Not at first. Windows recommended me a web driver which I installed. It did not work. I'll try it from the CD and see what happens.
The USB to Serial Adapter I am using an Aluratek one (AUS100)
Update: The CD was absolutely no [insert bad words here] help! I doubt the CD even had the driver to begin with. Now I am trying the Aluratek website. If that doesn't work - it's going back to Staples for a refund (if I can get one).
Update #2: After reinstalling the Aluratek driver again, I restarted the computer. Then I get an "Installing device driver software" message, and taking a long time do so, I finally get a success (COM 4). Running SAM-BA, I select com4 and nothing happens. So I try running it again, and get only com3 (which I was unsuccessful before).
I plug the cord in another port - it is COM 5. So I run SAM-BA again and nothing happens.
I am running Vista and it supposed to work on Vista.
MySamba doesn't read the port at all.
I am so frustrated - it worked when someone else does it.
(The next computer I buy will be a Mac - I am getting sick of Windows)
