A DB25-Mini din8 is the cable you need. It's a standard cable used with Mac modems, you might need a null modem to get it to print, I don't remember off the top of my head whether it'll need one or not. An ImageWriter II should work just fine.

The ADMP is a parallel version of the ImageWriter I and will also work with the Lisa when connected as its name implies over a Lisa parallel port- if you can find this printer.

There was also a Canon InkJet that worked with the Lisa and allowed for color printing. Received on 2008-10-24 23:28:50
