Yes, if the USB is giving you consistent issues then parallel is a more straight forward method of access as it does not create a virtual port. Might slow your scans down though.

Hello,
to solve your problem you need the USB to Parallel adapter. Find examples here:

Regarding drivers, if you dont find for Win 7 try from XP.

Hope that helps!

Hello and welcome draepeacock !
The only solution is a workaround :
If you have the W XP install disc , you can install a virtual version of W XP on your machine from http://www.vmware.com/products/player/
If you still have the install disc , you can also partition your primary and install W XP on the new partition from http://download.cnet.com/Partition-Wizard-Home-Edition/3000-2094_4-10962200.html.Back up your data first.

Both are easy and safe , no specific knowledge required .
Regards .

Windows xp with not recongise HP Laserjet 6p when plugged into a usb port


To my knowledge, the 6P isn't a USB printer, it's parallel port only. Are you using a USB / parallel port adapter? If so, I believe that's the root of your problems - the adapter.

Try hooking it directly to the parallel port (shut the PC and printer down before doing so).

Upon restart, Windows will detect it, and may or may not "know" the model, so you may have to choose it from the dropdown boxes.

If it works when directly connected, you will need to either locate drivers for the adapter (if any), or manually configure it under the printer port properties.

If you need more help, let me know. These are great little printers - once you get them to work!

Help hook up Panasonic KX- P1150 parallel printer to USB with win Xp pro 64


Ah, 64 bit computing I feel your pain. One of my uses insisted on buying one and then found out 80% of their unique programs won?t work on it. We eventually wound up formatting the hard drive and installing conventional Windows on it. I researched several manufacturers of ?parallel to USB adaptors? and none of them claimed 64 bit compatibility. I did, however, find out that there are compatibility issues and some printers won?t work correctly. An alternative if you have a free PCI port on your PC would be to try using this card from cables unlimited: http://www.cablesunlimited.com/products/Prod_Individual3.aspx?groupcode=I3303. A bit too pricy ($89) but they actually advertise 64 bit compatibility with real drivers to match. Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions.
