Solved HP Laserjet - USB to Parallel - Windows 7 Issue Tags: Drivers Windows 7 Hewlett Packard USB Laserjet Product Last response: May 12, 2014 2:57 PM in Windows 7 Share TimCL January 15, 2011 1:07:09 AM Hi I got this MB http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and bought this USB to Parallel cable http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... to install my HP Laserjet 2100 on Windows 7 32bit. I downloaded and tried all drivers from HP site http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/Softwa... However I can only print small pdf files and notepad files only (I tried couple of words). Is it time for me to buy a new printer or am I doing something wrong. The new cable is detected as IEEE-1284 controller, but printed is not detected and then I install the drivers and use USB001 Virtulization Port. Should I try a different cable from Frys such as http://www.frys.com/search?search_type=regular&sqxts=1&... or PCI to Parallel or Time for new printer PS: When I try to configure USB001 Virtual Printer Port I get and error "An error occurred during port configuration. This operation is not supported" More about : laserjet usb parallel windows issue Reply to TimCL Best solution Emerald a b \ Driver a b $ Windows 7 a b α HP January 15, 2011 2:37:41 AM get a PCI to Parallel controller card since the drivers do not know how to deal with a USB to Parallel cable. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
