Hello Experts,

I have connected the Metrologic MS9500 (Keyboard wedge) bar code scanner into my PC.
I have connected the scanner to the USB port, since there is no PS/2 port.
When I connect it gives me the beep sound and the scanner is functioning.

But it is not displaying anything on the screeen on the notepad. But it is gving a beep sound and locked.

What I have to do?
There is no cd from the manufacturer side.

i think you should use a special ps2 to usb connector that comes with a driver...not the normal connector..

The scanner may need to be configured or initialized. Try the "Configuration Software" link on the left pane of their product page:
