Product details

Product Description

If you find that your new computer doesn't have a standard parallel port, this USB to Mini-Centronics IEEE 1284-C cable set is perfect to connect these older printers to a USB only computer. Installation is very easy and straightforward. Simply plug the USB connector to your computer and the Mini-Centronics end to your printer then you are ready to print. If you're using Windows XP or Vista, the USB drivers install automatically. Then, you'll need to install the individual printer drivers, most of which are built into Windows XP. Please note: These adapters will work with Multi-Function or All-In-One printers, but only for printing (in other words, they won't allow you to use the faxing or scanning functions). Also, they do not work with anything other than printers. They will not work with other parallel devices.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Adapter 20 Mar 2010
By S. Seale - Published on Amazon.com

I recently purchased a USB to Mini Centronics Combo Cable so that I could use my older model laser printer with my new netbook. I searched everywhere trying to find the right connection and found this device on Amazon. Some reviews said it might not work, but it worked perfectly from the the first hook-up. I am so pleased with this product which was very easy to install and use. It saves so much money being able to print with laser rather than inkjet. I highly recommed this cable for anyone looking to do the same. The seller was great--advertising something that was a perfect solution to adapting an older printer to a netbook, and in delivering the product very quickly. Thank you!USB to Mini Centronics Combo Cable Set, 5 Ft

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy!!! 7 Sep 2010

Best purchase and decision I have made!!! This cable allows me to use my very dependable HP Laserjet 1100 with my new computer. I had already spent money at Best Buy and Fry's trying to locate a cable that would work and I was about to purchase new printer until I saw Sewell USB Parallel Cable being advertised here at Amazon. Printing is excellent and I have no problems with it, feels just like new. Thank you Sewell Electronics you will the first company I research for my computer needs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cable worked just fine! 7 Aug 2010

The centronics to USB cable worked exactly as it should. My only problem was that my "free" HP Laserjet 1100 prints only in light grey. But if your printer is working great, this cable is a godsend.
5.0 out of 5 stars Got it to work 25 April 2014

Somehow my Dell Tech was here and got it to work with my Windows 7 Professional PC.
I couldn't get it to work but he did.
It may take some bit of trial and error to get the drivers put in etc.
Cable fits perfectly onto the input port of the HP1100 printer and works with standard USB outlet.
Glad to find this.

Entirely effortless to have this venerable printer keep running from either Windows XP (32 bit) or Windows 7 (64 bit) machines.
