Product Overview

Main Features
  • Parallel adapter
  • USB
  • IEEE 1284
  • beige
Don't waste the parallel port on your inkjet, laser, or high speed printer. This cable uses the USB port on your PC or hub, so your parallel port remains free for a zip drive or scanner. Forget the hassles of IRQ sharing by adapting your printer to USB. If you have multiple printers, you can eliminate the need for a switchbox by connecting each printer to a USB port.

The device is fully transparent to the user, and is ideal for true bi-directional communication. This adapter auto-negotiates hardware recognition for faster protocol setup, and is fully plug-and-play compatible.
C2G 6ft USB to C36 Parallel Printer Adapter Cable - parallel adapter is rated4.61 out of5 by18.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works well, but...The product works perfectly. I expected it to be the LPT port, and it ended up (obviously) being the USB port that I needed to point the printer to. The biggest problem with this product is that if your using it, you are probably using it with an old printer that windows 7 or newer may not have drivers for. look first. I had to hack a driver to get it to work.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does not work on some printers.When I bought a new computer, it didn't have a parallel port for my HP 6L laser printer. This cable appeared to be the best option to keep running my old laser printer. But I find that this is one model that these cables evidently are ineffective on. Do a web search first to see if this cable will work on your printer. I searched after finding it wouldn't work, and it became obvious that there is something about this model of printer, and evidently a few others, that is incompatible with these types of cables. Nothing against this cable, I just should have done my homework first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works better than expectedI had an old HP LasarJet L6 than only had a C36 interface. This cable quickly connected the printer to USB port and Windows XP immediately recognize the printer and it works prefectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works EXACTLY as describedI saw some comments saying that it was incompatible with their HP LaserJet printers. I wanted folks to know that it absolutely, positively works with LaserJet 4000 & 4050 printers. Bought 2 cables. My only con is that it is 6' so I had to rearrange one of the work areas. If you read and follow the directions to the tee, it will work exactly as described. Pinky swear. The first installation I did, I skipped a step and it didn't work. Note: use Windows Update to grab the printer where applicable if it isn't on the list
