Usb > Parallel Converter Cable...

  alexgray104 17:30 05 Jun 2007


I have got hold of a Netgear 10/100mbps Printer Server which has 2 parallel connections. One will go to the ancient decade old LaserJet 5, which, naturally, has parallel so all is ok. But my newish inkjet (Canon iP2000), only has a USB connection. This means it cannot currently plug into the printer server. I know you can get cables that will convert an old parallel printer to USB, but can you get a cable that will convert USB to the older parallel interface? i don't mind suffering speed wise..I know parallel is a lot slower than USB...

Many thanks in advance for your much appreciated help...

Thanks for link Joe R, but thats what I knew existed already - I want one the other way round - USB at printer end, Parallel at computer end.

Cheers for replies,
