OK I'm Having Problems Trying To Hook-Up A KPC-3 To My Computer, And/Or, Finding A Program That Will Reconize It On A USB Drive. My Operating System Is Windows XP. The Cable I'm Using Is Serial (DB-25) To USB. Can Someone Out There Help Me With This Problem. Thank You

Ed, I don't have a KPC3, but faced a similar problem with my AEA PK88 and PK232. I have been successful with UIview. The first thing to remember with many of the programs you must select the proper comm port. The best way to find out which one you have, is to remove your usb adapter and then go to Device Manager. When you plug in the USB to serial adapter, the new comm port will appear. The packet programs may have a limited choices of comm ports, so you may have to rearrange your assignments (This maybe needed if you have a usb printer, camera, mouse, keyboard etc).
