I have an OKI Microline dot matrix printer with both parallel and serial inputs and need to use it on a USB port (Windows XP). I tried a usb - parallel cable but this caused all indicator lights on the printer to go off, possibly a faulty cable. The shop exchanged this for a usb - serial which installed ok but doesn't print, the setting are same on printer and PC. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
thanks to Gongoozler and Wee Eddie for the response, can't install a serial card because it's a new system and taking the cover off will void the warranty. It's using Epson fx emulation and FX800 drivers have been installed from XP, might be worth downloading from Epson though.
