thanks for your information, and your offer.

As I said, I have a working setup (with a non-laptop PC with a standard serial port), so I don't need it. It's only a nuisance as I do all my 8-bit development on a laptop now, but I can transfer files to the PC before transferring them to the PET, no problem.

It's a pity that the USB-to-serial adapters are such a mess. After reading Marko's old post about the pl2303 I had only hoped I had a "good" one and the problem was something else.
