Yeah the end piece is gone... The main problem is the COM port error at this point.

Did you install the right driver? Can you see it in device manager?

Yes the driver installs correctly and the device shows up as

"Prolific USB-to-Serial Comm Port (COM4)"

Under Ports (COM & LPT)

Double check you have the speed / error correction etc set properly?

Was your cable detected before you installed the drivers? Are you using the original driver from the driver cd or some driver you thought might work that you found in some obscure place on the internet :ph34r: .

Due to different manufacturers, different CA-42 cables using different drivers :ph34r: , that is why we recommend using original drivers for that cable :whistle:

Uninstalled driver. Used one on disk. "Unable to open COM3. Please check your port settings" 0.o

edit: I got mad and just tried several times and it worked. Now I have to figure out what the white green and black wires do... As I said before red is connected to nothing just follows a long for no reason. Unless it broke 0.o

edit2: and now its not again.... I really need to figure out which wire is which so if I do get it working I can just do it.

Try trial and error. Do Loopback test. Select wire 1&2, If not work, try 2&3, if still not work, then 1&3 is Rx &Tx, with the remaining one GND. :)

I tried that but I get that com error 95% of the time. And then I think it might be because of a certain wire combination but then it fails on one I already tried.

I have come to the conclusion that this cable is at fault. Another wire just fell out >;(

Does anyone have an ebay link to one with 3 wires that is actually easy to take apart?

Maybe get another cable. The wires should be easy to separate (and wires should not just fell out :ph34r: ). It should look like this http://www.msfn.org/board/index.php?showtopic=128807&view=findpost&p=889486

Yeah If anyone has an ebay link for a 3 wired cable that would be great. This one looks good in the display picture http://cgi.ebay.com/CA-42-NOKIA-3120-3200-3220-6020-USB-DATA-CABLE-CD-/160483141831?pt=PDA_Accessories&hash=item255d8a68c7

but then bellow it shows the nasty sealed in usb one with the panda mini disk like the one I currently have.

I've just bought an rs232 to tty adapter from Tronisoft in order to fix my bricked drive. I have powering the device with 5v & 3.3v straight off my PCs PSU (the device led lights up) & have put a jumper across both TX & RX to create a loop-back, however, when I use hyperterminal or minicom (on Ubuntu) I get no echoed response.

I am setting the config to that of the original post.

The port is showing as COM1 on windows and TTYS0 on ubuntu.

Anyone have any ideas?

Very cool I'll order that one unless someone can tell me if this one is good.

Hello All,

I have a 7200.11 500 Meg Drive that upon a reboot is no longer being recognized by the bios. When I attach to the drive I enter a /2 and receive the F3 2> prompt, when I attempt a Z I get a error LED:000000CC FAddr:0025BF67. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
