Reader R.O. asks: I lent my Compaq Aero to a friend that promptly lost the Autosync cable. I haven’t been able to locate a replacement but I was wondering if a db9f/db9f null modem cable would suffice.
Wow, a Compaq Aero? Handheld PC or Palm-size PC. Haven’t had a question about one of those in years. Yes, the serial cables were null modem type cables with 2-3 (and other pairs crossed). Click on this link for more possibly useful info: HP Jornada cable discussion in PocketPCFAQ.com forum.
