Windows 7. My new PC does not have a parallel connection for my HP710c printer and so I bought a parallel to USB converter cable. The PC says the printer drivers are downloaded and in place and the printer is ready to use. Only it refuses to print. The documents join a queue and nothing happens. I have tried the USB end in different USB slots but to no avail. Any one know what might be the cause please?
I had a very similar problem with a HP 640C printer - couldn't get it to work on XP even. These things just won't work for some people, & most likely unsupported by our printers as TB says - also see click here.
Never got around to trying it (as I moved on to a USB printer), but I think a PCI parallel card might work - e.g. click here. More choice/cheaper ones via click here, but the previous one has 5 perfect reviews & says it's compatible with Win7 in the specs. But please don't hold me responsible if that doesn't work either! G
