I have been experiencing very slow printing with this new Win2K system (stand-alone, administrator login).
Now I am noticing that there is no PrinterDevice listed in the Device manager. But... the printer IS a listed in the ControlPanel-->printers.
Is this supposed to be like this (no printer device in device manager?) I have tryed to reinstall the latest win2000 printer drivers but no printer device shows up. To make things worse, even though I can print right now, Windows starts up and still *detect* the printer as *new* every time.
(Is it a BIOS setting thing thats messing me up?)

Yes it is normal for printer not show in Device manager.
I guess you are right. In the DeviceManager under the "view" tab it says "Show Hidden devices" and that's when the printer shows up.
But, I can still not explain the slower printing performance.
Changing from EMF to RAW datatype doesn't help enough.
what do you call "slow"?
