You have to use both cables usb/serial and the null cable.

Maybe your new computer has a sd card slot and you can use that feature on the 3500.

or something like this

SD Card Reader Via USB- SD to USB Card Reader

Using sd card would eliminate disconnecting receiver and taking it to comp.

USB to serial convertors are notorious for problems and for slowness.
Buy only the type with its own installation CD.
Do not allow windows XP to install it.
Manually install using CD

Select COM1, or COM2, or COM3 or COM 4 port.
Use device manager in your computer to check and select the right port.
