I have an HP LJ 1320, I am sharing this printer for use over the network. I want to also provide drivers for Win NT4, 2000, at the "additional drivers" screen. However once it copies all the files off the disc it is still listed as "No" for not having those drivers installed for other PC's on the network. I can't figure out why it copies files and always says the drivers are not installed. I even tried a few different operating systems in that list and for some reason it always says no with this particular printer, anyone know why it is doing this?

Some driver cds will not upload the files in a format that cetain os can understand. I always just copy the enitre cd contents to a shared drive that can be accessed from all the pcs. Then when you install the printer just browse to it for drivers.
