I've "heard" the DataReceived event doesn't always work (so I avoid it).

You first need to confirm that your SerialPort (class) settings match what's in Control Panel AND match what the device expects.

Also insure your "timeout" settings are high enough.

When you believe there is data on the serial port, you can do a .BytesToRead() call on the serial port to see if there is data waiting. You should "sleep" some amount of time before trying.

If you never have any "bytes to read" > 0, then you're still not configured / hooked-up properly.

(You should build a dialog (button) so that you can read / query the port on demand for testing. You cannot restart a program and serial port and expect data to persist).
