Do you have any documentation on it?
How did it originally conect to its controller?
How are you connecting now?
Can you take some pictures of the drives etc and attach them.

Is your Windows 7 computer 64 or 32 bit?  Parallel port won't work on 64 bit.

Take pics of the hardware (drives, breakout board etc) see if you can get makers name and model numbers from them.

Could you possibly post a picture of the circuit board which your LPT parallel port cable connects to on the machine ?
