Cannot Print Correctly on Sato CL 408e Printer

Hello, I have a Sato CL 408e Printer running on (Windows XP , SP3) connected via a Parallel Port with the latest driver installed. I need to print in Landscape Format but it changes to Portrait Format and even with Manual Changes it does not print the way I want it to Print.  Some help will be much appreciated as how I can fix this problem. 
Regards, Karan

In the past I have got that problem several times. The truth, it will always be better to use technology from this century. ;)
The problem with adapters is that they are usually chinese and those drivers are horrible. I usually solve it by buying the most expensive adaptor on the store, which usually includes a Driver CD. The OS could be helping to make it even more difficult. If you have a Windows Vista, you will not have an easy time printing.

That is the correct driver.

Make sure you have a good cable (with bidirectional support). Check that the ECP mode is enabled for the parallel port in the Device Manager. Click Start > Properties (Control Panel). Click on the Hardware and then the Device Manager. Open the Ports section and look for the parallel port option (LPT1). Double click on this and look at the Resources tab. If the printer is connected in ECP mode, you will see two entries for the I/O ranges. This may need to be enabled in the BIOS (often reached by hitting F1 or F2 when restarting the computer before the OS loads). If you adjust the BIOS setting for the port, you will need to return to the Device Manager and adjust the Port Settings to Enable Legacy Plug and Play.

If you use a USB to parallel adapter, make sure you got one that supports bi-directional communication.

I hope this helps.

You don't write how exactly is your printer connected - if I remember correctly, HP LJ 4P doesn't have a USB connector, and Vostro doesn't have the parallel port available.
So how did you connect it? Is it via some USB to parallel adaptor, or via JetDirect network card in the printer? There are multiple separate issues that may be applicable in either case...

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.

Sato 408E problem

Using direct thermal labels it can dirt the printhead and platen roller, you must clean them with isopropyl alcohol and a flannel. Also adjust the darkness to less value to best print.
