Parallel To USB Printer Cable

by on March 28, 2008

Q: I have a very old CPU Unit and it does not have a USB port but it does have parallel port. The new printers do not have a parallel port though they only have USB ports. Is there a cable that has a parallel port that can connect to a USB printer?

A: Yes they do make a cable that would connect from the parallel port of your computer on one end and then connect to the USB port on your printer on the other end. I am sure that you would be able to find one by visiting your local Best Buy, Circuit City, RadioShack store, or online at You will want to ask for a Parallel to USB printer cable.
