- Well, I went to buy an older Belkin USB to serial via Craigslist, on
the way stopped by a thrift store and found.... a USB to serial
converter! A no-name in clear blue body and clear insulation on the
cable. Very compact.
Glad I went ahead and bought the Belkin, though. Because my Warp 13a
won't connect successfully through the blue no-name, MPLab says
unsupported programmer. Through the old clunky big Belkin, it works
I think I'll order the one from DealExtreme because it is so compact,
and hope it works for this.
