I had to completely reformat my :c drive, and now that I am reinstalling applications, I can't get XP to recognize the HP Photosmart 1218 printer.

All connections tight (sereis not USB). Have disconnected, then reconnected, multiple reboots, etc. Still nothing. Wife says to get a new printer. Can't be the solution.

For some reason XP is not recognizing that the printer is connected to the port.

when I download the driver/software from HP, it tells me that the computer will automatically recognize the printer connection and leaves me in 'no man's land'.

What am I missing here?
