THis is an interesting twist. The 200/NT drivers will work under XP but only on a virgin install of XP. If you upgraded from Windows ME, the drivers won't work.

I don't know why, but I upgraded my computer to XP and I couldn't get the printer to work reliably. Based on someones recommendation, I did a virgin install and low and behold the printer now works.

There are still a few glitches (the printer soddenly becomes unavailable) but it works 95% of the time. I have a small network with all on my computers printing to the BJC-5000 and they can all successfully print to the shared printer on my computer.

Take Care.
