Hoping some one out there has a spare PCI Parallel (Printer) Card that they can let me have. They are about £10 normally but like so many people now, I am not working, so am hoping so kind hearted soul has one for cheaper or if you know of somewhere that is selling them for cheap. Money's to tight too mention ATM.

Arghhh, I was having a clearout the other day and found a parallel PCI card. Sorry, but I chucked it away lol :(

I assume you need to run a printer on a PC without a parallel printer port?

If that's the case a cheaper option, if you have a spare USB port, would be a USB to parallel printer cable. These can be picked up for a couple of quid.

Hope this helps?

It's for this...

I have had it sitting around as my motherboard doesn't have a parallel port, even though Eclipse computers advertised the board as having one! They wouldn't sort out the problem for free as I would expect, asthey were mis-advertising the mobo, so I am looking for something to plug it into. You can see the cable that needs to go itno a port in the photo.

Many THX for your replies merc_fan, algie42 and Simon_G. SImon don't think the converter will work with the cable I have?
