I have come across a problem with establishing a connection to an HP D2545 Deskjet printer on another computer in my network. The computer that is directly attached to the printer is Windows XP, and mine is Vista Basic. When I attempt to add the printer via a network connection, it finds it; however, when I try to establish a network connection to it, I get the following error:
"Windows cannot connect to the printer. Operation could not be completed (error 0x0000003b)."
With the previous printer, I was able to connect by having it pose as a local device. However, when I attempt to do it that way, I get this message:
"A device attached to the system is not functioning."
Any help is appreciated!
