COM ports are rare these days, firewire less so but you can use a serial to USB (star, prolific) to put aa COMN port on a laptop. Firewire is quicker though, be aware of that.

A firewire PCI card will be about the same as a usb-Serial converter (20 euros/25 dollars).


Checked versions of the OS are useful when you really have to debug into the OS, but otherwise not, and I have never used them (I once downloaded just a checked ndis.sys though.) You can turn on debugging in various components of the kernel.

Be ware of one thing, on 7 you need to enable debug printing, so google adding 'Debug Print Filter' to the registry.

And when debugging your driver enable Verifier on it, selecting all but the ;low resource simulation' setting. You will get a lot of bugs probably, but these are all real bugs that need fixing, its just that verifier finds them before your customers do. SOS use it. Religiously,


And when you have done all that, you want to sign the driver. And that, is another whole can of worms, believe me.
