System I'm working on is a Dell Dimension 4600C PC, running XP Home Ed SP2, all patches have been applied. This printer is a Printer, scanner, copier model and is a USB device. Emulation (no boot) has been disabled in Legacy Hardware settings, because the System would fail to boot to Windows from hard drive, yet it still shows up in the Device Manager Tree as being a hard drive.

Hi C J.

If you printer has flash memory slots, It may appear as a drive. It would act the same as if it were a USB thumb/flash drive.

I hope this helps,

Yes, your right. I just found that out from chatting HP Support online in Pakistan LOL! It must be a killer printer when the drivers and software are all installed right. Thanks for your reply.
