I have purchased a Logilink cable (USB to Parallel) ref UA0054 but cannot find driver. Logilink site doesn't help. I need this to run a braille embosser from my laptop.

Anyone out there got any ideas pleae?

"The USB- Parallel cable also provides true plug-n-play
and hot-plug capability - simply plug in the cable under the Windows
operating system and the cable will be instantly detected."

If the USB is the laptop it should work as is. If you are trying to use a laptops parallel port (Do the have them?) you may have to point to the point as a printer.
I think either way you will have to install your embosser as a printer.
What is the make & model of the embosser?

From the sightandsound website
"Included in each delivery is not only the embosser but also the necessary printer drivers."

Have you installed the driver on the laptop?
The only info I can find is from click here and it does not mention USB support, but it doe mention serial and network.
