10 usb ports and no com ports, what kind of computer is that? You could install a com card, they are very inexpensive and easy to install. Sounds like though you have the usb adapter you need to get that working. Maybe think about upgrading the computer during the summer too.:santa:

Dan, in the manual selection my choices are, none, and comm 3.



Bradley,

So when you tried to connect to comm 3 you get the 8002 error?

When there is not USB adaptor attached does Comm 3 go away?

Dan,

the comm 3 is still there when i take the adapter off. I get an (8012) error.

Bradley,

What that says to me is that the adaptor is not working correctly or the drivers are not installed properly. Every USB/Serial adaptor that I seen will create a new comm port when installed and that port will go away when it is removed.

When you say that that the Comm3 is still there when you take the adaptor off, make sure that you stop and restart the Hardware Utility after you take the adaptor off. The Hardware Utility only checks to see which comm ports exists when it is started. It will not notice changes in the number of comm ports while it is running.

Did you get drivers with the USB/Serial converter that had to be installed. Can you confirm that no new comm port appears when you plug the USB adaptor into the PC.

Well either the adaptor isn't really working or the USB port is not really working. Do other USB devices work in that USB port. Is there any "Dong" when you plug the adaptor in to signifiy that a new USB device was detected?

Go into the control panel, then the "system
icon, then find the "device manager" and see if it's listed in the hardware list with a yellow exclamation point. That would indicate something is up with the driver. Windows doesn't have USB to serial drivers by default, so you'd definately have to load one. It should have came with a disc, but, if not, you can probably get it from the vendor's web site.
