LPT2 Devices

By rapaznovo ·
I added a second parallel port to my system,
it's an SIIG card.
The problem is that under Win2000 or Win NT
I'am unable to see my HP 5300 scanner or a parallel port hard drive (simple tech Simple Drive),using this LPT2, no problems with the printer. No problems using these devices on LPT1.These devices both work fine on LPT1 or LPT2 under Win ME and Win98.
Any help will be appriciated.

I tried this once on the same problem and it worked.
I connected an additional parallel port and it started having conflicts with my sound card. Sounds crazy.I took out my sound card and all is fine.
Try it. This may work for you.

Greetings,

Some "add-on" parallel cards won't work with Windows 2000. (Just like "some" switch boxes.) When this happened to me I had to replace the (very old) parallel card with a newer one.
