I've asked about the Laserjet 1000 and although I haven't received a thorough answer, I believe the answer is the same for the 1200. Isn't the 1200 a host based printer (software on the computer, not within the printer) like the 1000? In addition is not 64 bit compliant. I haven't gotten any of the drivers
to work even using the compatibility mode. I know this doesn't help get your printer working, but I'm just trying to verify that my thinking is correct and there's no hope for the HP laser 1000/1200. Bummer!
