Vista problems with NEC SuperScript 870

I recently bought a Sabrent 6-Foot USB to DB25 Female Parallel Converter Adapter Printer Cable for my NEC Superscript 870. I connected it to my Dell Inspiron 530s running Vista. I tried to install the driver for the printer but could not find it. I followed the solution on this site and installed the driver for HP LaserJet 2P. But when trying to print the test page it gave me an error and didn't print. Any suggestions? I would appreciate it.

If you load the printer drivers from a Windows XP install disk (in the i386 directory), that worked for me.

How to connect to the computer?


Devices: Canon CanoScan FB330P/FB630P Color Flatbed Scanners

Check pages 22-23 of this copy of your Canon Canoscan 630P Product Guide.

You'll need an "IBM-type" parallel printer cable - with a DB25 on each end, and your computer will also need to have an "IBM-type" DB-25 parallel printer port.

What the Canon Product Guide fails to mention is that this "IBM-type" printer cable is a kluged Centronics parallel printer cable, but became so popular (on older computers - your laptop may not have this port), that it got an IEEE standard: IEEE 1284 (with DB25 connectors on both ends).

You'll need a DB25-to-DB25 M/F cable, meaning DB25 connectors on both ends, with a Male on one end, and a Female on the other end.
The Male DB25 will plug into the Female DB25 connector on your computer/laptop, with the Female DB25 going to the FB630P Color scanner..
Here are some pictures/pricing:
http://www.computercablestore.com/IEEE_1284_Printer_DB25_to_DB25_catID2134.aspx

The nice thing about the design of the Canon FB630P Color Scanner is that the scanner also has a Female DB25 Printer port for an existing parallel printer, so when you connect an FB330P/FB630P to your system, your existing parallel printer is daisy-chained through this port - so you needn't give up you printer (to scan), nor must you install another parallel printer port onto your PCI-bus tower PC to keep your printer.

Most modern printers are USB-attached to laptop systems, so you may need an adapter, an example of which is seen here:

I just bought a new computer and the connections don't match up. what do i do? I have the Eltron LP 2443PSA Thanks, Mike


I beleive your printer only has a Parallel interface and your new pc does not. You will need a USB to Parallel cable.

The NEC SuperScript 1260 has a parallel printer port. So you would need a parallel to usb adapter. These aren't very expensive; depending on the brand and length you'll pay between $8 and $15. See https://www.amazon.com/TRENDnet-Parallel-Converter-10-6-10-9-TU-P1284/dp/B0007T27HS or https://www.amazon.com/Sabrent-Parallel-Printer-Adapter-CB-CN36/dp/B00IDU0T1Y Alternatively, if you have a desktop, you can find a PCI or PCI-e add-on card with a parallel port, depending on the slots available in the system. These will be closer to $20 to $30. Then you need a standard parallel printer cable. Many computer parts sites, including Amazon.com, will have both.

A bigger problem may be the printer drivers. NEC did not update the drivers after Windows XP. (Some XP drivers will work under Vista.) NEC doesn't supply the drivers on their site: https://support.necam.com/Printers/Drivers/ . They refer you to the original driver CD that came with the printer. A few sites may have these drivers online. However, I haven't seen a link to a known trust-worthy site with the XP driver.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment if you need more information.

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.

Vista 64 bit OS says I must get a driver with a digital signature to install USB to DB25 parallel cable. The driver on the disc which came with the cable was not accepted by Vista.


1. Get a new signed driver from the adapter manufacturer.
2. Try the workarounds listed here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/08/15/workaround-for-vista-cannot-load-low-level-driver-signing-issue/

For what it is worth, I generally found USB to parallel adapters worthless as most printers will not work with the adapter. Usually easier to get a new printer. If a desktop, get a parallel port expansion card.
