I just got a laptop that has no parallel port. I know that I can swap out to a usb dongle but short of that, has anyone ever tried a usb to parallel db 25 cable and then connected the parllel dongle.

I am assuming that this would work properly and the laptop would actually recognize this as a parallel port?

I really do not like the usb dongles because they are so small and potentially easy to lose..

Thanks,

Frank

The parallel to USB question has been asked several times in recent years, but I've yet to hear of anyone actually getting it to work. Time to bite the bullet, methinks...
