VINtrack 2D/1D USB Scanner (Item #USB2D)
Reads linear (1D VIN), stacked linear, and 2D bar codes. This will scan the 2D codes commonly found on vehicles and used for parts marking, as well as titles, drivers licenses, and registrations. Symbologies include: 1D 39, 128; 2D PDF417, Matrix, Maxicode and many others (We have had good success scanning GM VINs through glass in the right conditions). Featuring a custom sensor that is optimized for bar code scanning with industry-leading performance and reliability.

American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) upgrade software available to scan driver's licenses and titles.

Just plug it in and let Windows Discover it. Your application program does not need to know anything about reading bar codes. You can configure the reader to send certain keystrokes before and after the bar code to move the cursor to the right place. The actual bar code is sent by simulating a human typist.
