Dreamcast Cable to PC

the cable is made by a company called Innovations and looks like a serial port at one end but the other end almost resembles a usb port.. You need one other thing to connect it to the serial port in the DC though and i am still searching for it... the cable only runs about 9.99

i was looking at my local computer/office store and they had a serial to a usb. would that work?

i also saw a usb to a usb.
one was a "A" connector to a "A" connector
the other was a "A" to a "B"
i have usb ports on my computer. so if one of them would work then which one do i get.

thanks to all for your help!

He said it RESEMBLES to USB connector, but DC does NOT work with USB technology.

YOu need a special cable and that's all. Check dccopyworld.com for more info on how to build one for your own or check www.lan-kwei.com or www.lik-sang.com to buy one.

Another faster method is to buy a broadband adapter.

Cable takes 24hours to copy a game. BBA takes 1 hour.
