hello, i have some old devices that use a parallel port(n64 gameshark) and since its 2013 my computer doesn't have a parallel port. i was thinking to use an arduino to emulate a parallel port(db25). but, i need to make it so my computer thinks is has a parallel port or these old programs wont work. and suggestion of how i can do this?

Try a parallel port card like the one at http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?N=100007531%20600022012&IsNodeId=1&Submit=ENE

I would second the suggestion of just getting a parallel port card of some nature.

Otherwise - what is your ability at writing device drivers? Ever did that? Because that is what you will need to know -first- before even starting such a project...
I will not respond to Arduino help PM's from random forum users; if you have such a question, start a new topic thread.
