I have a printer with only a parallel port but the port om my computer is damaged (careless transportation!). Can I get an adaptor to connect the printer's parallel port to a usb connection on my computer or this an impossability?

Thanks all.

Cable Universe looks good and costs a lot less than a replacement for my perfectly good printer!

I have ordered a cable.
