I have a USB device that uses 'serial' commands over USB. I also have a
serial device that I hook to a USB converter. I use the Keyspan High
Speed Serial adapter because I had problems with trying to use two
others. I talked to keyspan and they said to only use the high speed
one. Since then I have had other devices to hook up which are only
serial but the Keyspan High Speed Serial adapter works great with them
It is the Keyspan driver that makes the Mac think or act like a USB to
the computer but allows the Serial to work over it. Two devices that I
use come with the same serial/usb driver as what comes with the
So use the keyspan one......
