Mine were from belkin and a no-name. Worked find with XP.
However the Vostro is fairly new. I wonder if you or Dell installed XP?
I just purchased a new laptop and since it has no parallel ports, I tried purchasing a usb to parallel printer cable. After hours of installing, uninstalling drivers I've run out of ideas trying to get the printer connected. After a re-boot, if I print a test page, it turns the printer on, but never prints the document.
Anyone have any experience with this printer on a USB port, workcentre xd130df? Anyone have any ideas how I can connect to this printer with the laptop? Print Server have a better shot?
Thanks in advance.
Dell Vostro 1500
