Hooking up a Lexmark OPTRA E Printer to a Vista - USB Port

I am trying to get my older Lexmark Optra E + laser printer hooked up to my new Vista Desk Top , which only has USB ports.
I have purchased the 25 Pin to USB 2.0 cable. I have plugged it in and downloaded the OPTRA E+ driver.
I have tried many of the different ports that are shown available, to no avail. I cannot get a test page to print .
The printer doesn't seem to be recognized .
Any help would be much appreciated as the Optra E is a great home laser printer.

I do not believe that the Optra E is supported by Lexmark on Vista.

Not all products from the Optra family (if any) can meet the demands of that platform.

I had the same problem and it was driving me nuts. Turns out it was nothing more than the little flap that hangs down at the left hand corner of the output tray. It was stuck in the up position. After resetting it I had to cycle the power and everything is copacetic. Hope that helps

How to install a Lexmark Optra E310 printer without the software


This is an older printer. Lexmark support has driver files available for this model, but the most recent one appears to be for XP.

If your operating system is newer than XP, this printer may need to operate with the driver that you can auto-download from Windows Update.

Lexmark Optra E310 Downloads

On the tabs, click the one for your OS. Download the correct driver file for your system.

Lexmark Optra 1275sc - 900 Service - Software Error


I have the same problem, but the error only occurs when I try to print a .pdf file (Adobe Reader) using the "Lexmark Optra SC 1275 PS" driver. For some reason the PS driver didn't like .pdf files! My solution was to always print .pdf files using the alternative " Lexmark Optra SC 1275 (MS)" driver, which Lexmark also offers on its website.
