Guest I am looking for a little retail bar code scanner. I am looking at the Metrologic MK5145-31A38 USB bar code scanner. I would like to use my old Mac with OS 9.0. Will it work? Do I need anything else to run the scanner or does it come with a basic software? Does it read any laser printed labels?

Current bar code scanners with a USB interface will all work like a keyboard and do not require any software or driver. The Metrologic Eclipse does not openly support Mac OS 9.0 but being a USB scanner it will work just fine. With the correct cable this scanner will input data into your fore front application just as if you were typing on a keyboard and read any linear 1D bar codes.
