ooops, im sure there was one before

Post by rredbeak » Wed Aug 04, 2010 7:43 pm

ok,my 996T arrived on time etc. Absolutely love it but back in learning mode again.

Looked on my comp [tower not laptop] only to find no com port, Now i bought it new and THOUGHT it had one.

Anyways,Will a USB/Com port cable suffice on the 996T please,Cause, My laptop doesnt have one either.

I have Trunkview and proscan,will the usb/com plug be an issue?
Cheers Rod

Just make sure it uses either the FTDI chipset, or the Prolific chipset.

Jaycar Cat No. XC-4834 is Brand X, and only rated as USB 1.1, and is only $26.90

Dick Smith Cat. No XH 3331 is a Belkin brand, and $79.94

Harvey Norman also sell Belkins.

None of those dealers specify the Chipset.

I've had trouble with some, but bought a Jaycar one recently and it works really well.

TY Guys, i HONESTLY appreciate the help.

I did a search of jaycar/dse and found both the above mentioned ones,but they say nothing of chipset.

But as Ross says hes not had issues with jaycar and its cheap,ill go with that.

Ive noted the jaycar part number also.

Cheers and MANY thanks.
