Question about Xerox Phaser 240 Thermal Printer
With most printers there is a software download for your printer. Download and install the software should walk you through the process. That said, plug in the USB into your New PC and the software should find a driver, i don't know your OS, and it SHOULD work. You may not get the Full fuctions of the printer until you install the Full software for the printer. If this is your printer the software will be found here, in case you do not have it:http://www.support.xerox.com/support/phaser-240/downloads/enus.html?operatingSystem=win7x64 I do not see that it is wireless? Just connect to the New PC via a USB port in the rear of the new PC. Use Device and Printers on start menu to ADD a Printer. When you have added the printer, right click and choose Sharing, Share this Printer. Set up a Home network on the New PC that has the printer attached. Re-Boot. On your laptop set up to the Home network that you just created on the NewPC with the printer. Reboot the laptop, you will get a network message like Welcome to "your: network. Go to the laptops printer section in start menu and Add a Printer, it will pop up if configured correctly, some changes may be made in Network and Sharing. Now you can print through your network "wirelessly". if you need assistance respond to this post.

Can you advise which operating system you are using? Assuming 32bit windows: Unplug the printer from the USB and try deleting the printer from the printers folder. Then download the latest driver from the Canon web site. Once you have you have it, in the control panel go to SYSTEM and into HARDWARE tab and then DEVICE MANAGER. Look under UNIVESAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS and check that there are NO yellow symbols. If there are yellow symbols you need to remove the offending item from the list (making a note of it's description) and then reboot your machine. When it comes back up it should advise that new hardware has been found and go through the process of installing the drivers. You can now go the manufacturers web site and download the USB controller driver for your device. If the file is a zip extract it to a folder on your PC. When it asks if it can go online to find a suitable driver, let it do so and you can also specify a location for it look (where you extracted the download above) Once it finds the driver required and has finished installing it, reboot your system and then install the printer driver you just downloaded. Hopefully this will get you back on the go. If you have a windows 64 bit system I'm afraid you are on your own. 64 bit drivers that work are very hard to come by. Let us know if this is any use to you, if not we may more to offer.

Purchase a PCMCIA parallel port adapter. the USB to parallel adapters are a pain to set up and are flakey at best. The PC card adapter provides a native parallel port to laptops without one, and works perfectly in ALL cases, even with the scanner cartridge. In Vista, the printer may then be manually installed from its list of printers, and set to use the new LPT port.

I had the same issue with Windows 7 64 bit.I managed to solve it by doing the following
1. Locate the scan2pc.exe program in C:\Windows\twain_32\Samsung\CLX3170 2. Right-click/properties - Compatibility tab. 3.Set compatibility to win xp. Set "Run as Administrator"
I also added the scan2pc.exe to the firewall allowed programs (did that for scanmgr.exe as well, but I don't think I needed to).
Works great now!
