EPSON TM-T88II Serial to USB connection

I have an EPSON TM-T88II that I want to connect to a laptop without a serial port. I bought a serial to USB converter and have connected the printer to the laptop and installed the EPSON drivers perfectly, however when I go into the control panel/printer to try to print a test page the printer status is 'unavailable' and the test page appears in the queue then disappears without printing?

The printer is install but will not print not sure if it is on the correct port, what port should i choose i am using windows xp pro


Please read the users manual for printer compatibility. What operating system is compatible for this printer. If not, parallel port is the quickest way to connect to printer, just install the printer software and it is ready to print. But if you are using USB port. sometimes you need usb driver to be able to connect to printer. Check for usb port driver for this printer before installing.

Epson TM 88II not working with Win XP SP2


Are you confident this is using a parallel interface?

The ones I used to work with used a 25pin to 9pin serial connection. The 25 pin connection on the printer is the same as a parrallel port on a PC, but if you think of a normal parallel lead the printer should use a 'centronics' connector to conform to this. I think you may need a 25pin to 9pin serial lead which aren't very common but plenty of people should still make them.
