10 Install latest drivers for the programming cable

2) make sure that the Comport showing in the software matches the the 1 Shown in Device manager

Also what software are you using?

Did you configure the ports on the scanner? I'm pretty sure the Easier to Read manual has information on this...Mike

One reason that ARC15 can't auto detect the scanner might be that the scanner ports are not set up, as I wrote earlier. Did you read the Easier to Read manual? Like I mentioned, you need to configure the ports on the scanner before the PC will connect.

Here's the link...

Easier to Read BCT-15 Scanner Manual

See the 'Settings Menu' section, then 'Set Serial Port'...HTH...Mike
