    Hi all,

    Hope you can help on this one. I've just bought an RU890 from eBay but it didn't come with a serial cable (the cable supplied was a stereo minijack to stereo minijack). Do you know where I can get a replacement? I understand you can apparently use a Kodak digital camera cable but I can't find any retailers who sell those seperately.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Jon

    The FAQ has a wiring diagram for you to add an RS232 connector onto that. I can mail you a spare RS232 connector if you can supply your own solder and skills :)

    Hi Mike,

    Many thanks for your reply. Unfortunately the last time I used a soldering iron was for my Technology GCSE 16 years ago (and I failed). Do you know where I could buy the cable ready made? I've been trying to track down the Kodak cable but thus far have failed quite spectacularly.

    Thanks again
    Jon

    Thanks JJ. I've placed an ad in that forum.
