Where can I find an adapter or cable to connect a scanner with a parallel rs 232 25 pin connection, to a computer with only usb connections?

Use a USB Hub with parallel connector then all you need is a 25 to 25 straight through cable. I think that Belkin have such a hub but I'm using a USB Bay hub & it works OK. Availability depnds on location but in the UK the USB-Bay is available at Maplins the Belkin stuff is world-wide.

Look for the adapter at www.cyberguys.com
It carries several products that you may be able to use for this purpose.

The rs232 connector that you see in the scanner is for an SCSI interface, thus you can't connect (adapt) to usb interface. You have to buy a scsi card.

Hope it help!!!
