Questions and Answers

Do you have you a question about the NEWlink USB to Parallel Bi-Directional Cable?

Q: I have an old printer that I want to connect to a Windows 10 PC. I know there are issues about the printer drivers, but will this cable work OK with Windows 10 please?
Answer by Dan on 23rd September 2015
NEWlink haven't updated the driver for this cable since Windows XP, in theory it should work but we have no way to test this to confirm unfortunately. -Danlevan
