Default ads / usb can work?

Hello everyone.
Sorry for the translation (Google)
I am new at this and I'm lost.
I have a 318is e36 the e46 325ti 1995 and another 2001.
The laptop only has USB.
I ask, if I buy a usb to obd2 adapter. Am I worth for the 325

If I also connect an INPA interface to OBD / ADS, Am I worth for the 318?

Thanks for the forum.

If your car needs true ADS for diagnosis the you cannot use a serial to USB adapter, the laptop HAs to have a proper serial port and you need the correct ADS interface.

USB does not carry all of the handshaking protocols necessary for ADS based diagnosis.
