'picstart on USB serial ?'

Has anyone tried to get picstart to run off a USB-to-serial converter
? I'd be interested in positive or negative answers.

I haven't tried a PICStart, but I have tried a Belkin USB-To-Serial
converter to feed my modem with only limited success. It all depends on
your particular chipset, my main machine uses a VIA chipset, and these
have problems :-(. There are supposed to be software upgrades available
from VIA to cure the problems, but I've tried versions 1.06 and 1.07,
and still can't get it to work. However, on my other machine, with an
Intel chipset, it works fine - I've used it with a 56K modem and a
digital still camera (Canon QV-100).

My VIA based machine works fine with both a USB mouse, and a Logitech
Express Webcam, so I imagine the problems are in outputting data rather
than inputting it?. If you do a search on DejaNews there are a number of
articles about problems with VIA chipsets and CD-Writers and printers.

BTW, there are also problems with USB and Windows 98 SE, I've applied
these upgrades as well - still no joy :-(.
