• 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:

Hello to all,

I spent 2 hours setting up a new file for vacation last night. When I went to transfer it to my scanner, I kept getting a message that says something about checking my com port, making sure that the scanner is on...etc. I have several files in my computer and have had no trouble in the past transfering files from my scanner to computer or vice-versa. Now it will not let my do either. Is this something that can be fixed? What am I doing wrong? H.E.L.P.

Sounds like it cant find your com port. If using the usb cable do you have it set to com4 and are to cable connections solid.?

You may want to go into your My Computer -> Properties -> Hardware to check on the ports.

I am not using a USB. I will have to check my computer out when I get home to make sure that the com port has not changed. It has been working just fine prior to this transfer. I have not changed a thing. It is all on a lap top that I only use for my scanners (Windows 98 SE). Thanks for the response and any more are welcomed. I am do to leave early Saturday Morning for vacation.
