Parallel Zip drive with USB port
Anyone have experience getting a parallel port Zip drive working on a USB port with a parallel to USB cable???
Can it be done? Will the Zip drivers find the drive on the USB port???
I don't think the zip drivers will find the parallel port zip drive on a parallel-to-usb adapter. Unless your parallel-to-usb adapter has its own set of drivers that let it emulate a parallel port (lpt2: for instance) it won't find it. The zip drivers will be looking for the drive at a lpt port.
The cable does come with software which I hope is the driver.
I have also tried using a parallel port card (lpt2) but the zip drivers couldn't find it.
