hi i use a USB Keyboard with my system. I have 5 old Cherry Keyboards with 5 Pin Connections. I purchased a PS/2 to USB adaptor then realised that I should have purchased a 5 Pin to USB adaptor because I had a 5 pin to PS/2 cable which then had to be connected to the USB adaptor making a 3 cable extension before it reaches the computer. Tried all 4 Cherry 5 Pin Keyboards but Windows says a device has malfunctioned. I know the keyboards work. Should I buy a direct 5 Pin to USB adaptor or should I change some settings in the Keyboard setup in Control Panel? Many thanks for your help. p.s I love my Cherry Keyboards as they are faster (to me)
thanks all. maybe i should email Cherry and ask their opinion. I would have thought there would be a DIN5 to USB on eBay or manufactured by someone. Anyway thanks for your responses. I'll keep trying until I hopefully get some success. Thanks. Danny1234
Sorry, I forgot to place the links. There is actually one place that seems to have two adapters that may get the job done. Both are on the same page but I am including a second link directly to the PS/s to USB.
