I have a paralell to usb printer adapter.Every time I start my PC, I have problems of the system to recognize it
It is a Tripp-lite adapter, model U206-006-R , but the drivers supplied in a CD, are for Windows '98 , and are recognized in Windows XP, which provides a driver that I can't figure to make permanently installed, because my system identifies it as "Unknown USB device"
Any assistance That you can provide, will be greatly appreciated.

Have you checked the drivers for the usb adapter. plug it in and go to my devises and up date driver see if that fixed it. vista software may have a problem as they are not updating there software files. but win7 is fine has same filing as xp.
print driver is possibly looking for a specific printer port like lpt 1 or two with the specific address and interrupt. or you have to find a setting to change to or from ecp, epp, bidirectional or standard printer port,
You Must first turn on the Hp printer and wait till it is Completely ready. Do not turn on your computer till the printer has completely warmed-up and is indicating that it is ready. Then turn on your computer and it will detect your hp every time.
Of course This is assuming that you have the right drivers, they are install correctly and that the cables area working fine.
Since I have been following this startup sequence I have had no printer communication failure errors. It turns out that some HP laser printers require to be started and initiated first in order to be detected properly.
When working with older printers there can often be a lot of odd workarounds that you have to do to keep everything happy. You might also be able to disable bidirectional support for the printer, that way the computer won't wait for all of the OKs to come back from the printer--it will just assume that it is there and ready by the time you send a print job.
