Additional Product/VendorIDs

    I installed your driver on my Mac on OSX 10.4.9 and it was not running out of the box with the following Sitecom adaptor:

    I use the V2 version of it. I had to manually change the vendor and product IDs to the following values to make it work (Info from Systemprofiler):

      Vendor:    Prolific Technology Inc.
      Product-ID:    0x2068
      Vendor-ID:    0x6189

    Maybe you could include this in future builds so it runs out of the box for other users with that adaptor.

    Thanks very much for this driver!

      Thanks for this excellent code! My antique Palm USB-Serial dongle appears to work with minicom after adding it to Info.plist.

      Ignore my last post. I *thought* it was working but it wasn't really; i was just getting some indications that i was connected. Apparently the KL5KUSB is *sorta* playing with the driver.

      The Palm dongle is based on a Kawasaki KL5KUSB105AC and is no longer supported by Kawasaki. Next time I'll pop open the case before I get all excited and post.

      I may not have a solid grasp on how to set things up with my adapter but it would seem that it just doesn't work with this driver.  The details in the device manager are:


        Version:    2.50
        Bus Power (mA):    500
        Speed:    Up to 12 Mb/sec
        Product ID:    0x5523
        Vendor ID:    0x4348

      It's a cheap ebay sourced adapter with HL-2303 stamped on it, rather generic.  I tried the Prolific driver for OS X and modified the VID and PID fields, but no joy.  Is there anything I can do to get the driver offered here to make it go?

      Hi, I'm the same as the guy above, I bought a cheap ebay sourced generic adaptor (mine has "HL-340" stamped on it). I also tried editing the code within the osx-pl2303.kext driver:


      Should this be enough to get the device working (it isn't..)? Is this device compatible with your driver? (I'm only guessing the chipset is the same from googling..

      Here is the output for the device from USB Prober:
