Why can't I print to an HP Laserjet 1200 through a parallel pci card?

By cmmtz1207 ·
I have no problems printing through a USB to parallel adapter cable, but I installed a pci card for the parallel port and the print jobs are deleting themselves in queue. I have tried all listed drivers on the HP support site and none of them work. The card is showing up as LPT3 for the port. The OS is Vista Basic on a Dell Inspiron. PCI card is showing as installed properly.

Well just the obvious

What driver did you install for the PCI Card?

Also did you set the Printer to be sent jobs from the LPT3 Port?

It's possible that the PCI Card isn't supported by Vista and that is your problem here.

But none the less if you have got this working with a USB to Parallel Adapter I would use that is you can Daisy Chain USB Hubs up to 128 Devices per USB Port, though if you want to plug in that many USB Devices and some need power from the USB Port you'll need to add in several Powered USB Hubs.
