i was of the understanding that usb printer drivers communication is different than on parallel, so i don't think it will work -- otherwise you can create any port you like in the windows printer control panel. and if the MODE thing doesn't work for you, there's a win32 port re-director called "redmon". If redirecting from lpt1 to usb works for you, please let us know.
