Im looking for a lead or connector (if their is such thing!) that will allow me to use a USB printer and connect it to a parallel port on PC.
click here click here
Was that the correct link?
I think the link you want is click herebut I also think that you can only connect parallel port devices to USB not USB to parallel.
not according to maplins
If you have not got USB it would probably be cheaper to buy a USB 2.0 card (PCI)
As the parallel port and USB port are mutually incompatible, you would need an adapter to achieve your aims, which would be more costly than obtaining a USB card for your computer.
Ok well if you can connect a parallel printer to a usb port,then surely you can do the reverse?I cant see that item in maplin....only the parallel to usb!
Second look at maplin shows that they sell a USB to parallel but their info on it says for connecting a parallel printer to a usb port? So does that mean i want a parallel to usb?
Thanks but the item is same as maplin which is for connecting a parallel printer to a usb...I need the reverse!
