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.

Epson TM-T90 wont work with USB plug


I have the same problem...Epson does not work with a parallel to usb cable or adapter. If you still want to use this printer you will have to use the parallel port or change the interface on the printer to USB.

Trying to connect my toshiba laptop (Win 7 64 bit) to HP 4050tn printer with usb cable in laptop to parallel port on printer.


Well, that's not an easy combination... You have to find Windows 7 drivers for your USB to Parallel adapter cable - if it's some Chinese unknown brand product you might not be very successful.
If searching for drivers for your exact model fails, you can try to find out what chip is used inside the adapter and look for drivers for that particular chip. The chip symbol is sometimes mentioned on the box, and also you can try to read it from any other drivers you may have available for your adapter (look into the .ini or .inf files, opening them with Notepad).

HP laserjet 4L parallel to usb vista Jumbled font on test page


You mentioned parallel usb. The HP4L only has parallel. Make sure you specify LPT1 as the port you want. Try reinstalling the driver. It should be in the list of drivers.

USB CABLE


the printer is designed to work with a parallel cabel connection. usb to parallel conversion cables may or may not work. 
now for the second part is, about the driver (visit manufacturers website for updated drivers), usb driver behaves differently compared to parallel drivers as it expects a usb printer connected to a computer. try both drivers. remember, it may or may not work.

Vista 64 bit OS says I must get a driver with a digital signature to install USB to DB25 parallel cable. The driver on the disc which came with the cable was not accepted by Vista.


1. Get a new signed driver from the adapter manufacturer.
2. Try the workarounds listed here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/08/15/workaround-for-vista-cannot-load-low-level-driver-signing-issue/

For what it is worth, I generally found USB to parallel adapters worthless as most printers will not work with the adapter. Usually easier to get a new printer. If a desktop, get a parallel port expansion card.

Help hook up Panasonic KX- P1150 parallel printer to USB with win Xp pro 64


Ah, 64 bit computing I feel your pain. One of my uses insisted on buying one and then found out 80% of their unique programs won?t work on it. We eventually wound up formatting the hard drive and installing conventional Windows on it. I researched several manufacturers of ?parallel to USB adaptors? and none of them claimed 64 bit compatibility. I did, however, find out that there are compatibility issues and some printers won?t work correctly. An alternative if you have a free PCI port on your PC would be to try using this card from cables unlimited: http://www.cablesunlimited.com/products/Prod_Individual3.aspx?groupcode=I3303. A bit too pricy ($89) but they actually advertise 64 bit compatibility with real drivers to match. Good luck and let us know if you have any other questions.
