hi all

is possible to buy or make a cable so i can connect a usb cable to my laptop through the serial port, as i know you can buy a cable to convert serial into usb, i just need it the other way round.

forgot the link, silly cheap...

ok thank you maj and mat, but them cables look like they convert serial to usb, i have a usb cable that i need to plug into my laptop through the serial port as the laptop does not have any usb ports, so i need a usb to serial adapter

just swap the USB cable for the ones shown in the link , no need for adapter cos its already got a USB end which you can plug straight into the USB device...
