Need Nerd, err, PC God to help
    #694053 - 06/22/02 10:32 AM (21 years, 9 months ago)

hi, I have an old Pc, (win98) and someone gave me a new printer.
Only problem is, the printer has a USB port plug, and I dont have a USB port- I have a Parallel port.
So, i wonder, is there an adaptor I could buy to connect the two?
i went to ebay and radioshack, but no luck.
Anyone have any suggestions, besides getting a mew motherboard.
Thanks.

I'm not sure if they have adapters for what you need, but they seem to have them for everything else. You could always buy a USB expansion card. Just slide it into an open expansion slot and it should install itself... they aren't too expensive either.

Go to Best Buy or Comp USA or wherever, they sell USB ports for about $25. Just make sure the one you get is 98 compatable. You just plug it in, install the software, and you're set.
