        Comments about Meade Telescope to PC Bridge Cable:

        The firmware in my LX-200 corrupted. It was then necessary to download the current software from the Meade website into the telescope. However, my laptop does not have a serial port; therefore, I had to purchase the adapter that allows the connection of a USB port to a serial interface. It works great! Enough said.

          Did what it needed to do! Just wish they would include in the software package, and not hit you up for another 40 dollars!

            I wanted to hook up my Meade LXD-75 SN-8AT to my new laptop but didn't have a serial port so I ordered this adapter which worked perfectly in Windows Vista.

              USB interface cable with Vista

              By Carol Hazlett

              from Undisclosed

              Comments about Meade Telescope to PC Bridge Cable:

              Since buying a new computer with Windows Vista I can not get the USB interface to work. Vista has removed all the tools that were previously used to troubleshoot com port problems. I have tried to find answers in many of the user forums for Meade telescopes but while a lot of people are having this problem nobody seems to have the answer. Meade does not have the answer either, they said they were "working on it", but gave me no timeline.
