Super Serial Card Cables

I'm trying to connect my iie to my PC and have decided that a Super Serial card is the way to go, I've tried the audio route without success Sad

Problem is Apple components in the UK are really hard to find, I've looked on ebay and found a few Super Serial cards in the US, but most don't tend to come with the small connector cable (the short one that plugs into the serial card itself, I've got the one to go from the apple to the PC), are these hard to come by ? I can't seem to find any listed anywhere.

I don't want to buy a card and find I then can't get the short cable to go with it !

You can't find one of those pigtails for love nor money. I have some that fit the connector on the SSC card, but Apple wired them differently than PC makers did (go figure). There is a seller in the US that sells new clone cards:

Usual disclaimers apply. I'm not affiliated, but others I have sent there have had good experiences.

I did try to order a card from that very same website, but they told me they were out of stock and didn't know when they would get any more in, perhaps they didn't want to ship to the UK !! Sad

Super Serial Card Cables

Panther,

Go to Jameco Electronics (www.jameco.com). Look through their cable section. the 25 pin to 9 pin serial cable you need is there.
I do not believe that they have a problem with international shipping.

Best Regards

My order went through, and I

Alas, my payment was refunded. I guess they really don't have any. Just watch eBay for SSCs with the pigtail... look closely at the ad or ask the seller if it is included if it doesn't show up in the picture.
