I have just repaced a Windows XP Desktop PC to which I had connected an HP DeskJet 880C printer via a Parallel Printer Cable. I think the driver dowloaded from Microsoft was for an 882C and it worked fine.
My new PC is an HP Laptop. My question is can I just use a Parallel to USB cable to plug the two devices together and how do I obtain a suitable driver please?
Any help will be gratefully received and any suggestions aooreciated,

I installed Windows 7 on new HD, picked HP 882 driver when loading hp 880c and everything seemed fine. Then for the first time since loading Win 7 I went to print a photo and it cam out horrible. No face on one pic, different hues on the other. Changed out cartridge to eliminate possible bad cartridge, same problem.
Prining all other ways works well, photo prints are the only problem. Any suggestions? Not a driver problem? Thanks.
