HP DJ970Cse Network Printer & Windows 7
I have a HP Deskjet 970 Cse (parallel) printer attached to a computer that is running XP Sp3 on my network. I want to be able to use the printer across the network with machines running Windows 7 64-bit. When I "Add a Printer" in Windows 7 it "sees" the printer but says that it can't communicate with it. The HP web site talks about a generic driver in Windows 7 that will work but gives no information on the name of the driver or where in Windows to find it.
The printer is parallel only and the Windows 7 computers don't have parallel ports, so I can't hook the printer directly up to the Windows 7 computers. I can't see spending $50 on a parallel/USB cord just for downloading a driver either.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Unplug the printer and plug into the Windows 7 machine and install the drivers from windows update - put it back on the xp machine if thats the the arrangement or leave it on Windows 7. You should be ok either way if you know how to setup the rest - post back if you cant configure it to work.
If you do this it will install it automatically -
On the taskbar, click start
In the Search Programs and Files box , type change device installation .
Click Change device installation settings . The Device Installation Settings window opens.
If it is not already selected, select Yes, do this automatically (recommended) , and then click Save Changes
