i tried to install a printer, was getting this error: "Printer Not Responding"
on LTP1, LTP2.

LTP3 had something else to say, something about communicating ?, if i remember just a little correctly,
but didn't finish.

what should bios settings be  ? some  ECP+EPP or somethings like that ?
some other windows settings ?

OS: Windows XP sp2, Printer: Canon PIXMA iP1000

first, test the printer on another PC, or test your lpt port with a working printer.
the bios settings ECP+Epp  will work in most cases; but for some i have seen it necessary tio use the SPP settings.
however, this has nothing to do with the printer not responding. This means it simply does not see the printer.
that's why you have to test the port first - you can also check for errors in device manager.

Do the printers own test print first to make sure that the printer itself is working ok. If that is ok then set to ecp+epp and add it on LPT1.  If you have any printers installed already then remove them before starting.

try unistalling the lpt port and restarting, letting xp find and install the port again.

As it is a USB printer, LPT ports are irrelevant, it should be using usb0 or it may have another proprietary port.
Usually, USB printers-= install the software first, then connect the printer.

could also be a virtual USB port pointing at an LPT port.
