happy star gazing! If you find something new out there maybe you could name it after me if you get it working. lol
