    I have a camera plugged into my pc via the serial data port. Camera software can't seem to comm,unicate. Is there a way to check out the serial port to see if it is working properly?

    What software are you trying to use? Try gtkam.

    installed digikam and got it to work although it did not autodetect the camera?

    Do you have to re-enter the camera's info each time you run it or does it automatically save it to a .conf file?

    Glad it worked for you nevertheless.
