HP USB device compatibility

Reports indicate that each of the following HP devices may employ a non-standard USB printing interface. In all cases the HPIJS driver should produce device-compatible printer code, but the standard Mac OS X USB "backend" may fail to successfully transfer the data to device. Please be aware that your device MAY function normally, even if it appears in this list!

If your device fails to print and you are reasonably sure that you set it up correctly then you may be experienceing this problem. As a workaround you may be able to print to your device by using an alternate connection interface (but this method is not well tested). For devices with a parallel port you can try a compatible USB-to-parallel cable, or a parallel-port print server. Devices that lack a parallel port may possibly function with a compatible USB print server.

The following devices have no parallel port but may operate using a JetDirect 175X, 310X, or 380X USB print server
