MDX-500 parallel or serial to USB cable

Post by TerryS » Tue Oct 18, 2016 12:48 am

Our high school robotics team received a second hand MDX-500. We do not have any old computers with parallel or serial ports so we need to get a parallel or serial to USB cable that will work with the MDX-500. Can we just use a generic converter cable or do we need to get one specific to the MDX-500? Is a special driver required too?

Any quality adapter should work. The driver is probably built-in in Windows 7+.
