Hello,

I think you mean usb to parallel....and the answer is maybe.

Usb to parallel adapters don't always work with all printers. Buy one from a store that will let you return it if it doesn't work. Make sure you install the drivers for the adapter as per the instructions that come with it.

Hope this helps,

Regards,

Joe

When I connect the printer through USB, it is not recognized and shows error. I need printer driver for HP Laserjet 6L Gold. I am on Windows 7 Ultimate. Thanks


You can download the driver for your printer on Hp's website located at www.hp.com. click on support and then download software/drivers. Enter the name and model of your printer and find the file made for your version of windows. Then just follow the prompts to download and then install the printer. Make sure not to donnect the usb cable again until the install prompts you to do so. Once the driver is installed, the pc will recognize the printer when the usb cable is connected.

Good luck!

I have one hp 6l gold printer.i need printer driver for win xp


The driver for this printer is inbuilt in any Windows OS.

Just connect the printer with an USB and carry on with the installation.

Alternately, you can install the printer From Printers and FAXs > Printers > Add a printer...............select Manufacturer as HP or Hewlett Packard and product as HP 6L Gold..........port as USB001 or USB002 as per availability.

I need driver for hp 6l pro printer


You can find it here, if the desired operating system doesn't have drivers to download then it's because the operating system already includes the drivers... for example Windows XP already comes with 6L pro drivers included. If your having trouble in XP you might want to try downloading the drivers for windows 2000.

LaserJet 6L with Vista using Parallel to USB Cable


It can be done tested by Thoo personally 6L printer prints well on vista too
The printer end should be connected to 25 pin parallel cable, converted to the USB on the notebook end of the wiring
To solve your printing problems locate vista driver, since i have tested vista works fine on HP 6L printers
make sure you select the correct O/S and assign in to the USB virtual port 05
