I want to connect my W7 PC via the above to a Parallel port on a HP Laser Jet (HP 6L)very old printer, which works OK on XP.
Questions -
1. Can I determine whether W7 has the driver before I buy a suitable device?
2. What cable would be suitable?
Thanks David

Drivers are available for both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 from click here

The best solution would be to install a Parallel Port PCI card in the PC click here otherwise otherwise a USB to Centronics cable click here
