I scanned the pair barcode and scanned the default parameter. I opened up an excel file and started scanning som barcodes. The scanner seems to work meaning it scans the barcode and I get a short beep but the data is not transmitted. What gives?
I think you need a data base that relates the bar coded bars to what ever it is you set it up to be.
The scanner is just a machine that sees the lines and spases now you need the software that comnnects this machine and translates or shall I say compares what was scanned to what is in the database. Lets say your data is made of just 3 things.
lets say one will relate to blue next to red next to green
We have to scans of 3 different items and we need to know how many and what kind. Now we have a scanned that reads just these colors. our software is running and in standby polling the port waiting for info. We scan it is scensed by the scanned the scannedr sees a color and it will ID the color by a number 1 or 2 or 3 now it is in our data that a number 1-red was read. the endry is noted and that is incremented .... etc. get the drift is it a scensor and you need the data comarison program that is the root.

This 4 beeps also stays for communication error. Please check the connection to the cradle and also the connection between the cradle and PC.
You can start by pairing the scanner with cradle with the Pairing barcode, then defaulting the scanner to the standard settings - use the barcode "Set All Defaults" from the manual. Then select the right host type USB, RS232 or another.
After this procedure should the scanner work.
To get scanner to work on MC9090 WM5 and scan into excel, I had to install DataWedge From Here
You will need to install this through your ActiveSync
That will make it so you can scan directly into excel
The setup your data, the you can do a find, to find the cross ref
The default setting for this scanner is EAN13 enabled. This means that all 12 character barcodes will be changed to 13 characters by adding a zero in front.
How to Disable:
Open the manual that came with the scanner (it's available to download on the Cipherlab web page if you don't have it).
Find the UPCA Parameters barcodes (currently page 29). The next heading down is Convert to EAN13. You will see the disable and enable barcodes.
1) Scan Enter Setup Barcode (on practically every page of the manual at the bottom). The scanner will beep 6 times.
2) Scan the Convert to EAN13 Disable barcode. The scanner will beep once.
3) Scan the Update barcode at the bottom of the same page.
Your scanner should now read both 12 and 13 character barcodes correctly.
you are probably reading to a inteligent software package like Excell, which sees the inputted data as a number (so ignores leading zeros) you need to specify to the sytem that the incoming numbers are TEXT not numbers.
Prefix/Suffix Dialogs The Prefix/Suffix Dialogs allows configuration of DataWedge options. Two data entry fields are used to display and allow entry or editing of prefix and suffix strings. The prefix string, if present, is transmitted before the data for any barcode scanned. The suffix string, if present, is transmitted after the data for any barcode scanned. The following checkboxes are used to display and allow modification of various DataWedge options: Allow escapes in prefix/suffix (default = disabled) Enabling this option allows escape sequences to be embedded in prefix and suffix strings. Escape sequences allow non-textual data to be transmitted as part of the prefix or suffix string. All escape sequences begin with the backslash “\” character. The supported escape sequences are: \b Backspace \f Form feed \n New line (line feed) \r Carriage return
