I have a software dongle for a rip program that looks for the dongle on LPT1

the computer I have didn't come with a parallel port I installed a pci parallel card and it doesn't see the dongle any ideas. I changed the settings of the card to make it LPT1 but that hasn't helped. PC is an HP Celeron 3.47ghz with 2 gigs ram running XP Pro

Older dongles go straight to the LPT hardware.  The PCI card may be 'logically' LPT1 but it won't look like the old hardware LPT1.  I don't know how to get it to work on a machine like yours without an update from the manufacturer of the dongle or the software.
