XP PC to HP 690c Printer fails.

  LaneFarmHouse 19:40 10 Mar 2005

I have a new Compaq laptop with Win XP. It does not have a parallel port so have bought a usb/parallel cable to connect to a HP 690c printer. The test page prints but I cannot get anything else to print. I would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.

Probably an obvious question - but have you loaded the drivers for the printer?

Well the printer works, but lappy`s not connecting to it. Did you put the software in befor you switched the printer on ?
