Can't find a printer cable

Wow.. I did not think this was going to be so hard... I can't find any cable where you can split the 2 parts off the connector end.. most of them now are all one peice.

I was going to build a parellel display for my mom to show the weather, if this is how it's going to be I might as well just get a serial model?
Looking for additional LCD resources? Check out our LCD blog for the latest developments in LCD technology.


All in all, less headaches and I do not believe CF supports parallel displays in home computers.

Verify with CF about the support, tho.

I am not quite sure what you are trying to do, I either cut one end off or went to radio shack and bought a D-Sub 25 connector.

However I would go with serial, they are more reliable.
