FAQ# 2135: Can I configure an ID Tech, POS-X or Magtek MSR (Magnetic Stripe Reader) on a Mac based operating system?

Question

Can I configure an ID Tech, POS-X or Magtek MSR (Magnetic Stripe Reader) on a Mac based operating system?

Answer

Unfortunately, a majority of MSRs will need to be configured using the MSR configuration utility while on a Windows based operating system. Once the device has been setup/configured on the Windows device, then you can migrate the device over to a Mac for further use.
