Re: samsung kicked out hp 3in 1 printer already installed

Don't have your HP designated as the default printer (if possible)when you hook up the Samsung. When the Samsung is hooked up it sees the HP is the default printer. Well it can't have that, they discard the HP drivers. What does Samsung care about HP drivers theres only one printer port setup and thats the USB port you have them sharing. So yes you need to get a second cable. Tim

I am faceing the problem hp dj t1100 inkjet printer. No connectivity avaiable.

For a single computer you can install a JetDirect card and assign an IP address. Then connect the computer to the plotter directly through the ethernet connection on the computer using a cross-over cable (standard ethernet cable will not work unless you use a hub). Another option is to simply use a USB cable connection. Drivers are available from, Support, Downloads.

Connect printer

XP and Win2000 are the same NT platform and are different from Win98SE and if you have the correct drivers installed for each then a single USB cable is sufficient as long as the printer is pointed to that port/device.
