I got a free Sabrent|SBT-UPPC USB to Parallel 6-Foot Printer Cable from a guy who said it didn't work. I plugged it into my system and it worked flawlessly. That is until I upgraded my motherboard, now the cable will not identify and shows up as an unknown device. In case the cable was bad I tried it on another system and again it's working just fine.
I have tried removing the device from device manager and reconnecting as per manufacture directions, no success.
