I am running into the a similar problem, where I have an XP machine that has
a Dell Photo 720 printer attached to it via USB. I have been able to print
to this shared printer on the XP machine from a new tablet running Vista for
quite awhile, and then it suddenly stopped printing (while I can still print
from the XP machine).
I have downloaded the Vista driver from Dell, and installed it but it still
will not work. It states that it cannot communicate with the printer, while
I can see this device (the attached printer, shared drives, etc.).
Any help that you can provide on this would be greatly appreciated.
