10.4: Use an IOGear Serial to USB converter cable
Authored by: marook on Jan 10, '06 12:11:16PM
Hi All, If you CHANGE the Product & Vendor ID, the driver will then only work with the new product. What you Should Do, is simply ADD a a new DICT for the new product, like this:

	<key>IOKitPersonalities</key>
	<dict>
		<key>067B_2303</key>
		<dict>
			<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
			<string>com.prolific.driver.PL2303</string>
			<key>IOClass</key>
			<string>com_prolific_driver_PL2303</string>
			<key>IOProviderClass</key>
			<string>IOUSBInterface</string>
			<key>bConfigurationValue</key>
			<integer>1</integer>
			<key>bInterfaceNumber</key>
			<integer>0</integer>
			<key>idProduct</key>
			<integer>8963</integer>
			<key>idVendor</key>
			<integer>1659</integer>
		</dict>
		<key>0557_2008</key>
		<dict>
			<key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
			<string>com.prolific.driver.PL2303</string>
			<key>IOClass</key>
			<string>com_prolific_driver_PL2303</string>
			<key>IOProviderClass</key>
			<string>IOUSBInterface</string>
			<key>bConfigurationValue</key>
			<integer>1</integer>
			<key>bInterfaceNumber</key>
			<integer>0</integer>
			<key>idProduct</key>
			<integer>8200</integer>
			<key>idVendor</key>
			<integer>1367</integer>
		</dict>

10.4: Use an IOGear Serial to USB converter cable
Authored by: jocamero on Mar 11, '11 05:10:58PM

Should the last line of your code be:

<key>0557_2008</key>

and not:

<key>0557_2000</key>

to match the original key?
