Have two computers to connect to a printer. One computer uses a serial the other a parallel port. The printer has only one usb port. Is there a dual cable or adapter available to make the transition?


You won't find a cable or adapter that will allow both computers to connect simultaneously to the printer. This is because the printers would interfere with each other's signals. That said, adapters are available, but not cheap. Again, the problem is the language that each type of connector uses is different. On top of that, chances are that the printer software would not allow you to select a serial port output on the printer knowing it does not support serial port interface. Same issue with the parallel port. You apparently are using very old computers if all you have is serial or parallel port outputs. You may be able to get a USB card to install in the computer(s) to provide you with a USB interface. This would be cheaper than attempting to get a pair of adapter cables and more likely to work better as well. Often the adapter cables don't work right and will cause slow printing. Also, you CAN get a switching box that can connect two USB computer ports to a single printer.

With AUX, can i use my laptop to down load music


Depends on the laptop, and yes aux and usb are different and not interchangable. USB is a digital serial interface and the aux is an analog interface.

Printing data from another port


depends on the printer network interfaces. does it use usb port only or does it have an ethernet interface. What do you mean by another port ? Do you mean another computer like two computers to one printer?
If it has only usb and you want to share the printer to many p.c's you can buy an ethernet to usb print server device and network the printer to many computers via IP .

How do I connect a 180e serial cable to my usb computer when Artlink and CPS software specify serial port?


I've not successfully managed this ... trouble-is that although you can get USB-to-serial converters, most computers that only have USB ports do not properly 'recognise' COM ports, which is what your Artlink software expects to talk to. I still use an old PC with a 'proper' 9-pin serial port on the back in order to talk to the old Artista range of machines. One of the drawbacks of a 'throwaway' PC industry that expects the rest of the world to continually update everything in response to new interface standards!

Hi, I have a considerable amount of video footage captured on my Sony trv 140e which I wish to transfer onto computer then edit. I have the usb cable and attempted to connect without success....ie pc...


This type of camera usually downloads better with a Firewire (Sony call this i.Link) connection. Some mini-DV and D8 cameras only use the USB connection (if they have one) for stills and can ONLY download video by Firewire. This is because you have to play the tape into the computer, not just copy a file. I

Most PCs have a USB port, but no Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.

Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. My camera came with the correct lead.

There is a Sony tutorial page for downloading at THIS LINK You will need to select Windows as the operating system, then Digital8 as the camera type, then select the type of connection. As you will see, the USB option warns that it won't work with many cameras, and you are strongly recommended to use i.Link (which everyone else calls Firewire).

Power surge on hub port a usb device has exceeded the power limits of its hub port there is nothing connected to my computer


I don't know how old your system might be or how many USB controllers it has on the motherboard, but understand this...

Theoretically, one USB port can support up to 999 "daisy chained" devices.

With that said...the way a USB port is implemented on a motherboard, manufacturers enable two or four ports to be working off of one USB interface. Those ports you see on the front of your computer are most likely connected to just one USB interface on the actual motherboard and that's why you always see computers with USB ports located together in pairs.

With that in mind, you're USB ports are connected to what is referred to as a "hub"(that motherboard interface), which only outputs so much power. If one device or many devices attached to this "hub" exceed the power output of this "hub" then it will either back down to USB 1.1 speeds or it won't function at all. That is why some USB accessories require their own wall adapter, because the USB can't supply all the necessary power for it.

So one of two things has happened, either your USB port is fried or you introduced a new USB item to the "hub" that surpasses the power requirements of what your USB hub can output once you plug in your mp3 player.

You can troubleshoot by unplugging all un-necessary USB equipment and try only that port again. My assumption is that the USB hub is fine but the actual usb port you use might be damaged.

Good luck.

To transfer video to your computer from the ZR100, you will need to connect the camera to the computer via the firewire interface. The ZR100 does not have a USB interface.
