Two Way Switchers For Dvi And For Usb / Ps2 Keyboard, Mouse

I'm looking to control which computer can send data to one of my monitors. I use dvi cables, and would like something nice but not too costly! Also, i would love it if i could do the same thing to my keyboard and mouse. It's a logitech set with wireless and i believe a wired option - any ideas short of popping the logitech wireless donggy back and forth (which isn't horrible).

Ps2 Network Adapter Walmart

I was wondering is the ps2 network adapter for online gaming was still available for sale via the official ps2 site, or some other place (like walmart or kmart) i've been looking all over for a place that sells them (not using ebay/ internet to buy one). Is that item no longer on the market? Or is it still for sale. Also this is probable a foolish question, but is their the same thing for ps3, that i could use on a ps2? I'm not well informed on how the systems both work.

Convert Printer Cable Usb

Parallel printer cable to usb, xp, and the hp laserjet 5l. I am attempting to hook up an hp laserjet 5l to my desktop running xp. When i plug in the parallel cable (which came with useless software, ebay cheapy), windows installs usb printing capability, but does not recognize the 5l. I have tried downloading the drivers from hp, and using windows versions of both the 5l and 6l. I have also tried removing the usb printing support and reinstalling it. I am out of ideas. After reading through all of the threads on this forum and others, i am stuck. Note: i have had newer printers hooked up to this machine that have printed via usb fine, but not with this cable.

Convert Usb To Firewire Or Vice Versa

Is it possible to convert usb to firewire or vice versa? I only have 1 free pci slot, but i need both types. I really do not want to buy a combo card because i already have a usb 2. 0 card and a firewire card that i can use. The reason i have both is that i got a usb 2. 0 card because i needed more usb slots for my compact flash drive and other things, but then for christmas i got a camcorder that doesn't use usb 2. 0 so i bought a firewire card. Anyway, i really think i need the extra 2. 0 ports again.

Trackball Explorer Jumpy After Using Usb To Ps2 Converter

I have this 1-yr old microsoft trackball explorer 1. 0. It was doing great, until recently i needed a mouse for my other computer. I used the usb-to-ps2 converter on this trackball, and i think it messed it up inside. The mouse cursor is now jumping around and becomes "unplayable". It says it's ps2/usb compatible on the bottom of the mouse. I use the latest mouse driver from microsoft and cleaned the trackball. I wonder is there a "fix" available?

Scsi To Usb Adapter

A few times now i've been stuck wishing that i had a scsi to usb adapter so i could image or pull data from a scsi drive. Currently, i just throw an old hba in my pc and hook up the drive that way. The drives are always 68 or 80 brings up a few hits and it looks like these were popular years ago, but even then they were very slow and most of the time only had 50 pin connections on them. They seemed to be often used with the old iomega zip and jazz drives and only supported usb 1. 1. I'd like to add one to my recovery kit if possible, but i can't find much info. Thoughts?

Usb Charger Adapter

While in my local staples, pilfering the clearance bin, i found an interesting cell phone /wire connector set which had an adapter cable that looked like it might just fit in my kindle. After buying it for a rip-off price of 50 cents, it turned out to be a perfect fit, and it doubled as a usb -> mini-usb connector too. Basically it is an: usb -> miniusb + power adapter that fits into kindle power adapter slot. The reason why usb -> power adapter is better then charging from usb -> mini-usb is that you don't have to goto usb drive mode (which prevents you from reading), when connecting with mini-usb connector alone. This means you can keep reading while charging your kindle next to your laptop via usb port!

As a bonus, it seems this wire is both plentiful and cheap on ebay (or if you're too lazy you can find it in most office-supply/ electronics stores)


But you can buy them on ebay if you search specifically for:

"Palm zire usb cable". Tons to be had for $4-5 dollars shipped. Make sure you get the zire 72 or tungsten type and not the wrong type of palm cable. Note: though i already scored the belkin version of this cable, i managed to find on ebay a better retractable version for $4. 50:

(Note: still waiting for this one to arrive, but it should fit, and i will update thread if it doesn't fit)

With a retractable version, that means i can charge my kindle anywhere i want, bring a spare charge cable in my pocket to plug into usb, and transfer stuff onto kindle if necessary. This is the specific product i bought for 50 cents (if you want to scrounge around your local staples clearance bins).
