Lite-on, Dvdkey32, Usbtoserial, And Vista 64 = High Suck Factor
Posted 29 October 2008 - 10:33 PM
What I'm looking for is some instructions from someone who has done this using Vista. I can't even get dvdkey32 to fire up in vista at all. (And before you say it, I know that dvdkey32 is a 32bit program, I have several 32 bit programs running on vista64)

Xtractor 2.5 has a bug that can error out if you have a certain key.

found a serial pin header on my system board. I added the serial cable and male connector. Made sure that the bios had serial port enabled. THere was no settings on my INtel board for address or IRQ.
Tried it using that in DOS with both DVDkey 1.1 and 1.2. I keep getting sega: 54 received nothing from com port. It finds the drive okay though.
One thing I notices that was on my max3232 adapter there is a little blue LED that says "PWR" and it never lights up. I touched 3.3 dc volts to it and it lit up blue. Should this LED be on when I have everything soldered correctly? I double and triple checked all my solder points and their good. I tried retrieving the key while holding power to the max3232 and it made no difference.
Also Is there a limit to the cable length? I used a cut phone cord since it had 4 wires allready and was wrapped. I wanted to make a permanent adapter for future mods. The cord length from the lite-on drive to the max3232 is probably a couple of feet.
One last point, when I went into windows my serial port was labeled as COM4. I changed it to COM1 but that shouldn't matter because I'm trying to do this from DOS right?
