I'd try a USB to parallel port adapter. One thing though, be sure to research this before getting one. The last thing you want is a flaky adapter. I haven't tried a usb to parallel port adapter yet, but I have tried a usb to serial adapter. Mine unfortunately is a flaky one and requires mutliple plugin's to get it to work correctly. I generally use it to connect a Garmin Etrek gps to my pc.

Also, verify there are drivers available for the version of Windows you are using.
