Hi

I would like to be able to connect my "old" laserjet 1100a via a parallel cable to USB to my laptop. But what kind of cable do I need?

Thanks!

I don't understand.Any store that sells computer equipment should be able to get these cables if they don't have them in stock.

Go to the link below and you need the second item with the mini adapter.

Hejsa Sofia,

You need

I can see the first one searching on yahoo.dk but not the second one.
I only had a quick look. Maybe you will have more luck?

Med venlig hilsen fra England.

This replaces the printer cable you now have. The link I provided plugs into your usb port and then the adapter plugs into the cable and the end of the adapter goes into the printer. It has to be 2 pieces since no one makes the mini-parallel to usb only the regular parallel to usb and the adapter makes the regular parallel into mini-parallel.
