Device Manager.. Other Devices

I run XP Professional. I notice in Dev Man there is an entry with yellow question marks. ie Other Devices/Parallel Devices. What would this be please? I can account for all my equipment, my scanner and external rewriter are usb, while printer , moniter etc can all be accounted for.Double clicking just indicates there is empty and asks whether I wish to reinstall drivers. Everything seems to be working OK so I suppose one could say do nothing. I would like to know to what it could relate however. Can anyone help please?

you've got something something connected, but not installed with the correct drivers.

parallel devices? do you have something attached to your parallel port?
Usually the culprit is usb. My system for example has 2 usb 1 ports and 4 usb 2 ports which all configured properly. There is however an internal usb connector that wasnt configured automatically.
