    Printer/iPad advice


    0 Not allowed!
    Good afternoon. I have two questions to put to the collective wisdom of NSC.

    First, can anybody recommend a reliable, cheap printer? Would like it to do all the normal stuff (including scanning and photocopying) without breaking down every ten minutes like my last printer. I would also like to be able to print from an iPad.

    Second, is there any way I can plug my iPod into the iPad? I'm sure there's a very simple answer here, but at the moment I can't work out how to do it. I'm not great with computers so any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers.
    This is the one thing we didn't want to happen.

      Why would you want to plug your iPod into your iPad? What are you actually trying to do?
      The above post is simply my opinion. I am not bullying you, should it differ from your own.

      iPad isn't mine. Owner uses it as her computer. Has an itunes account which she has on there, and would like to be able to get the podcasts/music etc onto an iPod (which she bought before the iPad) in order to listen on the move.

      You could probably bluetooth over any information from one to the other.

      Can't she subscribe to the same podcasts through the podcast app on her iPod? I can on my iPod touch.


      If you want to print from your iPad, you need to make sure the printer has AirPrint. Other printers might work with third party apps, but are not always reliable. My epson doesn't print from my iPad with either epson app.

      Thanks Acker; will look out for the AirPrint app. I'm not sure she can do that with this iPod; think it's a fairly old one. Thanks anyway.

      Airprint isn't an app, so much as a feature of ipads and later generation ipod touches and iphones that allows you to print without installing drivers. It is also a necessary feature on the printers themselves (if the printer doesn't have airprint you might be able to use a third party app instead). The article below contains a list of airprint printers.
