"Great experience and exactly what I was looking for. I would definitely shop with Sewell again."


Many of the newer laptops today do not come with a standard parallel port. The Parallel PCMCIA Card allows you to add two true parallel ports to your laptop through the PCMCIA (also known as CardBus) slot.

About one in every three parallel devices don't work with this card. If you have a device that you suspect will not be compatible or have had bad luck with another parallel PCMCIA card, we suggest you try the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA Card.

This card inserts into the PCMCIA slot, and the included splitter cable plugs into the port, providing two parallel ports.

The Parallel PCMCIA Card will support hardware or software that requires either an EPP or a standard parallel port. In other words, the card will support any parallel devices which comply to the IEEE-1284 standard.

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 2530 laptop (Vista O/S) with no parallel port. I need to connect an OKI Microline 3321 parallel printer and work with some windows based applications. Which one of your products will be OK?


It looks like your Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pi 2530 actually has an express card slot rather than the PCMCIA slot. You would need an expresscard adapter like the SW-8662

I have a legacy DOS application that I want to run within a HP laptop (Vista O/S) running MSDOS 6.22 within VMware. Will this device be recognized by Vista as being a "native" (i.e. built-in) Parallel port?


This card is seen as a true parallel port through windows. It generally works with most DOS based applications. Occasionally there are some applications that require the card to run on a certain set of I/O settings and may not work with this card. We have another PCMCIA parallel card that seems to have better support for different DOS applications. It is our Quatech Parallel PCMCIA Card. That one is more likely to work with all of your DOS applications.

I have a software application that requires a hardware key, which I have. The hardware key is a db25, the male end of the key goes to the computer’s female db25. I have no db25 on my Toshiba laptop computer. Can you tell me if I need a parallel or serial pcmcia adapter?


For DB25 you will need the parallel PCMCIA card. We do recommend you consider the Quatech Parallel PCMCIA Card, as the generic one has some compatibility issues and the Quatech usually yields better results.
