USB Port on HP PhotoSmart 8450 printer... Only USB 1.1?
Hello. I have a HP PhotoSmart 8450 printer. I used its USB port, on the
bottom left of the printer, to connect USB 2.0 Flash Sticks/Drives/...
It seems to access files very slow. It feels like USB 1.1 speed. Does
anyone know if this is supposed to be 2.0 speed? Is there a way to check?
I was not able to find this information in my printer manual and on HP's
I tried disconnecting the printer from the computer motherboard's USB
port WITH its 2'(?) USB extension cord (printer is on my bookshelf and
not close enough to the computer) and connecting the same USB s...HP USB Printers
We use NC6000 notebooks and sometimes when we plug a usb printer or run
off the network we see "two printers" become available. Once with the
standard name and then another with the same name but (Copy 1) behind
it. The "(Copy 1)" selection works but the other does not. Why is it
creating this other "Copy 1" driver?

Because you have your PC set to automatically look for network File and
network Printers.....if it find one, it will install it!

I dont understand. We pull the driver off the server and it installs
the two versions. How do we get it to stop?

Most USB 2 devices are backword campatable to USB 1.1 and maybe 1. I
would try and if doesn't work you can purchase a USB 2 PCI card cheap
$10-$20 Most computer stores do carry them. Note there are PCMCA USB
2 card also but they are not cheap at about $80.
If the printer has the official USB logo on it it has to be backwards

Hi all, is this printer USB 1.1 or USB 2??

Which doesnt tell me a hell of a lot lol.
Any info appreciated
From the truly sketchy information on the HP web site, I would have to guess
that the PSC1210 supports USB 1.1 and takes advantage of the higher throughput
of USB 2.0. HP supports the product (drivers, etc) running with Windows 98,
which, for all intents and purposes, knows nothing about USB 2.0... Ben Myers

Ta Ben. I finally got a tech online to chat with. And yup
he said its definitely 1.1 and USB2. So, it'll make use of USB2

I have just purchased a hp deskjet 3745. I have no issues with the
printer itself - it works perfectly - rather with the driver
installation. I am well aware that the hp cd must be run through the
system before the printer is connected, and that the add hardware
wizard (windows 98) offers no facility to connect usb printers.
My problem is this: the computer that the printer *must* be installed
upon is a pentium-100, with 16 megabytes of RAM. Thus the hp cd refuses
to install the software. I don't even care about the software (!) all i
want is the usb drivers to make the printer work.
My question, therefore: is anyone aware of a way to get this printer
working thru a manual installation of the driver, or am i stuffed
Somebody please help. Please!
You might try the following:
MAke sure that the pritner is not conencted to the PC. Add a printer in
the normal way instead of through the driver CD. Tell it that you are
printing to "File" as a port instead of USB/LPT1 etc. When you get to
"Have Disc", browse the CD and install the driver without all the other
gubbins that comes with the printer (photo managers etc). When you have
installed it, go back to the printer properties and change the
connection to USB and then connect the cable to the printer. It should
discover it and at least you'll be able to print.

Check to see if there are headers for extra USB ports, and get a rear
plate for it.
Get a cable/DSL modem with ethernet, and a PCI NIC, or a PCI modem if
it is dial-up.
USB is host PC to whatever, not the other way around.

Hi, I'll show my ignorance and ask:
Do USB devices work seamlessly on Macs and PCs (with USB ports)?
Do USB mouses and USB keyboards just plug into a 800MHz 12in iBook?
(You'll see elsewhere I'm looking for a .pdf manual so I will then know
what the various "plug-holes" - ports? - are for.)
I've just got this machine and find the trackpad fiddly, similarly for
the keyboard, so I was going to plug in the keyboard and mouse to
overcome these concerns.
Can I plug in a pair of speakers (again are USB speakers universal to

Correct. Nearly all of the inkjet printers and PSC drives on the market permit
use of one and only one connection at a time between USB and parallel. If they
have parallel ports, that is. In addition, if you decide to switch connections,
you'll need to power off the device, insert a different cable, and power on. In
other words, when the printer "boots up", it checks the cable type.
Why not simply use it as a networked wireless printer shared by all?
