Upgrading to a new computer system after 5 years, I didn't realize the new computers didn't have a parallel port for my 17 year old printer. I was thoroughly delighted when I attached this cable to my printer and new computer and the new computer found the driver for my printer within minutes. It was nice to be able to print with my reliable old friend in the new environment. It's nice when technology recognizes peripheral needs and then helps us integrate the new with the experienced.

The cable is as long as my previous parallel to parallel port cable so no moving of equipment was necessary.

I am grateful this product allows me to keep using familiar equipment with my new equipment. THANK YOU!

I could not use the adaptor for its intended purpose. I had hoped to connect an old printer directly to my laptop via the adapter. Nothing I did, including following all instructions, proved helpful.
Not all was lost, however. I am using the old printer as a stand-alone laser copier to good advantage.
I want to add that I have purchases many Belkin products in the past. This is the first time I have been disappointed. Usually their products do exactly what the manufacturer claims.

        Comments about Belkin USB Parallel Cable Adapter:

        While this cable does the job when it is plugged directly into my pc (I have Windows 7), trying to get it recognized by my wireless NetGear router is another matter. I only bought this as a backup because the cable I originally had isn't being recognized at the moment. (I'm recovering from a hard drive crash and I have to reinstall everything.)

        Also, it is only 5, not 6 feet as the Staples page claims. This difference is important to me. The 5 foot only works for me if I have it plugged into my router, but it is not currently recognizing the cable. So to use this shorter cable without the router, I have to pick up my pc, put it on the floor, plug in the cable, print, unplug the cable, and put the pc back on the table. So now I need to think about how to reorganize myself-ugh! I don't have time for this nonsense. This stuff is supposed to be plug 'n play!

        I also did not get it in the shipping time period advertized. It took an extra 2 days. So much for next day delivery to the store!

        I am currently considering whether to keep this cable or return it. The footage issue is a big one for me. I always buy the longer cables to begin with to give me flexibility in my setup.

                Connected my old workhorse HP laserjet 1200 b/w printer to my new PC and worked without any hiccups on the first attempt, can't ask for more.

                      This adapter does not work with Vista. When I had trouble getting it to work, I contacted Belkin and that was what they told me. I Installed it on my IMac and it worked fine but would not work under Parallels. I could not get it to work on my PC also.
