i've just got a new printer to print out all my arty farty pictures and creations since getting a new digital camera. my query is, can i run both printers on the one PC ? as at the mo I swap the printer cable from one machine to the other depending on what i am printing.
thanks in advance for your help. please keep it simple, I am a techno-Noddy !

It all depends on what the connection from the printers R. If U have can connect one printer to the USB port then yes, U can use both printers. If U haven't got a USB cabble for the printer, U can buy them.

I have an A3 Xerox printer on my parallel port, an Epson C80 on a on USB port, a Samsung laser ML1210 on another USB port. Sometimes there is an Epson 760 connected as well. This is in addition to virtual printers- FAX and PDF.

So the answer is depends if you're on USB and how many USB ports you have.
