My granddaughter has a Epson Stylus 480 printer, which has only a parrallel port input. Her laptop has only USB output. I have a USB to Parrallel cable but the printer does not work. The error message is ( No communication) or something like that. The printer does work on my parrallel cable from my computer. Can anyone suggest a place to get updated suitable USB drivers for this printer please. Xp is her op. system.This is becoming urgent for school work.
Thanks in advance.
