HondaLogger w/ Dell Laptops

I know that Hondata says that the HondaLogger software does not work with Dell serial ports.

However, so far, I have not encountered a Dell Laptop that didn't work. My work uses nothing but Dell equipment, so any Dell Laptop I see, I will try and test them.

So far, my Dell Latitude D600 works just fine w/ HondaLogger.

It also works fine for me on my work's Dell Inspiron 1150.

Both laptops have Windows XP SP2 loaded.

Lets make a list of what Dell laptops the HondaLogger software works with, and which one it doesn't work with.

WORKS:
Dell Latitude D600


DOESN'T WORK:
(BLANK)


The laptops below don't come w/ serial port but work fine with USB to Serial Adapter.

Dell Inspiron 1100
Dell Inspiron 1150

I'm using a Dell Inspiron 1100, but there is no serial port. I'm using the Keyspan USB to serial adapter to datalog with no issues though.

Yes. PrecisionH23a and I had HORRIBLE connectivity issues with the Iogear USB to serial adapter. The ONLY one I've had luck with is the Keyspan.

keyspan

You are describing exactly what PrecisionH23a and I were experiencing with the iogear adapter. Get the keyspan.
