In the PS3 system software (3.40 and higher) is support built in for several USB printers.

4.41 vsh printer files: http://www.mirrorcreator.com/files/TKBBVBII/vsh-printer-441.rar_links


Main Printer functionality in VSH is handled by:

/dev_flash/vsh/module/print_plugin.sprx
/dev_flash/vsh/resource/print_plugin.rco

It allows two execution modes which will result in each different Interface Usage.

Adding a Printer will create a file containing peculiar Printer information:

/dev_hdd0/etc/print/prtinfo.dat


Supported printers

Canon

driver and configuration is handled by /dev_flash/vsh/module/print_canon_library.sprx

Epson

driver is handled by /dev_flash/vsh/module/print_epson_library.sprx, configuration by /dev_flash/vsh/etc/print/epson,pmd

HP

driver and configuration is handled by /dev_flash/vsh/module/print_dlna_library.sprx (as result, HP printers will not print from the PS3 if they are connected via a USB cable. They will only be recognized if the compatible HP printer is connected on the same network as the PS3)
