Question about HP LaserJet 5p Printer
I have a HP LJ 5P that I have connected to my laptop via a USB to parellel converter cable. I installed the printer and added the drivers both form the XP CD as well as HP website but the issue persists.
When I install the printer, I have to select a USB port. It works fine as long as the laptop is not rebooted or the USB cable not disconnected. Once either of theses happens I have to remove the printer and readd it on a different port to get any more prints.
If anyone has any insights I would appreciate the help. Thanks
