Unhappy SerialPort problem in vb.net

Hello all :

I'm using vb.net SerialPort for controlling an external device, sending/receiving data to/from. The problem is that on DataReceived routine, sometimes there's no data to be read or there are more than a byte to read.

It's very critical for me to process every single byte receiving from serial port.

And if DataReceived routine is invoked, I assume that there must be a byte to read, but there may be .BytesToRead=0 in routine!

Searching in WEB, it's said that .net has problem in serial port !

Any suggestion for coping with this problem?

thanks in advance
