The only option is to buy a usb to parallel cable. Then pray the gods are good to you and you are able to find a driver so you can use it.

i gave up and went back to the apple store and asked them if i could have the rebate special for a printer i that refused yesterday when i thought to hook up my old dinosaur instead. they obliged and i got a canon pixma ip4500 for 19 dollars after the rebate plus 25 dollars for the cable. so this cost me about as much as a usb serial adapter cable would have cost. go figure!!

I LOVE MY NEW 24" IMAC!!! it is beautiful and amazing!!!

now, i need to figure out how to download music onto my ipod!!
QUOTE Thanks
