Does the "keyboard interface" mean that it looks to the computer as though the user typed in the data, though it really came from the card reader? If so, then you should be able to work with it quite easily, using something like a textbox.

Oh, and one other thing - I'm guessing MSR 15123M is actually the model number, not the serial number - correct?
