Now, the scanner that I have has a serial port.
When I connect it to the serial port on my desktop, it is working fine.
The problem is, I have to do the programming part in my laptop.
My laptop does not have any serial ports, so I purchased a connector that will convert it to usb.
I tested the connector in the desktop, all ps/2 devices (ex. mouse) works fine.
But when it comes to the barcode scanner, the computer cannot read the device.
Which is weird.
It can read the device when I connect it to the serial port, but it does not read the device when I connect it to the USB via a connector or converter. Any ideas?
