Assuming the printer can understand DOS coded printouts (which most should be able to), you can do it like this: Go to Control Panel | Printers | ML 2010 and share the printer. Then go to a command prompt Start | Run | type cmd Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type NET USE LPT2: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES at a command prompt. Now you can print to LPT2: and the output will go to the USB-connected printer. To find your computer name, right click on the My Computer icon (either on your desktop or the start menu) and choose properties. The window that opens will have a Computer Name tab.

It can't.
DOS printing need LPTx parallel port because DOS don't understand/support USB.

YOU can share the printer with windows printer driver, then
go to CMD prompt
Net use lpt1 \\<computername>\<printersharename>
Then print DOS job to LPT1

The problem is, the DOS program tries to print to LPT1, which is your parallel port. We need to redirect this to your USB Port. First, you have to set up printer sharing: Go to Control Panel | Printers | Your printer and share the printer. Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type go to Start | Run and type in: NET USE LPT1: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES That should do the trick, unless there's a driver problem, which is unlikely for a dot matrix printer. If that doesn't work, let me know and I can troubleshoot further.

I want driver for windows 7

It seems that Toshiba's latest driver for this device supports only Windows XP and Vista 32-bit.

Here are the links:
1. Scan/Print Driver, Win 2000/XP v2.30
2. Scan/Print Driver for Vista 32 bit
3. Button Manager for Vista 32 bit

Manufacturers usually drop support for older devices after some time. Specially for printers and scanners the support is even more limited; most of them (if not all of them) offer warranty of one year.

Your best shot is to try the Vista drivers. For printing you shouldn't have problems. When you install the printer Windows have generic drivers for supported (current/older) devices. This driver should work for printing.

For scanning you can try something like VueScan which is compatible with Windows 7. Toshiba devices are not in their list of compatible scanners, but you can never know...
Note that VueScan only works with SCSI, USB and Firewire connections, most wireless Canon and HP scanners (on Windows and Mac OS X only) and doesn't work with parallel-port connections.

This can be solved with a parallel to USB cable converter (be sure to check whether you need male or female parallel to male or female USB converter).

I hope this answers your request.

Print to a USB port in DOS in Windows XP

This is an interesting question .... I never thought much about using a USB printer in DOS!

Well ...this is probably the easy fix :

Program called dos2usb which claims to do exactly what you want (15 day free trial download ....$19.99 to buy the program)

The harder fix that won't cost anything is to do some network jiggery pokery to redirect data sent to a parallel port to a usb port. Here's a link on how the folks at Dataflex did it :

How to redirect lpt print to canon lbp-3000 printer

Here's what you need to do. ON the computer that you want to associate that LPT1 port, you need to know the name of the computer, and the share name of the printer. In this case, I am assuming you have the Canon LBP-3000 physically connected to this system running the FoxPro program.

Step one: Find the computer name. Click on START SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click SYSTEM. Click on the tab COMPUTER NAME and under FULL COMPUTER NAME, write down the name. Click OK to exit the window.
Step two: Click on START, SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click PRINTERS AND FAXES. Right click on the Canon LBP-3000 printer and click on SHARE. In the window that opens, click on SHARE THIS PRINTER and take note of the name in SHARE NAME: and write it down. Click on OK to share the printer and exit out of the wizard.
Step three: Click on START, RUN. Type CMD in the box and click OK. in the black window, type NET USE LPT1 \\COMPUTER NAME\SHARE NAME

Follow with RETURN or ENTER and you should be good.

I have a Roland Camm-1 CX-24 cutting machine that has a parallel connection. I have recently bought a Dell Inspiron 1720 with a Windows Vista OS. I have a USB to Parallel cable to connect the two. I have...

connect the printer and the comp. and boot should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!

What does disabling bidirectional support mean

Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 st1\:*{behavior:url(#ieooui) } /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} USB to Parallel conversion requires translation by XP and Vista's 'hardware interleave' software as well as the USB device manufacturers driver. The software package just doesn't work well with older peripherals that use legacy parallel or serial com ports. Too many sloppy layers.

THE BEST WAY to add an LPT printer port to your laptop is to use a PCMCIA to Parallel adapter card.
The PC Card slot provides access to the laptop's data bus, and the PC Card adapter easily sets up as a native LPT port within almost any OS.

There is no delay, or connection problems as I've seen in so many complaints about USB to Parallel or Legacy Serial adapters. Printing is Instant.

PCMCIA is a mature standard, and works seamlessly with XP and Vista, and almost any other OS.

PARALLEL is the old standard fast data protocol. IEEE 1284 ECP mode up to 1.5 Mbps.
The BJC-80 and the BJC-85 have the same print speed. The BJC-85 just added USB.

INFRARED is ver 1.0 on the BJC-80, and printing is a bit slower at 115.2 kbps. Even the BJC-85 with its higher IRDA transfer rating and a laptop's built-in IR port, the XP print spooler has problems with it, and can hang if printing more than one page, and especially with more than one document. It will not scan.

I use IR for printing single pages only with either the BJC-80 or BJC-85.
USB to IRDA adapters work fine, and are less expensive $5-6 than
PCMCIA to Parallel adapters, $20-25.

I have tested and used several PCMCIA adapters from different manufacturers, and they all work perfectly as a hot-pluggable, instant LPT and/or Legacy Serial port for my laptops.
After installing the PC Card driver, check Device Manager for the LPT port number.
Install the printer manually from the list of printers, and select the proper LPT port.
Most laptops have two PCMCIA slots. If you change slots, the adapter card driver may reinstall, and assign the next available LPT port, LPT2.

To scan with the BJC-80, you must have an LPT port.
The PC Card adapter also allows the use of the IS-12 scanner cartridge within XP or Vista.
Within Vista, set the Canon ISScan software to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode, to allow use of the TWAIN driver.
