You have not mention what Operating system is on your PC.
For Windows OS XP, you just have to install at least XP Service Pack 2 or higher... and the USB 2.0 ports will function. For Vista & Win 7 OS, the USB 2.0 drivers is in the Operating System when you install Windows.
It would be better to use the USB to do this since Parallel ports are almost obsolete in today's computers. If you have an open expansion port you could put a parallel port card in the computer no problem but why would you want to? I would have to have a much better understanding of what you where trying to do to give you any other advice about Parallel vs USB vs FireWire. I have seen app's that use the serial port and parallel port as you are mentioning but these are tools for doing dead PC diagnostics and even most of those use the serial port because of the improves Bidirectional abilities for data flow.
You can try fixing the problem by first dismantling all the connecting cables specially the cable that connects your hard drives and other removable disks to the mother board. Clean the terminal pins to both connectors, make sure that its free from dusts and dirt. Reassemble everything and see to it that they are properly connected before running your PC.
