I recently assembled my Robot, Lynx 5 Arm Kit L5A- KT which came with a SSC-32 Ver 2.01. I cant connect via Rios SSC-32 ver 1.05 and 1.06. The RS232 settings are correct as you can see below as well as in the video (LED Blinks):
Light on controller board blinks at about a 1 second rate
Pressing the (Connect) button stops the light while the dialog box is up. Once I select the (Yes) Option light returns to 1 second blinking interval.
The com port selected is the same and the baud parity are the same, tried different COMs also as well as toggled FIFO Settings.
I am using a USB2RS232 connection with Win 7 64 - bit also using the provided RS232-RS232 Extension cable, I am using a wall Power Adapter to Power the unit, same result with the VS2=VS1 jumpers installed.
In the COM port properties box, click on "Advanced". Make sure that "receive buffer" and "transmit buffer" are the same. If I remember correctly, the values should both be 14. If that doesn't solve your problem, I would try either using a powered USB hub to connect your adapter to, or try using an FTDI adapter such as this one.
Let me know if this helps.

I've used the prolific usb serial drivers at 9600 baud (using lynxterm) with an ssc-32 successfully. The com3 seting may need to be checked as often that port is used by computer internal modems.

Thank you so much folks, i appreciate the input. Problem fixed - I was using the drivers windows 7 "recommended" and which took me to prolific's site to download but they weren't the latest ones [i for some reason assumed they were and didn't double-check].... I somehow overlooked that.... Thank you again
