Frequently Asked Questions (faq)

Q: Does this converter require an IRQ?
A: No, the USB controller on the motherboard is the only item that requires an IRQ. If you enable DOS box compatibility, then it will pull an IRQ.

Q: How do I plug a 9-pin into the 25-pin serial connector ?
A: Pico Technology supplies a 25 to 9 pin converter with each serial port product.

Q: My serial device will not respond, what do I do?
A: Verify that the serial device is using the USB Comm Port.

Q: What drivers do I need for my PC?
A: Drivers are supplied on the floppy disk, included with the USB adaptor.

Q: Why would I want to purchase this converter ?
A: It frees up your serial port for other devices such as Palm Pilots, and other Pico products. It is hot pluggable with other serial peripherals and it does not require an IRQ.
