If you are using a printer on a USB port, you must configure the PORT if XP won't find it. Run the Printer Setup Wizard as a printer connected to your PC. When windows xp doesn't find it, choose to CREATE A PORT, and choose to create a local port, and name it for the printer you want to install. Follow the prompts and you should be good to go.

I have an hp desk jet 3322 printer no cd need to install and configure can u help?


What Operating System do you have? If you have 2000 or XP here are the drivers:

Drivers for XP or 2000


Drivers for Vista + WIndows7
The alternative driver is Deskjet 3600

Or

HP itself for Drivers for Vista + Windows7

Installation
Also note once you get the driver if you are using a USB cable to connect it to the PC, that you install it like this:

1. Make sure the USB cable is not connected to the PC but connected to the Printer
2. Install the driver
3. When prompted then plug the USB cable into the USB port on the PC to complete the installation process.

Tried to connect my NX6310 to my printer which is a HP All-In-One series 6300 BT. Printer will not work and I used the cable USB port to USB port and picked up new drivers, Microsoft Professinal, XP


The trick with windows XP, most of the time is to install the drivers first and wait for the software to ask you to plug in the printer. Try removing the printer from your printer's folder if windows already tried to install it, reboot when it removed, then install the device drivers/software first and when asked...plug in the printer.

Wont connect to pc


Try a new/different USB cable. My Lyra was a painful thing with cables. Also, make sure the plug and receptacle are clean. Improper connection can do this.

Also, you should have gotten a driver CD for the player. It contains the correct drivers for the lyra, and will help Windows XP use the correct USB drivers.

Try those and see what happens. It may just be corrupted USB drivers.

Hope it helps bud!

Toshiba e studio 163 drivers for XP


Try looking here:

http://www.eid.toshiba.com.au/

You need to know if it uses the GDI print system or the optional print board.

Browse the driver section and you should get there.
