    Yes you use the adapter in conjuction with this cable as I presume your pc/laptop does not have a nine pin serial port and you will need to use the USB port. You could always borrow someone's desktop and save all the hassle.

    Hi AGAIN
    Got 9 pin gender changer but on closer inspection of the rear of p.c. there is no 9-pin connection only 15 pin.
    all the ports for connecting other things .i.e. cameras or ipods are on the front and are the slimeline ports
    i suppose I will have to take your advice and try on some other laptop or is ther an another option.
    cheers

    As per my earlier post above you need to use these two items together when using a laptop.

    USB adapter goes to USB port,(what you are calling slimeline ports), on laptop. Null modem cable then plugs into the end of the adapter and then into the SV.
