I think you will need a driver for the Parallel to USB adapter you plan on purchasing. Make sure it has one.

Windows 2000 drivers normally work ok in Windows XP.

Or you can use the Alps MD-1000 (MS) native driver that Microsoft included with Windows XP. With it, you don't need to use the Parallel to USB adapter. Just connect it straight to the pc parallel port. If no pp, then you can add one easily.

Hi

I am using a laptop so new parallel port not poss. (or is it)

I am using a BAFO BF1284 cable with software. When I set this up it allowed for XP finding 'new Hardware' worked ok.

It shows in Properties to use LPT2.
Does the software tell USB that it is now LPT2 ?
