722C has a parallel cable only. Added a good parallel to usb cable. Connected directly to a usb port on Dell Inspiron 530S using Vista Home Premium, Service Pack1. Added a printer. Vista says driver installed. When I try to print a test page or print a page from a ms product I see the page in the printer buffer and it says it is printing, then disappears. No printing takes place. Best I can figure out is that the driver is in place but VISTA does not actually see the printer. Have tried different usb ports. Printer works with XP but not VISTA. Any thoughts as to how to work around this problem? Thanks.
Appreciated the reply. Unfortunately I already tried it. This screen provides for usb to usb or parallel to parallel but not parallel to usb. The 722C has a parallel only (no usb) and the Dell has usb only (no parallel). I tried the usb to usb method shown (using the parallel to usb) and vista saw the 722C and installed the driver on startup, but when you try to test print or print it no longer sees the printer. I have gotten something to the effect of unknown device when I get out to the printer and ports. Any other thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.
