Hi, I have OS 10.3.9 on my machine, and when I print in classic mode I always get an error that it can't print. What happens is that Apple Talk shuts off by itself. I tried deleting the preference and doing all the updates in software update, but everytime I try to print it shuts off. I always have to go to chooser and activate it again. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thank You

You cannot have AppleTalk on in Classic Mode. The only way around it is to boot into OS9 if you can, and print that way, otherwise you are SOL.

Not true. I print from Classic over AppleTalk all the time. In fact, it is the only way I print from Classic.

You may try downloading the most recent Adobe print driver for MacOS 9. It worked for me even when the Apple driver gave trouble. You may also try to reinstall Classic.
