    Trouble with cheap serial->usb reader from China.

    I purchased one for ~$20 shipped, and naturally it only logs the obdii time and a bunch of empty position values. Any ideas about what I can try to get it working?

    log
    Code:
    Opening serial port /dev/ttyUSB0, this can take a while
    Successfully connected to serial port. Will log obd data
    close(6) in netlib_connectsock()
    Couldn't open gps port on startup.
    Couldn't get obd bytes for cmd 00
    here
    Creating a new trip
    close(10) in netlib_connectsock()
    close(10) in netlib_connectsock()
    close(10) in netlib_connectsock()
    close(10) in netlib_connectsock()
    serial log
    Code:
    ATZ
    
    0100
    ATE0
    ATL0
    ATS0
    0100
    Code:
    obdgpslogger -p -s /dev/ttyUSB0     Opening
    serial port /dev/ttyUSB0, this can take a while
    Successfully connected to serial port. Will log
    obd data
    Your OBD Device claims to support PIDs:
    PID: [column] human_name
    Couldn't get obd bytes for cmd 00
    00: [unknown] PIDs supported 00-20

    I finally installed XP on my netbook and the device is functional. Since I have the driver files for windows, is there any way I could use the information from those to allow it to function in linux?
