Following is my sample code snippet to read bar code from blue tooth scanner in my android application.

However I am getting an abrupt behavior as follows
1. When I read a bar code, the read method on input stream is executed thrice means I am getting the same bar code thrice.
2. Any subsequent read of a new bar code does not return the new value, rather it's returning the bar code which was read first and that also three times.

As a note my environment is as follows
1. Android os version 1.5
2. backport-android-bluetooth2 is the blue tooth library
3. Baracoda pencil2 is the blue tooth scanner.

Any help in this regard will be highly appreciated.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
