comment Parport scanners
Good Luck! I have an OLD laptop in a closet with a par port, and I haven't even seen that in like a year. I know you just want to get it working, but places like thrift shops often have them for like $3-4 (assuming you're in the US) Just be sure to check online for drivers before purchase.
