Butel ARC software (30 day trial version)
The serial cable works jut fine provided you have a serial port on your computer (not available on most newer laptops)
The USB-1 that you mentioned is a cord and USB-SERIAL converter all rolled into one. Separate converters can be had very cheap but if you have no cable at all to start with the USB-1 would be a great way to get hooked up.Thanks, yah I don't have that port on my lap top.
