Cut or copy the driver zip file and go up a few levels and paste it on the desktop or in a folder on the desktop or in a folder in my docs and unzip ALL the files to this new folder and run setup. I had same problem. For some reason if you save the file 3-4 or more folder inside a folder inside a folder ect (you know...try to be organized?) it won't run. Whats more if you were to just move the SETUP.exe file and not the other folders (such as DATA) the install would start asking you for files that ARE in the data folder, asking you to point to them. If you did it would act like it couldn't see them...Why? I have no idea....all I know is once i moved EVERYTHING (all the files from the zip)up to the Desktop or a level below it like My docs, C drive etc it ran immediately and saw all files. You can run that SETUP and/or use add printer from control panel > printers and faxes

Hi i buy a ceble that parallel to usb but my pc unkhnun my printer ... can you help me?

You need the POSJet driver from this site: . Extract the files from the zipped folder (right click and choose Extract All) and then go to Devices and Printers (Start > Devices and Printers). Use the Add a Printer Wizard to install the printer and it's drivers (so remember where the folder location for the extracted files). The first zipped file is the basic driver and at the bottom of the page is OPOS driver. Note some of the drivers are not available for Win7 64-bit OS versions.

If you need those drivers and have the 64-bit OS, you need to use a work-around. The option that will work is to use a computer (virtual, dual-boot, or true second machine) with an older version of Windows installed. If you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can create a virtual XP computer for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft. Install them in order. Then install the XP software from the above site in the virtual computer and it will work. (Other virtual computer programs are Parallels and VMWare.) All of the other options will require a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Please note that the virtual computer can't share files directly with the main computer. You'll need to save files to external or removable media (optical media or flash drive, for example) to share them.

I hope this helps.

How to get your Dell 964 AIO printer to work correctly in Windows 7

Read through all the steps and get a good understanding of process before starting.

Step 1:
Perform manual Un-installation of OLD printer drivers Click Start > Devices And Printers, right-click on the Dell AIO 964 printer icon, and click on Remove This Device.

Step 2: Unplug the USB cable from the computer.

Step 3: Download the ZIP file R166225.ZIP from the Dell website here:

Step 4:
Extract all the files from R166225.ZIP intoa separate folder by themselves. Remember the location of the folder for later use. It would be best to create a new folder and extract the files to that folder to make it easier.

Step 5: Navigate to the directory you extracted the files to, locate SETUP.EXE, and run it. This will run the Dell Clean-Up Utility, which removes old printer drivers/files from your system.You may need to navigate to a sub-folder named "CleanUp_Utility" under the folder that you just created in order to run SETUP.EXE.

Step 6: Reboot the computer when prompted.

Step 7: Download the self-extracting file R146813.EXE here:

Step 8:
Navigate to the file R146813.EXE, right-click the file name, click Properties, click the Compatibility Tab, and check off the following check boxes: Runthis program in compatibility mode for: (then select Windows VistaService Pack 2), and Run this program as an administrator.

Step 9:
Right-click SETUP.EXE, click Run as Administrator, and run SETUP.EXE.You might be able to get away with just running the executable withoutthis step, but I included it for redundancy and for safety's sake.

Step 10: Re-connect the USB cable to your computer when prompted by the Setup Utility. A small warning: when I did this step, Windows detected my printer and installed its own native drivers forthe printer, and a dialog box popped up attempting to print analignment page. I ignored this dialog box entirely. If this happens,you will be prompted by the Setup Utility to update the driver, which is what you want to do. Continue to run the Setup Utility as normal.

Step 11: Reboot the computer again.

Step 12:
After starting up Windows 7 and logging in, Click Start > Devices and Printers, double-click the printer icon. Click Customize your Printer, then the Ports Tab. Check off "Enable bidirectional support."

Step 13:
Verify that the printer is communicating with the operating system by printing a test page. You can go back to Customize your Printer and click Print Test Page.

Step 14:
If it still doesn't work try and reboot and try printing test page again.

Thank you and enjoy the tip.

New computer lost disc to download printer can you

You can download the drivers from the internet and install them. Extract the files from the zip file and run Setup. This would be like installing from a CD.

Click here to open the driver webpage. Select the driver file according to your OS.

If you have OS newer than XP then there is no driver available. You can try the XP driver in this case also.

Why would you need WinZIP? Zip handling is built into Windows XP. The driver from Brother is a Self-extracting archive, meaning you don't need third-party software to open it, just double-click it and select a destination for the file extraction. Then, when you open this particular extracted folder, you'll see many different folders named Disk1, Disk2, and so on. Open the folder Disk1, double-click the SETUP icon, and there you go - the driver installation starts.

The driver file you need is right here:

Just COPY & PASTE that address into your browser's address bar and Voila! click DOWNLOAD.

I need a driver for printer

Extract the zip file to a new folder on your desktop or somewhere else easy to find. Open the new folder, read any instructions (readme etc) If there is an application ie setup.exe then double click it. If there's no setup.exe then you need to find the properties of your printer in the hardware manager find the update driver option then select the location (the new folder) When you are happy the update has happened you can delete the new folder
