:tazz: I am trying to upgrade a computer that is used with automotive diagnostic equipment.
It is a DTK Corp. 286, © 1986/90 Datatech Enterprises Co.,Ltd. # 26120590
one of the devices plugs into a pair of what look like parallel ports only they are the male ends, instead of female, They are also labled "com1 and com2" (see attached pic)
What I really want to know is if there is a pci card that would have these, or maybe adaptor cables to fit some other interface (serial, USB, etc..) ;)
Thanks in advance!

Newegg has an adapter AMC USBA-S109 USB to Serial/PDA (DB9 and DB25) Converter...it should work for what you said you were trying to do. Comes with an additional adapter head for the parallel connection also.
