a friend of mine came to me with the following problem...
any thoughts?Several months ago, we upgraded to Windows XP. We've had a Hewlett Packard 882C printer for probably 6 years. There is nothing wrong with it, and it suits our needs, so I'm not going to get rid of it anytime soon.
BEFORE we upgraded to Windows XP from Windows 98, I was able to do two-sided printing. Now that we've got XP, this feature is no longer available.
When visiting the HP web site, they are pretty much tossing the "too bad, so sad, buy a new printer" attitude around. They've got NOTHING.
Is there any way around this? Some method of "trickery" or some kind of secret driver out there somewhere that will enable me to, once again, print on TWO sides of the paper?
We're supposedly running Windows XP Pro, however, that option is NOT in there. I've been looking around on this computer, and on help sites for a few weeks. I've looked everywhere the sites have suggested. Nothing.
On this computer, once Print is chosen, I've got only 2 options. I can choose Portrait or Landscape, then the typical "print from page 1-..." or "print all". Then, I can choose whether or not to print in B&W, or color, draft, best, whatever.
