My computer is an HP Pavilion 6248x PC with the Windows Vista Home Premium operating system.

My printer is an HP LaserJet 5 previously connected via a parallel cable to a PC using the Windows XP Home operating system. I have successfully (The Windows Printer Test Page prints properly, and the MSN Internet Explorer Print command functions.) connected the printer using a Belkin USB Parallel Printer Adapter cable.

However, I cannot route an HP PCL print file to the printer when in the DOS mode using the DOS print command ("print file >PRN" or "print file >LPT1"). HELP!

Any assistance received in helping me to solve my problem will be greatly appreciated.
