Question about HP LaserJet 1020 Printer

1 Answer

Either the USB Flash Drive or the Printer, not both

I have a problem. I have an HP Laserjet 1020 connected to my pc. When I connect my flash 2GB drive, it gives me an error. When I take the printer off the pc, then it sees the 2GB just fine. I can use either of them at a time. Either the flash drive or the printer. I have run the updates. What could be the problem ?

Does HP laserjet 1020 work with Airport Express

I removed any printer configurations for this printer in both my pc and my mac (both usb and wireless). Then I restarted both computers and added the printer via usb again to each. At that point I went back to the extreme configuration and under the printers tab it was finally seeing Hewlett Packard Laserjet 1020. After that, adding via Bonjour went smoothly on both platforms.
