As a new user, and a new subscriber to RR, how, or can you, load the info on RR directly into my RS 97. The trunking setup is FM to me.

I just downloaded WIN97. How do I interface it with the database info?

Isn't there a help file? I don't have win97 so I'm not sure.

Interface cable

Yes...I have an RS #20-047 cable. It has an orange case inline. Is that the correct one? I read somewhere that the RS #20-048 cable doesn't work.

Have you installed the drivers for the cable (from the CD that should've been included with the cable)?

If so, when you plug the cable into a USB port on your computer, Windows will assing a "COM port" to the cable. To determine the COM port assignment, you'll likely need to go into Device Manager (right-click on the My Computer icon on the desktop, select "Manage", then click on the "Device Manager" item). Look under "Ports (COM & LPT)". There should be an entry for a "USB Serial Port". The COM port number for that entry is what you need.

In Win97, if you're using that program, go to Configuration -> Serial Port. Select the COM port number determined above. Win97 will then let you download from / upload to the scanner (look at the "Scanner" menu).
