USB ZipCD and DuoDock II


is it possible to connect USB drives like the Zip and the ZipCD to Macs (like a Powerbook Duo / DuoDock II) with only serial ports?

I have heard that it might be possible to connect USB-to-Serial adapters (e.g. Keyspan) the "other way round", so that the usb side is for the drive and the serial side is connected to the Mac.

This of course only applies to Macs which don't have a PCI-Slot.



RE: USB ZipCD and DuoDock II

You should be able to do this.

Try a company called Misco.
