Eeeeek!! to the me it sounds like an irq or a sync issue! i had the same #@%&*! problem! i had to bust my brains to sort out the conflicts; i had to re route the hand spring to a different port, i also had to get a boatload of updated drivers!! i also put the printer to silpler features. good luck, joe
