How do i put photo paper in a HP Deskjet 5740?


Depending what size of photo paper you are trying to load, you will get slightly different instructions, see HP's website for tutorials for various types/sizes of paper.

Printer only works on one USB port


You can swap thye ports areound on Vista, but Xp is more difficult. What happens is the USB is converted to an LPT port like lpt1 or 2. This remains in the device manager list because it is usally a fairly permanent object. USB printers are rarely totally USB, like other items. So windows fails to recognise the printer on other ports or, it will require a new installation for that port. With Vista you can go into Device manager and reassign a USB port to a printer port. XP is another ball game you might not want to play in.
