AMB will not recognize input from my USB Metrologic MS1690 Focus Barcode Scanner (attempting to use "add using ISBN"). It's properly connected and scans in other applications I use.

AMB 3.4 1207, Windows XP SP3

What do I need to do to get this to work? Thank you.

Hi there!

And does it work with Notepad?
I mean, if you open Notepad and scan the barcode, do you get the numerical value of the barcode in the notepad?
If it does, then it should work okay with AMB as well.

Hello and thank you for your reply.

I can scan (some!?) barcodes into notepad, but I'm finding that ISBNs are consistently not scanning whilst other codes are working properly. Since I wrote to the vendor -- pre-sales -- to ask about ISBN support, I am annoyed.

Thanks for the tip about using Notepad as a test; it will save me the trouble of having to launch the custom app (or AMB) just to test scanners.

Thanks again.
