Garmin Usb Serial Driver


I bought a usb to serial adapter so that i can plug in my garmin forerunner 201 (only has a serial connector) to my new computer (doesn't have a serial port). So i bought this kind of nondescript adapter online, and it arrived without any drivers. I thought all usb-to-serial drivers would be the same - but apparently not! I googled for drivers, found 1, 001 different drivers available, and the 2 or 3 that i downloaded did not work. How do i go about finding the right driver?

Usb To Serial Adapter

I bought this adapter, usb to serial, now the program i was using gives me an option of ports com1 thru com4. But using the usb port it will not recognize a com port. Is there a way to direct the usb port to act as a com port and assign it to 1 thru 4?

Any Way To Use Serial Port In Safe Mode ?

I have an older ibm (thinkpad 500?) Using windows 2000 that crashes randomly. I only use this computer to run an automatic key machine in my truck that uses the serial com port. The computer runs fine in safe mode, but i can't link it to the key machine because the serial port is disabled in safe mode. Is there any way to enable the serial com port in safe mode?

Serial / Com Port Device Managing

Ok i have an old old ibm thinkpad laptop that has one physical serial port. I have a program that uses the serial port but the program says it is in use. Now in device manager under com ports in the adavanced port settings there is a list of com port numbers listing 1 through 256. This is where i get lost. If i have one physical serial port then why is there a list of 256? Can i share this one port with whatever is using it currently and how? I just want to disable whatever is using this com1 port and use it just for this program. But if i cant then i need to share it somehow. Ive messed with the list of com ports changing them to higher numbers but when i go to chose that particular com port in the program it says that one is in use.

Serial Port Communication Issue

I have two identical mb's both using xp pro w/sp2
They are the foxconn n570sm2aa. With two different serial devices (a fta receiver and a rf signal level meter) i have to first disable the serial port, then re-enable it to be able to communicate with either device. If i don't, i get a error message. My previous mb had a nforce2 chipset and used 2k. I had no issue with two different fta receivers using the serial port. With another piece of test equipment, there is a different problem. The software locks up after 5 seconds after hitting the 'start' button to try to connect with the device (after the s/w is opened). I believe this is aseparate issue since the disable/enable doesn't help. (There was no issue with the previous mb and o/s. )

Any ideas about why i have to disable, then re-enable the port everytime?
Btw; no conflicts in dm and it is the stock windows driver that is loaded.

Loopback Test For Serial Ports

Does anyone have, or know where i can find schematic/pinout + software source code (any language) to go with it for the loopback test for the serial ports?

As i understand it, there are several ways to do loopback plug for serial port test, and therefore software must be specific. I found a lot of pinouts for loopback plugs for various existing commercial diagnostics software tools, but i couldn't find any free software that do these tests. And i was sure i saw basic source years ago, but now when i need it i can't find anything

Hp Survey Asking To Use Printer Serial Number

How do i know if an hp survey is a real hp survey, they're asking to use my printer serial number? The best way for you to go, is to just do not do the survey. And, by the way hp surveys do not ask for your printer serial number nor any personal questions, as they play no part in the questionnaire.

Serial Connection On Server A Catastrophe Risk ?

I have a time-clock that communicates to the host computer via serial connection. I was told by the vendor that it is not recommended to have the serial connection connected to our server. He mentioned such things as lightening, and the card being connected directly through to the motherboard, not a serious concern but an added risk and vulnerability to the server. How correct is this assumption? Is this dangerous in any way?

Installing With A Serial Ata Hard Drive

A friend recommended i buy a sata hd with my new computer. Now i can't get my operating system floppies and cd to recognize it. In my bios it says my primary master and primary slave ides are blank. My secondary master is my cdrom and my secondary slave is my zip drive. The 120gb sata drive is at third master. It recognizes it in bios as a hard drive when i did a hd detection. I am trying to install like this: i have a win98 boot floppy that i put in first. I run fdisk to create a dos partition and then put in a win98 cd and install win98. After win98 is installed, i put in my win2000 upgrade cd and upgrade the os to win2000. So it seems like it's not creating a dos partition on the right drive but when i ran format c:, it formatted a 120gb hd. And i have no idea what other drive it would be creating a dos partition on. But when i put the win98 cd in the drive and run setup.exe, it says i need at least 735909909 bytes of space to install windows.

How To Install Pci Serial Port Card ?

My pci serial port cards were fried by a lightening strike.couldn't buy the same combo (1 x 3 port card and 1 x 1 port card) so i installed two 2nd hand cards - 1 x 2 port card and 1 x 1 card and decided to used the onboard serial port to make up for the other lost port. Windows 2k detected the cards and tried to install them.couldn't find any drivers on the c drive or installation disk. Dial up is a total nightmare for this machine. I can't find any detailed tutorials or step by step info on how to install a pci serial port card. Do you need to obtain and install drivers (can't seem to located them as negligable info on card itself) or aren't they needed and instead you cancel any automatic attempt to install new device and just go to another area of the computer and configure that?

Connect Computer To Tv Through Serial Port A/v Cable

How will be the performance if we connect computer to tv through serial port a/v cable?

Answer:-

Probably pretty bad. Both rs-232 and composite video are antiquated and considered legacy standards for computers. You don't say exactly what you're doing, but try to avoid using those deprecated connections if possible.

Driver Problems For Dell Usb Multimedia Keyboard

I recently purchased a dell usb multimedia keyboard, part number 310-7940, for my dimension 4600 desktop. The keyboard was plugged into a functioning usb port and the computer was rebooted. Shortly after startup the green lights on the keyboard were illuminated breifly, then turned off. When windows started up, the keyboard does not work but the "found new hardware" wizard comes up and recognizes the device as "dell usb keyboard. "

However, it cannot find the drivers or the necessary software for the keyboard to work, and fails to "install" the device. I tried downloading driver r44838, but running this driver simply opens the system volume control. I also tried clearing the nvram, restoring the system to a previous date, updating the windows service pack, and updating the chipset driver. None of these actions seemed to work. Any help would be much appreciated.

Ide (ultra Ata) To Serial Ata Adapter - How Will It Work?

I just bought a brand new 120 gb 7200rpm samsung sata hard drive to replace my 80gb maxtor 5400rpm ata hard drive because it was acting up and i decided to get a new one. Anyways, i just got it in the mail and to my dissapointment i have ide connections and a ata interface/motherboard. I looked online to find an adapter and i did find a few but dont know which one/kind to get. I dont want to buy a new motherboard or a 80$ sata card or anything. I have ultra ata and want to connect my serial ata hardrive to it. But these adapters im looking at i think work for serial ata motherboards to hook to ultra ata hardrives. Or can it work the other way around? I think i got the jist of it and can hook it up if i did get one. Can i use my ide cable to hook onto the 40 pin adapter slot then the other end into my motherboard or does it have to go somewhere else. Im just a little confused thats all from a picture i saw on a website that hooked one up. Can anyone help me here?
