IMPORTANT:
The drivers linked above will only work with cables that use the Prolific PL2303 chipset, like the USB-1 cable. If you purchased a 3rd-party USB-to-Serial adapter cable, then you must use the drivers appropriate to that cable.

After you install the drivers, when you plug in the USB-1 cable, it should appear as a COM port. To connect to the scanner, you should set the software you are using to the same COM port as assigned to the USB-1 cable. Note that each USB port on your PC typically will be assigned a different COM port by the Prolific driver, so if you unplug the USB-1 cable then plug it into a different port, you'll need to update the software's setting in order to reestablish a connection to the scanner.

Prolific provides drivers for the following operating systems:
Windows 98/ME Driver: v2.0.0.19
Windows 2000/XP/Server2003 (32 & 64-bit) WDM WHQL Driver: v2.0.13.130
Supports Vista, Windows 7 and Server2008 (32 & 64-bit) WDF WHQL Driver: v3.3.10.140
Mac OS 10.1 and above for PowerPC based Mac
Mac OS X 10.4.x and 10.5.x for PowerPC and Intel based Mac
Mac OS X 10.6.x for Intel based Mac (32-bit only)
Mac OS 8 & 9 driver v1.3.6 build 1, Prolific Edition

Note that, while driver support is provided for multiple operating systems the application you are running to connect to the scanner must also support running under the desired operating system in order for it to work. At this time, we are not aware of any scanner programming or control software available for Apple computers.
Troubleshooting Tips

Troubleshooting link for USB drivers
http://info.uniden.com/UnidenMan4/USB-1Drivers

A few people have reported issues installing the drivers on Windows 7 64-bit systems. We have verified that the published drivers do work. If you have a problem with the installation, the below steps have resolved the issue in at least one verified case. Note that these same steps might also work to resolve issues with other versions of Windows. We suspect that the problem is caused by an unsupported or outdated driver in the system.
Plug in the cable, and then open up device manager, right-click on the device that has the error and click "Uninstall". Once that finishes, unplug the cable.
Go to Uninstall Programs and uninstall "PL-2303 USB-to-Serial" if it exists. You might want to sort by publisher and see if there are any old Prolific drivers on the system...if so, uninstall them, too. Hopefully this will get you back to a clean state vis-a-vis the cable and its drivers.
Follow the link provided below to go to Prolific's site and download the latest driver (takes about 20 seconds) and unzip it to a directory.
Drivers for other operating systems might be available at: http://www.prolific.com.tw/eng/downloads.asp?ID=31 .
The assumption is that you are administrator on your PC, but to be sure right click on the installer file and "Run as Administrator." The install takes less than 20 seconds.
Plug in the cable. It should be recognized and install as a COM port (this takes about 30 seconds the first time you plug the cable into a port).
