I have windows me on a system which is a couple of
months old. I bought an okidata okipage14e printer
which is USB and Parallel port compatible. However,
Windows ME refuses to configure the on-board USB port
to use my printer.
The new hardware and software wizards are not in sync
with the driver cd. When I use the install command on
the cd then Windows printer folder says it is there,
but Win ME can't use it. When I use the hardware and
software wizards in ME it asks for files it says are
not on the cd.
The printer manual gives a different set of orders
and sequences than the Win ME wizards.
Why can't these companies create programs that can
"shake hands" instead of all of this nonsense ? My
real question is HOW DO I RESOLVE THIS PROBLEM ???
HELP !!!
