I have an HL2220, bought as a backup a couple of years ago

Customer Question

I have an HL2220, bought as a backup a couple of years ago but just opened. I have the install disk, but the computer I need to connect doesn't have a disc drive. Computer runs Windows XP Pro, SP2.
JA: What's the make/model number of your printer? How old is it?
Customer: HL2220, bought a couple of years ago.
JA: What kind of computer are you printing from (Mac or PC)? What Operating System (OS) are you running?
Customer: Pearl--forgive me but did you read my first message? HP Notepad running Windows XP Pro, SP2
JA: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?
Customer: It has been an issue since I opened the box and found an installation disc and noticed that my computer doesn't have a disc drive. When I tried to download driver from your website, I kept getting "Download failed" or "blocked" message. What I want to know is: can I transfer the CD data to a thumb drive and accomplish the install that way?
JA: Anything else you want the printer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No

Hi there, I am Cris and will be glad to assist you with your question.

Yes, you can transfer the content of the CD onto a flash drive. Then run the setup file to start the install of the printer on the PC.
