I have the PES Card reader with RS232 Serial port connection. Can this unit be used with a RS232 to USB cable? My new computer does not have a RS232 Serial port connection.

If your computer doesn't have one, then yes, you can buy the converter, but make sure the converter is advanced enough to support drivers and configuration because you might have to configure a few settings before the serial port to be recognized automatically by the software you're using or by the PC.

You can search for these converters on Amazon, eBay or Newegg. Input as search term works like "serial to USB" and carefully check the specifications.
