Our goal here is to connect to PC computer, a Genesis padd.

If we plug padd, we can see all lights are ok (Genesis red LED), but it's impossible to make it known by Operating System, because use COM port.
We have to find another way : parallel plug.
Our first problem : the printer connector is "Centronics" plug, so impossible to use it !
There are some adapters, but they are expensive, and internal connexions are unknown, and we go to conflicts. Also, find a male plug for this connector is not common.

We know some softwares to control pads from parallel port (PPJoy - DirectPad Pro ..), so we just have to find components for following plans :

.. that means male parallel plug, serial port, 7 diods.
