Never seen such before. What terminal setting do you have in ZOC? Do you have a DBSC system? What does 'copy anytextfile.txt com1:' produce on the other end?

I've different more than one USB->RS232 converters running here without such strange problems though.

9600 8-N-1 with all the default ZoC settings. I read an article that I might be able to program the PL2303 chipset on a Windoze machine with a utility. I'll look into that.

I have a terminal program called "Talkthru for OS/2" which has a decent com ability. I also use ZOC which has some different features. Talkthru is what I use for serial coms and it should correct your problem. You need to fiddle with the speed line settings.
