MSR90 USB magnetic card reader
« on: February 16, 2012, 11:31:41 am »
We have recently purchased a USB Magnetic card reader from ebay, model MSR90.
This come without driver. As I can see windows recognize it as USB device without any serial port virtualization.
USBDeviceDemo can see the device as "USB Input Device".

I want to work with this device and read magnetic cards.
Is it possible with nrCommLib? If so, can you give me some instructions please?

The barcode demo has serial port support only. Cannot find a reader for USB demo :(

Hello

Possible MSR90 reader is visible as HID (Human Interface Device)
Please try to HIDDemo for read reader data.
More info about HID see in this board:
