I have this motherboard....MSI K9N6PGM2-V2......, and I have an old Epson AP5000 printer that we use for a Rural Water District Software program. My wife does the books. I recently upgraded the old computer to this new one with the MSI K9N6PGM2-V2 motherboard. Only problem, it does not have the old 25 pin connector for this printer. Some friends suggested buying a cable, which I did, to plug into the motherboard, it is an "IDC 26/DB25 motherboard parallel port connector cable". Looks like it would fit, but when I physically tried to install the cable, the end of the cable is "too" wide for the slot on the motherboard, which is (JLPT1). I am at a loss, as other adapter cables look to be exactly what I purchased. Any help would be greatly appreciated, as my wife is getting very "upset" with me, as she needs to do her water books by tomorrow!
thanks so much,
