His selection was the same as yours, just hard to see. You can tell it's correct by the ears on the side of the plug that the wire clips on the printer hook to to secure the connection. Are you using a USB hub or can you try a different USB port? I don't quite what you mean what you said "Windows found and recognised the cable but the cable didn't find the printer."
Thanks but I don't think so - the end isn't right. The one I bought was this, and the end fitted - but (if I've understood it right) Windows found and recognised the cable but the cable didn't find the printer. Which I don't quite understand because frankly I thought a cable was a cable and provided I could fit one end in my computer and the other in my printer, it should go, but I gather this isn't so. I think what I want to know is, what's it called if it isn't IEEE1284? (I'm in the UK, if that makes any difference.)
But thanks for the interest!

That would be Tandy in the UK, but I think they sold out
I'd have to suggest Radio Shack. You can buy it and take it home. If it doesn't work, you can take it back and try another one. You can keep that up until you find one that works - or until they run out of adaptors!
