View Full Version : serial ports

Hi again.

My blue G3 has a 4 pronged serial port. What is the difference between a 4 prong and an 8 prong? Wondering if I can plug a printer into the 4 prong port or is that only for keyboards?
A couple of people I know have good used printers for sale, but they are not usb compatible.

It's not a serial port, it's an ADB - Apple Desktop Bus - port, for plugging in beige keyboards, mice etc.
