Jtag Emulator

I want to buy a development kit and there is option to choose which JTAG emulator. One is USB-based ($50) and the other one is parallel port-based($14). My computer/laptop doesn't have the parallel port. So, I forced to buy the double-priced USB-based emulator (the DK itself only about $50). I wonder if it is possible to buy a parallel-to-USB converter to do the job. Therefore, I can get the cheaper price parallel port. I have asked the company itself, but they are saying 'it definately will not work!'. I am just affraid they are hardselling the one with higher price to me. Thanks....
