We have recently purchased a new laptop with no parallel connector on it. The old lap top had a dongle fitted in to it using the parallel connection on the old laptop. To enable this dongle to be used on the new laptop I am trying to find a USB to female DB25 cable. We can buy a USB dongle, but the cost of it is quite high. Does anyone know of such a cable and where I could buy one from? I have looked at Belkin & Ixos, but they only supply a USB to a centronics parallel connection cable.
Beware the USB to DB9 cables. I bought one for my newer laptop without a serial port. Despite trying many different drivers I've never been able to make it work and various forums are full of 'how do I make my USB/DB9 cable work'. They either do straight away or they never will! But it's a cheap option if it works. Even cheaper on ebay!
