I have a Lexmark Optra E Plus printer which connects with a parallel port. I recently purchased a USB to parallel port adapter. The adapter is being recognised by my Win XP system. However, I am not sure which port on my PC this USB Print works against. I had thought that I might be able to configure the USB Print as a virtual, or physical port to which I attach my printer.
Maybe I've misunderstood how this should work - any assistance is welcome.
Tigsounds - strangely enough I had tried similar to that yesterday with the USB0002 port as I already have another printer connect to USB0001.
Anyhow, I changed to USB0001 and did note that when I unplugged/plugged-in the USB/Parallel adapter the port status did update.
I then changed my Lexmark back to USB0002, forced a reset of the printer and it works now.
Thanx for the suggestion.
(BTW, it took me a few moments to realise that I didn't have a small insect crawling about my screen and that it was part of your post footer...at least I hope it was, otherwise I have some creature wandering round my house at the moment!)
