You have a printer attached to computer A that is shared with computer B. You are on computer B with something in the print Que but computer A is not turned on OR - there is a problem with your network communications.

Turn on computer A; clear your Que on computer B; resolve (reboot everything that makes up the network) the communications proble.

    so what happened???

    Well my friend, a network resource remains a network resource by any other name. It was your comment that would lead a reasonable person to believe you did have a network, though that bit of information was missing from your question. Based on what you said, a reasonable person would believe you do have a network of some type.

    Your problem is under the heading of PRINTER, yet you spoke about a problem when you REBOOT. A reasonable person would presume that since most printers do not return this type of error code that you would be rebooting your computer. So, where does this question belong? Computer or Printer?

    What is a network? A network can be comprised of any number of parts. At a minimum, I would expect a network would have a connection to the WWW, (a modem of some kind) and a computer. Voa-la, a network! Network resources can be any type device or service and can be added or removed at any time. Some would claim your attached printer would be an extension of the basic network you have.

    I'm sorry you found my volunteer assistance ... ' was useless'. I did the best I could to answer your question based upon the merits and points you stated in your question.

    Thanks for your feedback

Error message - The feature you are trying to use

Seems like you have a Server and client setup and the Roxio Software you are talking about is located on the server. So what you can do is give the software a path to the installation folder of this software. For example if you have the setup on desktop, give the path to the desktop and then to the setup.

>I downloaded the Roxio programme so i have not got a copy.

I am not sure I understand this. You downloaded the program but you don't have a copy?
