    I have an old Lexmark Z12 printer that i want to connect to my laptop. I've been into my local computer store to get an adaptor for the parallel lead and they quoted me £20. I've just found one of these leads online for £3. Is it possible though that because of the printers age my laptop will not recognise the USB drivers ???

    i'm sorry but the last driver released was for windows xp, personally i'd cut my losses and buy a new printer the epson sx range is pretty good.
