    HI ALL!
    I am new to this forum.
    Actually I want to interface the TTL magnetic card reader with computer
    I have tried it with stripe snoop using game port but it does not work out
    the reader i m using is TYSSO TTL MCR series which reads data from track 2 with loco magnetic cards, now i m a little bit confused how will i interface it with serial port, in the reader there is a decoder IC ET6106
    which decode the magnetic head analog singnal to digital form which output three signals which are CARD PRESENT(/CLS) ,DATA(/RDP) & STROBE or CLOCK PULSE (/RCP).
    Kindly help me out,
