But I can't check up on your USB to Printer adapter since there is no web link to its maker.
I can share that mine had a driver CD to install a driver for said cable and after that I had a (virtual) LPT1: to print to.
Since you do have the "N" version of the printer maybe you can put it on the network?
I recently got new system-Intel Core 2 Duo. I have an HP 4100N printer that I have never used as a network printer. The HP has no USB connection, so I bought a USB to Parallel printer cable. Connected to ANY usb port on the motherboard I cannot get XP to find the printer. Any help would be most appreciated.
