    I am having trouble printing from Picasa3 to both the HP 6700 & HP 8600 printers. It takes about 8-10 minutes per page. When I print on the HP2600 it prints in about 8-10 seconds. All other programs are printing OK. I have a desktop with Windows XP as the operating system. I am using the printers with a USB connection. Please advise me on this, HP has not solved the problem.

    The printers are attached to the desktop using a USB plug.

    You have 3 different printers plugged into one computer?
    Are some of these port on the front of the machine?

    Some of the older machines, when a front port is used, it by passes one of them on the rear of the machine.

    I just returned the 8600 printer to HP and now have the 6700 as a replacement. The 8600 was giving me the problem noted so HP advised going to the 6700. They are all-in-one printers. As a backup I have the 2600 single function printer which I seldom use and sometimes hook up to my laptop. Both printers are hooked up to USB ports to the computer.

    Are you saying that you unplug one then plug in another each time you want to use a different printer?

    Or are them both plugged in at the same time?

    Do you select the proper printer from the "Print" window that you wish to print to?

    You might also,Open the the Printer windows in the Control Panel and select each one of the ones listed and see what print jobs are listed.

    Both printers are plugged in using a splitter for the USB. The 6700 is my default printer and the one giving me the problem. The 2600 printer is for back up only. The 6700 printer with the problem was sent to me to try to eliminate the same problem I had with the 8600 printer. The 8600 is not hooked up & is waiting to be returned to HP.

    A lot of printer will not work when using a splitter.

    Have you tried them one at a time, NOT using the splitter, but a port on the computer?

    Yes, I have been using a splitter for many years without any problems. HP has assigned a special case manager to help solve my problem. They say it is their printer. Thanks for your help.
