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.

Do you know which connecting cables work with the Epson Stylus Photo 2200 printer. I see a sczi firewire 400? and don't know what the 3rd is. I am trying to connect it to a Mac Book Pro with snow leopard...


You should be able to connect to your macbook with a standard USB A-B cable, for most printers it's almost square at one end standard flat at the other.

You can get them from ebay or any pc/printer shop, just ask for a standard USB printer cable. Here's one on ebay:- Item number:180514570583.

For mac drivers for the printer, the best place to look is the Epson website, follow links for support and downloads, entering the details of you operating system and printer model as you go. You should arrive at a page which offers free drivers for your PC.

I'm not sure if I have the correct cord or if I have it pluged into the correct port.


It is either a usb "A" connector which is the squarish side of the usb cable and the flatter "B" connector is the side that goes into your computer's usb jack. Some printers, like yours also still use a parallel port which is a Centronics big, wide rectangular connector that connects to the printer side and the other end is a DB25 parallel connector than goes to the parallel DB25 printer jack on your computer. You must have at least one of those cables but you only use one or the other. The usb will be configured to a usb local printer port or the parallel will use the LPT1 port. HP.com will provide you with a quick install brochure with pictures for you to see. post back if you need more help! Steve Medley

My printer doesn't have the usb to connect it to the computer - what do i need to do?


If the printer does not have the square USB connector (USB B end), then it will have parallel. Parallel is a wide connector that plugs in to a DB25 connector on the back of your computer. These parallel port printer cables can still be picked up at just about any office supply or computer store.

What if your computer does not have the DB25 parallel port but the printer does? Well there are USB to Parallel Port adapters made specifically for this scenario. They can run $10 to $30 depending on where you go. I recomend www.Geeks.com for those. That will allow you to plug an older printer in to a newer machine.

If it's made for a mac only, there should be a small circular port about the same size as a PS/2 keyboard or mouse. That is to connect to the Mac serial bus. This is differant than the barrel connector or brick used to supply power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

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.
