If you find that your new computer doesn't have a standard parallel port, this USB to Mini-Centronics IEEE 1284-C cable set is perfect to connect these older printers to a USB only computer.

Installation is very easy and straightforward. Simply plug the USB connector to your computer and the Mini-Centronics end to your printer then you are ready to print. If you're using Windows XP or Vista, the USB drivers install automatically. Then, you'll need to install the individual printer drivers, most of which are built into Windows XP.

Please note: These adapters will work with Multi-Function or All-In-One printers, but only for printing (in other words, they won't allow you to use the faxing or scanning functions). Also, they do not work with anything other than printers. They will not work with other parallel devices.
