Hi Monty

You would need to use a Pico USB adaptor, and this would then work. Other adaptors are not compatible.

With regards it not working on the parallel port, I recommend checking the settings in the BIOS of the computer to see what mode the parallel port is set to. Try the other modes available to see if any of them work.

Best Regards
