I guess that the HP deskjet 970cxi is non-resilient printer. :whistle:

The driver should be :

Congratulations you just gave me the driver I did not ask for. The one you gave me was for LPT1 port . I needed USB port. The problem was solved though by putting my 98 hard drives into a Pentium 3 i had which had the LPT1 port.

Well, that file contains a directory enu\9x\disk1\win98usb\ .

 

Not having a stupid HP deskjet 970 cxi it was a rather educated guess that it does contain the USB driver as well.

 

Possibly (I would dare to state "most probably") you were incapable of installing that driver properly (or you have a modified system and that driver is incompatible, HP drivers are reknown for being troublesome).

In any case I can see how vast is the gratitude that you express for the time I wasted trying to help you.

I am overwhelmed by it, and I won't feel like attempting to help you anymore (that amount was more than enough).

Maybe I wouldn't have been so rude with a reply if you weren't trying to be so rude to quote an inside joke from an other post. (In other words if you reply trying to get a reaction don't be shocked if you get treated the same way back) If you didn't start out by trying to get a reaction out of me I would of simply and nicely told you that wasn't it and we would both been on our way.

Good. :)
And maybe you missed the fact that the given driver does contain USB related drivers, of course it is very possible that the good guys at HP included them ONLY to confuse matters, but the actual .inf does contain:

%sDeskJet970C.DeviceDesc%=HP_USBPrint,USB\VID_03F0&PID_1004

 

so, allow me to believe that besides being unneededly rude (a joke is a joke), you are also unfairly accusing me of having provided you a "wrong" driver.

It may say that but it doesn't actually have the usb driver. When you run the installer and click usb it says that this isnt the driver and you should remove the disk and ect, ect. (trust me I have been searching for two days) There is a certain driver I'm looking for called the HP DeskJet 970 Series Printer Driver v2.3.2 FOR HOME USERS - USB Connection. (You can check their website) So you did get me the wrong driver but I really cant blame you though cause it is asinine to put usb drivers if you cant use them.

You are not really launching the .exe to installl the drivers, aren't you? :unsure:

 

The rules of thumb with any printer driver ever made by HP are (IMNSHO):

  1. never use the .exe
  2. extract from it the relevant drivers
  3. install normally through the .inf file

This will normally result in a working printer without unneeded bloat.

 

However you can find here:

http://www.treiberup...Connection.html

the German version of that driver and here the "normal" version of the same:

http://www.treiberup...kjet970Cxi.html

 

by cleverly comparing the contents of the two between them and the differences against the English one already provided, you may be able to modify the English one in such a way that the install "from .exe" works properly (and install besides the actual driver a whole lot of the usual HP bloat).

I put my laziness aside and did it the inf way.( to only find out it brought me right back to the .exe :realmad:  but this time it worked). Though honestly I still cant figure out why I didnt do it that way the first time. :blushing:

(Also do you know where I can get Ink)

So, after all, the driver wasn't the "wrong" one. :whistle:
