My new laptop doesn't have a Serial RS232 connection but I use one occassionally to download data to a Satellite Receiver.

I've bought a RS232 to USB cable which was supplied without a driver. I've tried installing using XP's integrated drivers without success. Can anyone suggest where a suitable driver might be sourced? I've tried click here

Interesting link. Many thanks Staurtli. I tried all combinations of the Prolific driver without success, however I know the driver does work because it's used on my Siemens mobile to USB cable without a problem - but maybe the problem is two devices wanting to use the same driver but not at the same time? In any case the RS232 to USB cable when installed shows under Human Interface Devices and not under Ports!
