USB to parallel port connection

  Mike 11:37 06 Apr 2004

I have a new scanner that has a USB connection. My computer does not. What is the best and cheapes way to make the scanner fit the computer.

Is there an adaptor or is there a board I can fit to give me USB ports on the computer

Any advice would be welcome

you can buy a pci to usb card at any retailer like pc world. it would cost about £20 and give 4 or 5 usb ports at the back of your computer
