I need a cable to enable connection from Epson lq
The "data" cable for a printer either is:
* USB -- a small almost-square socket, less than 1/2 inch (1 centimeter),
* parallel-port -- a very-wide connector, more than 2 inches (5 centimeters).
Some printers have *BOTH* connectors.
Determine which connector(s) you have, and buy a cable.
Often, a "Thrift Store" will have the "parallel-port" cable for a dollar.
Don't pay more than $4 for a "USB" cable.
If you're buying a USB cable, make sure that there is a "square" end -- some USB cables have a smaller "mini-USB" connector, in order to connect to a digital camera.

Want to print draft mode in dot matrix printer in
Not all dot matrix printers will print in draft mode. When operating from DOS it was usually necessary to send an Esc(ape) code such as ESC @ in ASCII code. I don't think it can be done from Windows; in fact some windows programs will not even talk to a dot matrix printer. Some printers have one or two banks of DIP switches, but before changing them you need to read the manual to see what they do. There could be one which allows Draft MOde.
