Old Dot Matrix Using USB Tags: Printers Matrix USB Panasonic Peripherals Last response: February 25, 2010 6:10 PM in Computer Peripherals Share orpins February 19, 2010 10:21:25 AM Hello, I have an old panasonic kxp3200, i just bought a lpt to usb adaptor hoping to free up the processor on my xp pc when printing. However, the pc recognises the printer is there on start-up but will not print at all. Any suggestions?

Anonymous February 24, 2010 7:40:35 AM I would check the various settings in the BIOS for the LPT port -- bi-directional etc. One of them might work with the adapter. I'm afraid there's a history of problems with so-called USB to legacy port adapters. In many cases they just don't work. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
