How to get two identical printers to work on one computer (Panasonic  Laser Model: KX-P7100)

Hi,

I bought two Panasonic Laser Printers (http://www.panasonic.com.au/catalogue/details.cfm?pcode=KX%2DP7100&pdiv=MLP&cat=33_6 Model: KX-P7100) intending to use them on the same computer.

I asumed that one could be on a Parallel port and the other on the USB. When I install the second one the comp complains that it is already installed.

If I manually set one printer to the Parallel Port (or vise versa the USB port) spool.exe crashes, no printers are recognised and

How do I get the two printers working on the same computer, either on different ports or both on USB. (Needs to be automatic - can't be using a manual switch)

Thanks,

J

Hi This was my first question - and there has been no response.

Is the question to hard, or have I done something wrong?

Any advice appreciated,

Hi Jimmy,

What you may need to do is get a PCI paralell card and set it as LPT2. Then you'd need to Add New Printer and manually set it to the new port.

Good Vibes!
