Dude, thanks for the guide, but that didn't help me. I don’t know what is the reason, but my damn printer gives an error on the screen, when I try to do this. Any tips? If I do not find a solution in the near future, I will buy another printer. My friends told me about one cool model on mrdepot.ca and said it was a very high-quality printer. So I need your advice! Have you ever used a printer from this site ??
