Default Going from 25-pin printer switch to USB type B Printer?

I have a client using an older 25-pin (parallel) printer switch and is needing to go to a USB type B printer. I guess we need either a 25-pin to USB B cable or a USB A to B adapter would also work, but I haven't been able to find either.
Can someone point me in the right direction?

Have you tried to connect it to a USB and install the drivers and stuff and see if it works? If not then try that. I am thinking the only difference from A and B is that one's 1.0 and other one is 2.0 either way it should still work with a normal USB connector.
