    Any more ideas?

    The Bit rates and paritys all match...Where would i find time-out settings if there are any?

    Most of the previous suggestions should work. It may be an issue when you change log ins from Admin to User. Check the port numbers & Baud rate are the same in hardware manager & SIMS. Log in as the User then try & make any changes then. You may be promted to sign in as Admin when making the changes. Seen this a few times. No rhyme or reason sometimes for the prob. Just Windows being a pain....

    We had exactly the same problem with a Keyspan. We couldn't fix it, and in the end we installed a PCI serial card.

    ^^^ There's your problem... never turn working stuff off... especially when it is SIMS related!

    Have you tried the keyspan jobbie on another machine or with a different device? Have you completely uninstalled the drivers and re-installed them?

    @Little-Miss Did you ever resolve this? Experiencing similar problems myself with a US Robotics USB to serial adapter... On a laptop, anyone know of an alternative, reliable method of getting a serial port other than via a USB adapter? No PCMCIA slots, so USB was really all I had to go on!

    With your ref to PCMCIA slots I'm assuming that your on a laptop. Might be worth looking at a docking station if the laptop supports it which usually come with the extras like a serial port.

    Actually, I have a docking station for the laptop, but sadly no serial port.

    No problem, thanks anyway! I'm working on some OMR-related projects and spotted your thread; if I come across a successful method I'll post it here for others.
