I had a desktop with windows 7 32 bit that I used for years. My printer is a HP 895 CSE. It has a usb wire which I use to print any thing from Windows 7. It also has a series parallel port which I have to use to print some old DOS programs. Recently I got a newer desktop. It does not have a series parallel port. Someone said I would have to get a usb-parallel adapter. which I did. It says "printer not ready" when trying to print. Is there a setting in my printer that I need to change or in my computer. Next question, If I can't get it to work, could I get a series parallel port from a old computer and open my new one up and plug it in, cut a hold and attach it.?
