How can I verify the reader works?

For a keyboard wedge interface or USB/keyboard emulation interface reader:

Get into any simple text editor - Notepad is recommended in Windows environment (locate it through Start/All programs/Accessories/Notepad). For a dual track reader, swipe a credit card, the reader should beep twice & there will be two lines of data show up in a Maximized Notepad window. (1 st line starts with % and 2 nd line starts with ';' both lines should end with the '?' for readers with the default output configuration). For a triple track reader, swipe a driver license card, which has a magnetic strip with all 3 tracks encoded. The reader should sound 3 beeps, and 3 lines of data will be displayed in Notepad window

For a RS232 serial, USB/RS232 emulation, USB/CDC interface reader:

Setup a HyperTerminal test session (Refer to General FAQ for detailed instruction). For a dual track reader, swipe a credit card through, the reader should beep twice & there will be two lines of the data show up in a Maximized HyperTerminal window. (1 st line starts with % and 2 nd line starts with ';' both lines should end with the ';' for readers with the default output configuration). For a triple track reader, swipe a driver license card, which has a magnetic strip with all 3 track data encoded on it. The reader should sound 3 beeps, and 3 lines of data is displayed on the Hyper Terminal Screen

Note:

1) If the reader doesn't beep when passing a magnetic card through it, please check and make sure the magnetic stripe is facing the correct side of the slot so that the stripe is contacting the reading head.

2) If the reader beeps correctly, but no data is shown in Notepad, please check to see if the correct software is being used for testing. If the answer is 'Yes' check the cable connection and testing software's configuration settings.

3) If the card is read and some of the card data displayed, please reset the reader & re-test.

My card reader beeps when I swipe the card through, but it's not outputting any data to my application software, why is this?

Please verify the reader's output follow the instruction for above FAQ # 3. If the reader is not working right, please contact ID TECH support. If the reader is functioning correctly, please contact the application software side for support. You may need to confirm that the software is able to get the data for the particular interface type of this card reader. (e.g. If you are using a serial interface card reader to work with an application software which requires keyboard input, it's not going to work. You will need to use a keyboard wedge or USB/keyboard emulation card reader in a case like this)

My card reader won't read the second track of a trade show card, why is that?

It? non standard high density (210 BPI) encoding on track 2 for most trade show cards, that is why regular card readers won't be able to read them correctly. It requires the card readers to be customized in order to be able to read the track 2 data. Our IDMB series MiniMag is made to be able to read this type of the trade show cards without modification or customizing the reader.

Are the Port Powered serial interface MiniMag card readers configurable?

No, they are not.
