I am unable to install my Multipass printer on a new laptop running Windows
XP. I have downloaded a new driver that is compatible with the XP but as
soon as the installation starts I get a message that the printer is not
connected. I am connecting using a parallel port on a Port Replicator. The
replicator works because I have other things plugged into it that work just
fine. Does anyone have a suggestion?

When I use the "Install Printer" wizard, it does not recognize the driver.
I need help.

Thanks,

Thanks Carl,
I was hoping to not have to buy a new printer. My laptop does not have a
parallel port on it so that is why I am using the replicator.

I am wondering if anyone has tried this and made it work?

Thanks.

No parallel port, how about a serial port? You can get an adapter plug
from Radio Shack or Circuit City to switch your printer cable to USB, or
serial. Although, recommend USB.

Thanks, I have tried an adaper USB port to parallel on my printer. The same
thing happened. I am wondering if something on my Windows XP is blocking the
installation? I have a serial port on my laptop. Do you think that would
work?

Anything to keep from buying a new printer when this one is a multifunction.

Thanks, EdieCas
