Thread: 6 Selphy on 1 laptop

    Default 6 Selphy on 1 laptop

    Anyone here tried hooking up 6 selphy (same model) on a single laptop before?
    Will the prog automatically send the print job to the idle printer or do we have to manual allocate the print job to the specific selphy?

    Thanks~

    When you send any print job, don't you have to select the printer?

    Windows needs a default printer and all jobs will be sent there. I think it needs a print spool application in between. AFAIK, Windows cannot do load balancing with printers.
    Also, do you hook them up via USB or network? USB could cause some workload to the laptop, not even talking about the load on USB due to print data.

    i doubt the laptop is able to connect 6 selphy through USB on to one laptop. its too much for them to take it..they might be able to read those 6 selphy through USB, but asking them to print them, is gonna overload it.

    You need a network printer to do the job.

    Get some selphy printer which can read CF/SD card.

    Some will print by computer some will print by CF/SD card.
