i used to do this by using the "virtual" com ports. Scince the USB is always associated with a com: port.

try replacing LPT1: by COM1:, COM2... etc. try them all. In my PC i've got a total of 9 COM: ports!

here is what i used, it's working fine:

        Open "COM1:" For Output As #1
            Print #1, Chr$(27); Chr$(112); Chr$(0)
        Close #1

it's just like yours but i'm using the coms. try all numbers untill you get it right. (see in the harware panel how many you've got)

tell me how it goes.
