    Anyone have any recommendations or success stories with any USB to serial adapter?
    I have a MacBook Pro and am running Windows XP as my Parallels guest OS. I need to use the USB to Serial adapter in Windows.
    I am currently trying to use an older iConcepts PDA USB adapter. It is a USB 1.0 device. It seems to get recognized by both OSX and WinXP, but it doesn't seem to work in Windows. The right drivers are installed, and the device is recognized by WinXP and shows up properly in device manager.
    Thanks
    Mike

    Thanks for the input. Turns out I found a program that runs on the Mac side of things.
    I needed this to program my Pronto Pro remote. The Philips Pronto Pro SW only works
    on Windows, but there is a program that is platform independent called Tonto that
    works on the Mac.
    I may still try to pick up one of the brands you guys listed.
    Thanks again.
    Mike
