Question about OKI OL 400e Led Printer
I am trying to connect the serial port of the printer to a usb so i can use this nise printer with my new motherboard (no serials or parallels). I use a serial to usb cable, but its not working. (software can;t see the printer). Any suggestions? Do i have to configure the printer to receive data from serial? hao can i do this?
I know this is dreadfully old, but when using a Parallel-to-USB adapter with a non-USB printer, once the drivers have been installed for both the printer AND the USB adapter, you often have to point the printer driver to the correct port. Do this by going into the properties for the printer in the Printers folder (right-click, select properties). Select the Ports tab, then scroll down the list until you see the entry for the USB adapter - something like 'USB001 - Virtual USB Printer Port' or similar. Select this, hit 'OK' and give the test print a whirl.

If the printer is built with a usb port, the it should work, is there another USB device in the PC that is working ?
