How to connect to a PC?

Post by Banana » Sun Jan 12, 2020 7:50 pm

I have my original Z88 which I took out about 2-3 years ago, and have actually used it. It has the P.C. Link Software ROM, but I just can't find a cable that goes from the Z88 to my PC (USB). Does such a thing exist? How do you all share your data between the Z88 and PC?
Thanks.

You need a Z88 serial link and then a USB to serial adaptor on the PC end.

You do have to be careful as to which USB to serial adaptor you purchase - some of them will not work. The following one should be OK: https://amzn.to/2trVGSR (I have used these for other projects)

Thanks! What about the cable that goes from the Z88 to the PC? The serial link, where can I get those?
