I need to connect my G4 mac mini to the epson 9500 by using the usb port to the parallel connection on the printer. I found a dynex cable and hooked it up and get communication error alerts, no printing available. I am looking for a c-usb-pk4 cable from epson which is discontinued but would use a different brand so long as it will work. Presently using OX10.4.3 with a downloaded driver from epson version 2.01, i think.

I had huge issues with my TM-U220. It does not play well with a Centronix-to-USB cable or with Windows 64-bit. I played for AGES to try and get it all to work.
I installed the USB device driver I was able to print the Test Page proving that the connection between Windows and the printer sort of worked, but when I tried printing anything from Unicenta POS, it always failed.
I finally bought a new Centronix-to-USB and a new parallel port card, used Windows 32-bit, and problem solved.
Current printers no longer have the parallel port and neither do computers. The printer can be connected through USB, Ethernet or even Wireless. If the printer has a parallel printer port and none of the other means of communications you should look for an adapter USB-LPT.
This camera downloads video over a Firewire (DV, IEEE1394) connection. Some mini-DV cameras have a USB connection but it is usually used only for stills. This camera doesn't have a USB connection at all.
Suitable Firewire (DV) cables can easily be found on Amazon or eBay. You will need the kind with a small (four pin) connector at one end and a larger (six pin) connector at the other. However, while most PCs have a USB port, they seldom have a Firewire port. Macs often have a Firewire port but may not have USB. As most Windows PCs do not come with this interface, you might need to fit an add-on Firewire interface card. This will come with a driver for the card.
The "data" cable for a printer either is:
* USB -- a small almost-square socket, less than 1/2 inch (1 centimeter),
* parallel-port -- a very-wide connector, more than 2 inches (5 centimeters).
Some printers have *BOTH* connectors.
Determine which connector(s) you have, and buy a cable.
Often, a "Thrift Store" will have the "parallel-port" cable for a dollar.
Don't pay more than $4 for a "USB" cable.
If you're buying a USB cable, make sure that there is a "square" end -- some USB cables have a smaller "mini-USB" connector, in order to connect to a digital camera.
I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.
You need extra USB to Parallel device. If you bought LX300 without USB interface you need this device... The USB port will be attached to your laptop and the Parallel port will attached on your printer parallel interface.
