Question about Datamax I-4208 Thermal Label Printer
We use Bartender for our labels. Labels set up with default settings in Bartender 9.41 are offset down on the i-4208 ~ 1/8". On an i-4308 or datamax prodigy, the labels print as expected. We have 2 i-4208s. Same effect on both. Reset one to factory settings, still the same result. There is about 1/8" of missing margin at the top. Changing the label definition larger or smaller results in more unusable area on the bottom. Label size is determined by the gap sensor, as recommened by Seagull. Setting manual label size has the same result of missing space. Anyone run into this before? Any ideas?
On the I-4208s, press Menu button on front of printer. Go to Print Control. Go to Custom Adjustments. Go to Row Adjust. Change Row setting as needed. Ok to go negative.

I belive that, PC can detect the Printer and the only problem, the drivers are unabled to route the print queue and that creates a problem.
If your OS is XP/Vista/2000, try the below steps.
1.Right click on MY computer ->Properties->Hardware->Device manager.
2.You will get Device manager window popping out.
3.Scroll down to "Universal Serial BUS controllers".Click on the (+) sign.
4.Check for the "USB Composite Device" and right click on it, click Uninstall. ((IMPORTANT NOTE:WE HAVE TO UNINSTALL THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, TO KNOW WHETHER IS THE PRINTER'S USB COMPOSITE DEVICE, RIGHT CLICK ON USB COMPOSITE DEVICE AND PROPERTIES,look for what location says, Eg -LOCATION : Datamax M 4200)).
5.Disconnect the USB and reboot the PC.
6.Connect the USB after reboot, you will get popup "Found new hardware".Then the Drivers will be installed Automatically.

try using a seagull sceintific driver.
also if you are sending graphics (barcode) instead of an actual barcode decoded font, the printer will process as a graphic.
If serial, speed up to max, if parallel it should print quite fast
