Re: Usb or serial data logger
- Some have reported issues with the USB version however I have been running it for years.
The problem with the serial solution is that if you do not have a real built-in serial port, you are just adding another layer of possible problems.
Even the IOGear USB to serial adapter is having issues under Windows 7 but seems Ok under XP.
If it were me, I would try the USB version for that setup.
