Help me find parallel port card and cables, please.
« on: September 19, 2009, 09:59:52 PM »
So, I'm looking for 25-pin straight through cables.  I have questions in to a few ebay sellers, but nobody seems to specify if all the pins go through.

Also, can someone point me to a parallel port card that is known to work with mach / breakout bords. (i.e. I've read that some have lower voltages and cause problems.)

Ok, scratch the cable part... I found some on ebay right after posting.

I still need guidance on a parallel port card though.  Thanks.

Make sure the card is Windows XP compliant. Buy locally with the understanding that if it dosen't work you will get a full
 refund.

Do a search on this forum. I posted the card and the exact drivers you need to work with MACH, and how to set it up.
