I have a client with a Canon Pixma MP 600 printer. It's attached to a Win 7 machine via USB cable and works fine. He wants to print to it over the network with a Win XP machine. Unfortunately, we cannot make that happen. No matter what we try, we come up against incompatible drivers.
Interesting thing is that the printer works just fine when attached to the XP machine.Once it is attached to the network, though, all bets are off.
I'm almost thinking it's a network problem, but sitting at the XP machine, I can see the files on the Win 7 machine as well as the printer. Even went so far as to try to install the XP drivers on the Win 7 machine, as you are supposed to be able to do this in order to support other operating systems. Win 7 machine says there are no compatible drivers on either the install disk or downloaded software.
Anyone have any ideas on this?
