Connect printer to usb

Please tell me how to connect the printer to a USB Port. My computer does not have a parallel port. I bought a usb to IEEE 1284 parallel printer cable but the parallel end still does not fit into the printer cable.
Thanks

I apologize for the delay in responding to your inquiry. I have researched this matter for you, and then typed a fairly lengthy solution. For some reason, just before it was to be posted it disappeared. (We have to love these PC's, right?)

At any rate, the connector on the printer is known as a mini- or micro-concentric parallel connection; therefore, you will need an IEEE-1284 premium mini-concentric parallel cable. This reference is posted merely for you to see the particular cable, and should not be interpreted as an endorsement of any kind concerning the vendor. http://sewelldirect.com/ParallelCableMiniCentronics6Foot.asp. In order for the IEEE 1284 end of the cable to attach to a USB port, in this instance, would require an adaptor to convert the parallel to a USB connector of the proper type and size. In fact, given that I do not know the remaining specifics of your system, and so that you will gain familiarity with the various adaptors, I would suggest that you take a look at this page: http://sewelldirect.com/search.aspx?searchTerm=usb+parallel+adaptor.

Again, please do not construe my posting of this vendor's pages as an endorsement of any sort, as I have had no experience with them whatsoever. The references are posted here simply for your review.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

    Was there additional information that you needed in order to feel that we have reached a FixYa rating level? If this information is lacking in some way, please let me know and I will attempt to provide you with more. I realize that the pages I referred you to include a large number of photos; however, I wanted to give you a sense of the number of options available, and the choice of how you wanted to connect, as we do not have the information regarding your basic computer system in order to make further recommendations...



    Thank you for using FixYa, and pleas post back if I may be of further assistance to you.

Panasonic IEEE 1284


Not sure what the question is. IEEE 1284 is a parallel cable interface, standard on most computers up until Windows XP for sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1284. This interface was substantially replaced by USB. If you have an older printer with this interface you can still connect this to a newer computer without the parallel interface by installing an interface card (into a desktop computer) or connecting via a Parallel to USB adapter.

There is three things that you will need:
Proper port set up on laptop device manager (Check settings) LPT1 is for a parallel port - Need USB Correct Driver for the Citizen 6000 Pro Laser (Windows should auto install) Hub that will communicate via USB to the IEEE 1284 Printer via cable.
Driver Site: http://www.driverfiles.net/Printers/Citizen/Prolaser-6000-Printer-Driver/download/page,sh,38839,389,12,.html
I hate to suggest, but you may have to call Microsoft Citizen Tech Support for suggestions on the Hub that will communicate via USB properly. Check your manual for setup options.

What kind of cable is needed to connect a Fargo DTC 520 to a computer?


The cable you need for that printer is a Parallel IEEE1284 Compatible Bi-directional printer cable. It is the regular printer cable everyone used before all the printers went USB. If you dont have a parallel port on your computer, the link below is to USB Parallel adapters that you should be able to use with this printer.

USB Parallel Adapters from Tigerdirect.com


I hope this answers your question. Have a great day!

Does hp laserjet 5200 have netword printer


Here is your network guide for the 5200n printer
If you do not have the 5200n printer, it is not network. You will need a 'print server' ($100 approx). Get USB or Parallel, depending on the connection it uses.

How do I connect my X6150 to my PC just to scan pictures into the computer


I believe that the AIO Lexmark printers connected to the PC via the USB port on the PC.

They also may have connected by a parallel port connection using the ECP connection protocol of the IEEE 1284 Standard.

Can i use serial type of connector to be able to use bjc 1000 on my laptop?


I don't think so because printer like BJC 1000 are using Parallel Port connector or Standard Interface: IEEE 1284 parallel.
If i am you i should buy a new printer which have already USB Port Connection (Latest Model).
If you have some question don't hesitate to ask us.
Good luck!
