Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Problem printing from Dell Inspiron 1720 with Vista Home Premium to Epson Stylus Colour 1160 using Nikkai USB to Parallel Convertor. Cable supposed to be plug and play. Any pointers?

\015 I have purchased a Nikkai USB to Parallel Convertor from Maplin so that I can connect my Windows Vista laptop to my Epson Stylus colour 1160 printer.\015\012\015\012Vista Home edition has the correct driver for the printer, but the cable is not 'plug and play' as described. The mini CD supplied does not include any Vista drivers. The box says it is Vista compatible and no drivers required for Vista.\015\012\015\012Other than buying the cable in the first place, where did I go wrong?\015

Answers :

You pretty much said it when you mentioned "Other than buying the cable in the first place" I have never successfully used a USB to parallel converter cable on any system. My suggestion, asisde from getting a true USB printer, is a parallel port card
