Hi all. I am working on a project in college to kind of replicate a magnetic card reader program and my professor gave me a magnetic card reader to play with. The model number is HCC206U (made around 2013 or 14) and I can't find the drivers anywhere online and also the software to run it. Would like to look for help here.

 

Thanks a lot!

Does that thing even need a driver.

Usually they just plug and play.

And how many card readers like this one you have connected? :)

 

@reon-iwnl: Type "MSRE driver" or "MSR card reader" and try any driver. This is one method (not so good). Second method - download from "somewhere" ;) big archive of drivers, unpack and let Windows browse them while driver update.

Some sites that sell it mention no driver needed.

Only this one. I tried searching for them but most of the sites are shut down and some asked me to buy the whole machine.

You don't need drivers. It's basically a keyboard (according to the OS). Hook it into your USB port, load up Notepad and swipe a card. You'll see the string of characters show up on screen. If this doesn't work then chances are the device is broken...(There is a chance that it is some obscure hardware that works differently to 99.9% of the devices on the market but that is unlikely)

 

I built part of the POS system for a now defunct UK PC retailer, including mag stripe readers and they all worked this way.

I'll do that. Thanks for the help thus far.
