    As you probably know, the iPad supports a special printing protocol called AirPrint and it can only print directly to WiFi printers that support that protocol. A list is given here.


    Apple - iPad - Print right from your iPad with AirPrint.

    It is possible to print to other printers - again only by WiFi - using a third-party app, such as Print Central or PrintNShare, but these do not support in-app printing. In other words, if you have a supported printer then you can print directly to that printer from within an app, such as Pages, Numbers or Keynote. If your printer is not AirPrint compatible you will need to use a third party app and the the files that you want to print will have to be opened from within that third party app for it to be able to print.

    There is no way to print from the iPad using either Bluetooth or USB.

    I have an AirPrint comparable printer but I cannot get my iPhone or iPad to recognise it! My windows laptop has no such problem! It's a HP photosmart B210! Any suggestions
