I am using an USB-to-parallel port adapter on Windows 7. It was recognized by the system, and everything work fine.

BUT: When I print something on an Epson LQ-1050+ printer, empty lines appear between the printed lines. (As if auto line feed were switched on, or something similar)

On a laser printer for example, printing just works fine. (And no other problems with Epson either, just those additional empty lines.)

Any idea?

Thank you very much,

"As if auto line feed were switched on" - So did you verify that auto line-feed DIP switch is turned off? Maybe the printer driver (advanced printer options) also has an auto line freed option? – sawdust Apr 26 '12 at 19:19
Does the Windows test page print correctly? – user3463 Apr 26 '12 at 23:47

This may not be a solution for you, but if you're on a desktop you may want to consider a PCI adaptor for Parallel so that you don't have a media change issue.
