USB to Parallel

  Ian-192428 13:10 07 Sep 2004

Hi Guys,

I am Currently using a HP Pavillion Laptop which does not have a parallel port. I need to find an adaptor or card that gives me a parallel port that is ECP compatible.

I will not be using the port for printing, I need it to open dongle controlled software and to collect data from a remote instrument that exclusively uses a parallel cable.

Any help on this matter will be greatly appreciated,

Try code UC02C or A85AN from here

Don't know if it has the spec you need.

If your software is "dos" based, usb to parallel maynot work.

Another option is to try PCMCIA to parallel adaptor.
