Question about ID Tech IDMB-334112B Magnetic Card Reader
How can I verify the reader works?
For a keyboard wedge interface or USB/keyboard emulation interface reader: Get into any simple text editor - Notepad is recommended in Windows environment (locate it through Start/All programs/Accessories/Notepad). For a dual track reader, swipe a credit card, the reader should beep twice & there will be two lines of data show up in a Maximized Notepad window. (1 st line starts with % and 2 nd line starts with ';' both lines should end with the '?' for readers with the default output configuration). For a triple track reader, swipe a driver license card, which has a magnetic strip with all 3 tracks encoded. The reader should sound 3 beeps, and 3 lines of data will be displayed in Notepad window
For a RS232 serial, USB/RS232 emulation, USB/CDC interface reader:
Setup a HyperTerminal test session (Refer to General FAQ for detailed instruction). For a dual track reader, swipe a credit card through, the reader should beep twice & there will be two lines of the data show up in a Maximized HyperTerminal window. (1 st line starts with % and 2 nd line starts with ';' both lines should end with the ';' for readers with the default output configuration). For a triple track reader, swipe a driver license card, which has a magnetic strip with all 3 track data encoded on it. The reader should sound 3 beeps, and 3 lines of data is displayed on the Hyper Terminal Screen
1) If the reader doesn't beep when passing a magnetic card through it, please check and make sure the magnetic stripe is facing the correct side of the slot so that the stripe is contacting the reading head.
2) If the reader beeps correctly, but no data is shown in Notepad, please check to see if the correct software is being used for testing. If the answer is 'Yes' check the cable connection and testing software's configuration settings.
3) If the card is read and some of the card data displayed, please reset the reader & re-test.
4) If the reader is verified working, but it just does not work with your application software, please contact the software side for data format expected by the software side and re-configure the reader's output accordingly.

There is switch on the edge of the card to lock the card from read/write. Check if it locked and unlock.
This switch prevents anyone from trying to write/erase your data in the memory card.
Hope this is helpful
