Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Step by step would be best as I have no idea what I'm doing. I just want to access and transfer some of my amiga files to my PC. Thanks.
okay the only obvious thing I can see right now, if what you typed, is EXACTLY copied in to this message.

TYPE SER : to RAM:Setup

should be

TYPE SER: to RAM:Setup

That is why TYPE is complaining about it cannot find the device SER, it should be SER: (Note the space inbetween SER and : ) ?

There is no such device as SER, except SER: does exist.

type in the command 'MOUNT' (Without the ') and it should list all mounted devices and see if 'SER:' exists.
