    there is a newer driver than that one version 5.5 from their website seems to work better with serial boards, you get the option of installing serial drivers as well as USB worth a try I would scrap the becta box there just a pain in the bum!

    Thats right, but the serial part of 5.2.7 is the exact same as the one in 5.5 - so in theory, it's the same serial driver.

    Just didn't want to add an extra step in there in case the serial part wasn;t chosen in the 5.5 driver!

    I forgot that the board may have a usb B connector on it as well.

    Did you receive the lead I sent? if not still give that a try when you get it.

    I did go round and convert all of my boards which were originally installed as serial boards to usb by using and a to b lead.

    Happy days! - Glad you managed to get it sorted! - Sounds like there is either a problem with the Serial connectors on the Becta box, or the serial port on the PC - the main thing though is that it's now useable again!
