I've switched from a parallel port to the Smooth Stepper USB adapter and have been very happy. It's working flawlessly with Mach and my Taig mill even on an Acer Aspire One netbook.

guys,
I have a driver board with parallel port and I would like to use USB, so:
is possible to use a parallel port adapter for USB connection and then use MACH4, it will work well?

The USB to Parallel port cables are intended for printers and will not work at present with Mach3.
As mentioned previously the smooth stepper will connect a USB port to driver board with 25 way cannon D connector and work with Mach3. I occasionally use the SS (with one machine only) and am very pleased with it.
