I just built a new desktop PC system for my son, and did not notice until it was finished that the motherboard did not contain a parallel printer port. (It has Windows 7 Home installed.) This means we're not able to hook up the legacy HP Laserjet 6P printer he was previously using.
Instead of going out and buying another printer with a USB cable connection, I'm hoping there is a simpler solution.
Question #1 - Does anyone know of a PCI or PCI-e card we can add that has a parallel port on it?
Question # 2 - If not, is there such a thing as a converter we could add to the end of the existing parallel printer cable to be able to hook up a USB cable to run the rest of the way to the back of the PC? (Would this even work?)
