NO it wont work.  Essencially the hardware is thie same, but the comm port differ.  If it were possible to get a "conversion" cable, then you would be battleing , as the "firmware" in the printer then wants apple type information - not PC type information.  Therefore there is no driver that you can use that is commercially availabel (there is no market, so no-one sells it, or write it.)

Cheers
