In fact, you would need a PCI parallel port card (especially for C64 disks). If I'm not mistaken, you live in the USA, where, for some reason, those cards are not easily found.

I would still recommend to buy a good PCI card from Lindy. It's a little bit expensive compared to what we can find in Europe, but at least it should be easy to order on-line. Here is the link to the right product:

Along with this, you would of course need a Disk2FDI cable. I don't remember if you made one or anything. Here is the page about this cable:

Please let me know if you need further help.

Vincent.
