|If you already have attempted to install the software then remove ALL of it and reboot. Then start installing the software. Install the WinXP drivers if you are prompted. |
At some point, you will be prompted to make a USB connection. Do so, and then follow any additional prompts.
If the CD will not allow you to install then go to the link below. Pick the exact printer model you have and then choose WinXP as the OS. Choose the basic print and scan version. Install that packet and then connect the printer using the USB cable. If the printer is not found automatically then install manually. You should be able to get it working.
Once you have the printer working you MIGHT wish to try installing the productivity software from the same link below.
If Win2000 still balks you may need to update the installer version. Look at the technet site linked below for those downloads.
