    I am trying to copy my printer HP officejet 7130xi all-in-one.
    so that I have two or three of the same printer. it is connected
    using USB. It used to be easy in windows 98 etc. but xp doesn't seem
    to want to let me do it. Why do I want to do this so that I can have
    one set up it supper high quality and one set up in black and white
    draft that way you just select the approriate printer and print
    without having to change settings

    thanks for you help.

    Add printer and specify LPT1. Rename and change the port to match the
    first instance of the printer. Set up as desired.

    You must be doing something wrong. How are you trying to add it.
