Unable to print from XP mode

Hi All,

I have an old printer (Brother 1430) attached to my new PC running windows 7 via the LPT1 port. It works well in Windows 7 but I am unable to print from XP mode.

I have installed the drivers into XP mode and it seems to be recognised by XP but no luck with printing. Have tried a USB connector but again no success.

Would greatly appreciate advice or direction to a thread that will help.

Cheers
