SOURCE: there is a serial port besides the parallel. how can i make it work with serial cable?

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.

SOURCE: converting printer from parallel to serial connection

There is a Parallel to Serial converter cable that you can use. You may find it on a computer store.

USB TO SERIAL WIRING


You can not directly wire USB to rs232 serial via wires. They are different protocols with different voltages, speed, communications, etc.
You require an active electric converter which contains circuitry to transform the protocol.
USB to serial converters are pretty cheap. They will automatically show up as a com port on windows or as /dev/ttySx on Linux.

Kids gave me a printer/scanner Epson model number c171a. Need the cable to it. AN oldie but looks like a pretty nice printer. Can you help??


The cable you need depends on the unit. I am not aware of a C171a model from Epson. I have seen it listed as a version of the RX500. In that case you need a USB cable with A/B male ends.

Otherwise, most printers (from about 1997 on) will use a USB cable. This has two male ends - a square end goes into the printer and a rectangular end that goes to the computer (called A/B). For older printers (there may be multiple ports or just one), you may see a parallel port (the cable has a wide rectangular plug on both sides with 36 pins) or serial port (the cable may have DB9 (9 pin), DB25 (25 pin) or both). Often it is called a RS-232 port. For a parallel port connection, you would need one that is designed for scanners and bi-directional communication (USB to parallel adapters are available to connect this to a new computer but you still need the bi-directional version). Similarly, USB to serial adapters are available.

Generally you can tell what cable you need by looking at the back of the unit where the ports are. (Although some all-in ones have the USB cables in other places - routed through the side of the unit but the plug is near where the ink cartridges go.) Then the size and pin counts for parallel or serial tell you what cable to get. There is usually a symbol indicating the cable type as well near each port. USB cables are usually indicated by a tree like symbol with curved branches.


I hope this helps.

How to connect my laptop via RS232 to my NEC XN120 telephone exchange using the PC Pro telephone system software in order to programme the exchange?


I connect mine with the RS-232 cable in the side of my laptop. It's a Toshiba rinning Windows XP (nee Vista).

Since you're asking the question, I guess you don't have an RS-232 port. For my Vista machines without serial ports, I own a USB to RS-232 adapter cable. On our side of the pond, they carry names like Iogear GC-232. Here's a U.K. search result http://www.amazon.co.uk/USB-RS232-Converter-Cable/dp/B00077DJIQ

Sometimes, you have to go into the device manager and change the port assignment of these adapters to something in the 1-4 serial port range. That was common with the old software.

I replaced my USB/Serial RS232 port adapter with a genuine RS232 serial port on the PC. THis solved the problem. Further reasearch on the net indicated that USB to RS232 - serial port converters do often have problems. I previously had not had a problem running on Windows XP and this is what alerted me to the possibility of the USB/RS232 port adapter as a possible reason for the "new" problem.

My adapter DB9 FEMALE TO DB25 FEMALE doesnt allow me to see my Printer


Are you tring to run a parallel printer from a serial port? If so then it will not work at all. You would need a serial to prallel adaptor that also has the software drivers needed to convert the signal.
