    A friend rushed out and brought a HP computer and did not think that his barcode scanner is RS-232 ,
    and the HP PC does not have com ports , so he needs a PCI Com's adapter card..

    DSE does not list any from the search I made.

    Is it still possible to get a card..?

    I bought one off trademe a few months ago, you can also get USB ones
    (which DSE sell and are a lot cheaper).

    Misread your first email for pcmcia not pci, anyway there are pci serial
    cards all over the place. My post about there being USB ones of course
    is still valid.

    The Software only support RS-232, old software and will cost heaps to upgrade it..

    Some of the USB <-> 9 pin serial adapters work fine, some dont, some here
    might be able to recommend one. I think some of them even have DOS support.

    I had the same issue and managed to find a card.

    $50 + GST + Postage/Courier charga and I can get you one.

    Unmunge my reply address if you are interested.

    Thanks for that..

    Problem is that I can't install it, as I forgot that the PC is still under warrantee, but a local PC
    shop has a similar card and can install it for $25..
