Problem with USB to serial converter
Hopefully someone has some insight.
I use a USB to serial converter to feed the GPS stream from my Onstar Interface . My Car PC does not have a serial port, so this is what I am stuck with.
Now, If I boot my computer before starting my truck (and sending an NMEA stream through the converter) my CarPC boots fine. If I boot after starting truck, CarPC interprets Stream and converter as a USB mouse. No matter what I do, disabling, etc, it always happens. If I unplug the converter, it again boots fine.
Is there a way to set what the USB device recognizes as in XP Pro? Like I said, if I disable the USB mouse device, it still boots recognizing as a mouse, not a serial port.
Anyone have any tips?
