    Ok so i reformatted my computer, told vista to share every file and all that crap so everthing is shared, but my moms laptop (2000) and my dads desktop (xp pro) will not find my printer (canon Mp830) on my machine (vista ultimate)

    My dads computer, will see all my drives but not the printer and my moms will also. i don't know what to do!!!

    Sounds like something out of an Apple commercial.:laugh:

    Maybe you could try sharing the printer on the XP, or 2000 machine? I really have no idea, I've never shared a printer. :confused:
