    I have a psion 5mx which I haven't used for a bit, but now need to use.
    Problem is that my new computer doesn't have a serial port.
    I bought an adapter, but the psion still won't "talk" to the port.
    I've got the settings to read the right port, but no go.

    any ideas of what I need to do to make this work?
    thanks

    It's possible that it simply ISN'T going to work........

    gee thanks.

    That doesn't take me any further to resolving my problem though.

    I'm sorry, I didn't mean that in a bad way.....there are many adapters that simply won't work on newer systems. Even some older systems didn't like a PS/2 to USB connector for the keyboard.

    Since this is an older hardware specific question I think you would have better luck checking this forum: Psion You may find the answers you need.
