Acabo de comprar un nuevo portátil y me he dado cuenta de que no tiene puerto paralelo. Por lo tanto, no lo puedo conectar a la impresora y, lo que es mucho más importante, no puedo conectar el ‘dongle’ de TraDos..

Necesito un Conversor USB -> Puerto Paralelo. Vivo en Madrid (zona Goya) y he preguntado en algunas tiendas por aquí, pero nadie lo tiene. ¿Alguién me puede decir algún sitio en Madrid donde lo podría comprar?

¡Muchas gracias!

I have just bought a new laptop and have discovered that it doesn't have a parallel port, which means I can't connect it to the printer and, more importantly can't attach the TraDos dongle.

I need a USB to Parallel Port converter. But I have asked in several shops in my area (central Madrid) but none of them have them.

Does anyone know where in Madrid would be a good place to get one?

Be careful, a USB-parallel adaptor will be ok for your printer, but not for a parallel dongle. What you need to do is either return your dongle to Trados to get a USB version instead (write to them to see if it's still possible, given the fact that they don't offer it anymore), or change to softkey Trados, or get a PCMCIA card to insert in a slot in your portable that will provide you with a real parallel port.

You may also call "Efecto 2000", my component supplier, which have always come out more competitive: 902 501 549. (Shop is near Pacífico).
