Better if you check with the manufacturer if your thermal printer's parallel interface is replaceable by a usb interface. try installing the usb driver for your product (drivers available at the manufacturers website)

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.

HOW TO CONNECT IT TO MY LAPTOP IF I LOST BOTH MANUAL AND CD?


Hello Benedict!

First go to Lexmark.com... Download the necessary software / drivers. Install the drivers first and then turn on the printer and connect the usb cable to the laptop and the printer will be installed. Here is a link to Lexmark.
Make Your Selection
If no software is available, it means the drivers are already included in your OS. Just plug the printer in the usb port & Windows will install it.
Good Luck, JP

You need to connect either via USB cable or serial cable. If you dont have a serial port on your laptop you should need a USB to serial converter. Than you just have to install the drivers for the printer if it is not plug and play. You can search for them on Google. Ask me if you need more details.

Hello i want to use a argox ribbon printer os 214 plus with my mac book pro and osx lion is this possible ? so yes i like to know how Ron


To be able to do that you need to use a cups driver.
Try www.cups.org
try a driver for datamax or for Zebra if you have the pplz option
Else you'll have to write one.

Argox 214 not compatible with vista


Thermal printers seem to be notorious for that.

Try using Vista's "Generic/Text" printer driver (you'll need to go into device manager, select to update the drivers, go to Have Disk, select "generic" as the brand). That will send raw text to the printer. Many thermal printers support this.

After you do that, you will also need to go into your printer settings and setup a custom page size that matches the size of your labels. Then you should be good to go.

Error 0x0000002when trying to install hp photosmartC5100[printer C5180] all in one printer to a toshiba laptop with vista


Seems like its a common problem.
Are you using a usb cable direct connection or a serial to usb

based in microsoft's forum
http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=2298899&SiteID=17

Try this:

1. Make sure the only printer connected is your hp printer that you are having problems

2. From your control panel go to system then go to device manager

3. Under universal serial bus controllers, look for usb printer or any usb printing device you see there and uninstall it.

4. Disconnect your usb cable from the printer and your computer

5. Uninstall the driver from the add/remove programs or hp's driver software uninstaller

6. Restart your computer

7. Download the latest driver from hp's website or use the cd installer

8. Plug in the usb cable from both ends and restart again the computer
