    I too made a cable following the instructions on this sight and have the same problem.

    If the PC is powered up and I go to plug in the serial cable the PC will reboot. It reboots just fine. I don't think it is working though because it doesn't find a serial mouse of any device connected to the serial port.

    I double and triple checked the wiring and all seems fine. Don't know why it reboots like that.

    i've had that happen before, sometimes the inital power draw of the unit is high, will cause my opus 150 to restart, I just make sure not to plug the XMD in while the psu is running.

    Is Pin 3 and Pin 8 on the mini din connector supposed to be connected when the cable is plugged in?

    When the cable is totally unplugged there is no continuity through these pins. When I connected both the power cord and the serial connector in the MB then the two pins have continuity. The PC is off when doing this.

    ****It's working. It just doesn't like to be plugged in while the PC is running.
