There used to be serial-to-USB converters available... Perhaps you can get one of those. Then you could try top setup your IrDA device (InfraRed, if you have one) for your ActiveSync Connecttion.

I bought a new HP computer and it didnt have a serial port included in it. I purchased a secondary PCI Express card that gave me two serial ports. They are programmed in as com port 1 &2. They show...

Serial connection eh? Any reason you went with serial instead of parallel? The cards likely sell for about the same price or you could just buy a USB to parallel cable that would allow you to hook up a USB port of your computer to the parallel port on the printer.

The reason that it looks like the job disappears is likely due to the fact that the serial bus is not supporting bidirectional printing so the printer cannot acknowledge that it has received the job.

Need a cord to connect OLD computer to NEW printer

You can take the cord to Radio Shack and get a 24 pin serial dongle to 9 pin dongle. take a picture of the back of the computer and of the cable if you have and they can find an adapter for you. Thanks for using fix-ya and rate this if it was helpful.

Hooked scanner up to new computer. Reads bar code

It sounds like you are connecting to a serial port and you are trying to scan into a program that needs keyboard data. Download the "Softwedge" program from the Metrologic website.

I can't get a design to transfer to my sewing from the computer. I even hooked it up with a wire so the problem must be in the sewing machine.

Hi Callieprince,

I am sure i will be able to help you, but i need more info:
  • Do you connect directly from the machine serial port to an old computer serial port, or do you connect from the machine serial port, via a serial/usb adapter to usb?
  • Does your computer reconize the communication port?
  • If you click on "transfer to machine", there is a port icon, and also a bits per second icon, which can be changed by clicking on the little black upside down triangle. Which ones are you using?
If you can answer my questions, I will respond as soon as possible

Do I have a Serial Port on my acer window vista home premium mfg date 12-18-2007

Most newer computer do not have serial ports but there is such a thing as a USB to Serial converter that might work to load what you need to load. USB to Serial converters don't always work but they are worth a try

Serial port on HP Laserjet 4M Plus

buy the adaptor for this these ports are called lpt ports they make adapters to run down to size

they also make a lpt printer port switch this is connected easy connect from printer to switch one printer cord then buy 2 other printer cords to hook to other computers
this is not a converter this is a switch

the printer cords can either be made on spot at most computer store or bought from fry's electronics they always have these in stock the proper lines your looking for

Usb to serial adapter question

Try installing the Wacom USB drivers on the Mac. As I understand it, this adapter is designed to interact with devices that have their own serial drivers installed--such as a PDA, cell phone, camera, etc.--not necessarily with an input device, such as a drawing tablet, game controller, or pointing device. YMMV.
