View Full Version : Using a serial port

Hi,
A friend (now overseas) has sold me her old digital camera, no manual, but software, connects to a computer via serial port. I use USB connections, how do I use a serial port. Do I plug it in when the computer is going like USB?
Thanks so much
Heather

There should be a serial lead with the camera which you need to connect to the serial port on your computer.(leave it connected)
Load the software, if you havent already.Plug the camera into the serial cable and using the software you can upload the images from the camera to your computer. You can leave the serial cable plugged into your computer all the time.
