A new generation of magnetic stripe reader/writers is here. This product out performs most card reader/writers and is simpler to install. USB drivers are not used on this product and will not be needed on any modern computer which is using Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7.

Many of our customers ask about MSR206 compatibility. The MSR406-2G sets a much higher standard and has raised the bar for magnetic card reader/writers. 

We have found that 90% of technical issues where a result of consumers not installing the drivers properly or their computer losing them after installation. This product is not just a revised MSR406, but it has been taken back to the drawing board and reengineered to meet the needs of our customers. Even with these changes, technical support is always provided on all magnetic products sold by us. We believe you will find the MSR406-2G to be a much better experience than you have ever had with a magnetic stripe reader/writer.
