• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I am fairly new to the scanning world. I have a Pro 96 that I am trying to program with Win96. I am using Radio Shack cable, 20-047. For some reason it is recognizing the scanner when I hook it up. Any thoughts? Is there a driver that I am missing???

I'm pretty sure you meant '(not) recognizing', and I think you hit the nail on the head. You need the driver for the cable to make it replicate a COM port.

That's a pretty old cable SKU, but I *think* it came with a CD with drivers on it...Mike

Thanks!!! I think I am just going to purchase a newer cable. The CD only has drivers for Windows 2000.
