CoCo-to-PC Serial Data Cable

Hello I have just received my CoCo-to-PC Serial Data Cable. Is there some documentation on how to use it to transfer programs from my PC to the CoCO…

    Sounds like you’re describing the drivewire cable. All the software for that is at cloud9tech.

      Actually, he’s talking about the unique brand of cable I build and the DVD that I sell here. My cable’s specs are on this site as well if anyone wants to compare to anyone elses version of a serial cable. I do believe mine is more compatible with stubborn PC programs but I could be wrong.

      My cable is solid molded on the PC side (no pieced together crap) and on the CoCo end is a shiny brand new 4-pin DIN plug.

      I can make about 6 or 7 more of these cables before my supplies run out.

    Ah Ha!!! So it wasn’t just me. I thought I was going mad. Thanks for update.

    Also, the last time this happened to me, my posts were deleted the next day. Did you delete them?

    — I hope this get’s posted in the right thread —

      Nope… it didn’t!!! ARRRRRGGGG!!!

      Your fix didn’t work Roger. LOL

      Yes, I deleted them because there is no way to relocate comments unless I do surgery on the database.

      Oddly enough, it’s not happening to everybody and it seems to be happening more with the same people.

      What browser are you using?

        Hey Roger,

        I’m using Firefox. I thought it might be related, so I cleared all my cache to see if it would help, it didn’t. I’m running only one add-on which is “ADDBLOCK”. This is in addition to all the standard add-on’s.

        I have noticed that if i reply directly to a post such as this (i.e. selecting “reply” in the hyperlink ), it works fine. But if I post a reply in the box at the bottom directly, it get’s posted in the wrong thread.

        I hope this additional info helps.

          I’m using Seamonkey which is a kissing cousin to Firefox and I’m not having redirection problems.
