The PC600 has an input parallel. The laptop has USB, the cable will plug into your USB port and will connect to the printer port of the 600. It may slow it down slightly as the USB bus is far far faster than the IEEE 1284 bitrate and you'll load a driver to convert it. Yep it should work fine :wink:
