    hi guys
    this is my first time to send here

    i'd like to have a little help from U in this problem

    i have a USB to parallel converter which i use to print as i have no parallel in my mother
    anyway i want to give the out parallel of the converter the address 378-37F as if it was a parallel port so that i can use assembly to interface the PC through this out
    please if any one can help , reply here or better reply on this mail:

    thanks in advance

    Hi There,

    Go to System in control panel and select hardware, then device manager. The Converter should be seen either as a USB device or as a port. You should be able to see the adress range for the device here, or even edit it if you have turned off the northbrige ECP controller in the BIOS.

    Alot of motherboards do not have Parallel ports, but the northbridge consumes these adresses anyway.

    Hope this helps
