Default Velleman PCS500 with USB port

Is there a way to connect a Velleman PCS500 oscilloscope to a USB port? In the Velleman support forum it is said that a commercial parallel-to-USB converter will not work. Any ideas about something that could work?
Regards.

Paul

It might work if you have a powered port.

I'm afraid i have not understood your suggestion. What do you mean with "powered port" ? And do you know any commercial device with a "powered port"?

I may not have understood yours. I have a different Vellman that has a USB connector and needs 5v, so hubs don't always work. It sounds like yours has a different connection, so no, I guess I have no suggestions. Sorry.
