Two printers one pc

  Smokeyone 06:28 08 Feb 2003

I plan on buying a second printer. After checking with the wrong newsgroup - is the best way to get an adapter to double up on the USB port. Also the printer I have in mind is the Canon S750 - any thoughts please.

if they are parallel or usb. I have 2 printers both have parallel connections only and I have gone back to the old printer sharing switch which works just fine. I do have an isa parallel port card but my present pc does not have any isa slots. If your 2 are usb then a usb hum would do the job for you.

usb hub not 'hum' too early in the morning for the fingers to be working correctly.

Currnetly have one parallel and one usb running no problems at all, same should apply to two usb.Canon ptinters are great, just bought canon s820 and couldn't be happier(PC WORLD £149 check it out) its the old model bt at that price who cares
