How to enable bidirectional support


E

Eric

I use Win XP Home on a HP Notebook. In the printers
properties the "enable bidirectional support" is not
available (the box is grey). It is the same for LTP or USB
ports.

What can I do ?

Thanks

If connected by USB, the bi-directional should be grayed out. If connected
by LPT, you need to ensure that the LPT setting is set to EPP in the BIOS.

Does the driver support bidirectional? If it does not, then the option is
not available

I had the exact same problem. Called support and spent an hour talking to someone in India, Got mad and hung up on him. Spent about 4 hrs trying different things. I updated all my drivers and problem went away. The crazy thing is apparently it was drivers for the LAN card. Worth a try...
Good luck and remember patience is a virtue !!!!
