    I've been experiencing a very annoying problem with an HP 6200 series.
    The printer is connected via a USB HUB to my VISTA PC. Regularly I hav
    to connect this printer direct to another PC, which cannot be networke
    with the VISTA PC. Now here's the weird part:
    Sometimes (most of the time) the printer will disappear from the Vist
    PC, but not always. When it does disappear, it re-installs when
    re-connect it to the USB HUB.

    Via the VISTA PC, this printer is also shared in my private network t
    an XP PC. The annoying part is that by disappearing from the VISTA PC
    also the shared printer disappears and I have to manually share th
    printer every time it re-installs.

    Question is quite simple, but I haven't been able to figure out
    solution: How can I prevent this printer from disappearing from Vist
    when I disconnect it from the USB HUB

  2. HP has an application that delete the printer when it's not attached. I
    forgot the application HP Que Discovery or something similar. Disable the
    service if you do not wish to have HP delete the device.
