Com ports are not USB ports

So you attached you TI-84 to a USB or a COM port,

look for guides to using that calculators serial cable on the net. there is most likely software you will need aside from drivers.

I would think the calculator would need a com port and not serial. My TI-86 connects through com port. Another good reason here to use google.
