Windows 7 Pro HP 8200 Desktop and Sunix USB to Parallel Converter not working properly


I have just put a new PC in on a POS machine which is a HP 8200 i5 Windows 7 Pro x64

We have a Citizen CBM1000 connected to a Sunix USB to Parallel Converter

This converter has been taken from the Old PC which was working fine and put on the new PC and now not

In the Printer and Devices it is Listed a as IEEE-1284 Controller and in the unspecified group

The USB Virtual Port 001 is there not working properly and the old PC did not have this Unspecified Item

Can anyone help, Urgently if possible had this POS Terminal Down for a few days now

Thanks Adam

Can you use a Parallel to USB converter cable. I have done that in Windows 7 for a parallel printer. It might work better than an older card.

If it is a converter cable, try a newer cable. That would be the simplest solution.
