I'd like to know is there another way than buying a 130 $USD
adapter, to connect din-8 connector (RS-422 standard interface) to DB-25 connector (RS-232). I know that those standards differ pretty much. Those have different voltages,
and for example RS-422 standard got two voltage pins (+ and -, I mean Txd- and Txd+, Rxd- and Rxd+) when RS-232 standard got only one (Txd and Rxd).

please answer to the following E-mail address:

I suggest that you really go for purchasing the correct printer for your computer.

Although the Adapter may work, it may shorten the life time of the Printer.

I know for a fact that this is easily done with a cable that can be wired yourself or bought at just about any decent electronics store. The balance lines near the top of the RS422 connector are ignored. The rest of the lines are straight through.
