uniden e-scanner software

I downloaded the e-scanner software version 2.0. I have opened the program
up and selected the connection tab. I select the bc250d radio and then click
auto configure. The software then checks the four com ports at 9600 baud and
19200 baud. At the end of this check, the software states that the radio
cannot be detected. The small end of the remote cable is connected to the
scanner and the larger end is connected to the back of the computer. There
are no adapters in use for the cable. The scanner is turned on. If the
scanner is turned on and connected, why doesn't the software configure
itself for uploading? I can try the manual settings, but since auto
configure didn't work, I don't know what to select for a manual connection.
Has anyone else experienced this problem? How can it be corrected?

Evening,
        You may have something using the serial port, like a Palm or a backup
unit even though you unplugged them. You have to turn them off.

Sounds like an IRQ conflict somewhere.  If you have an older system, you
probably have a hardware controlled modem (not Winmodem)  and that could be
causing it.  As well your mouse if it is not USB could be taking the
interupt as well.

Most likely the scanner SW's default configuration is to use com1 irq4.  If
it can be changed try these settings below and see if it connects.

COM1 3F8h  irq4
COM2 2F8h  irq3
COM3 3E8h  irq4
COM4 2E8h  irq3

With most systems I have worked on; com1 is set to the DB9 connector and
com2 to the DB25
Even if both of those ports seem to be free.  It may be a PS2 type mouse or
the modem causing the problem.

I would first adapt the DB9 cable from the scanner to fit the DB25 on the
computer and see if it picks up the scanner on com2.  If not you may want to
try and find out what com port your modem is using if internal and go from
there.  unfortunatally there is not easy answer just have to play with it.
but it should work out...

You need to set the scanner to hook up remotely from the menu. Read
the manual for instructions on how to do it.
