I have an old dusty e210. Recently I have installed Win 7 RC x64 it looked cool, it was faster, games went well everything was ok. I had to print st. yesterday. Downloaded the driver, connected the printer, and the installer said NOT compatible driver with x64 systems. I stuck at that point Could somebody help me out ?
Lexmark never updated the E210 driver for Windows Vista / Windows 7. Luckily, the printer is identical to the Samsung ML-1210 printer, which has better drivers that are Vista / Win 7 compatible. (The new drivers also work if the printer is connected to an XP machine, but is being shared with a Vista machine on your network.)
Go to the Samsung Support website (www.samsung.com/us/support/) and then type ML-1210 in the search box in the middle of the page. Click on the ML-1210 result, then click the "Downloads" tab, then below that, click "Drivers." Scroll down to get the correct driver for your system.
Uninstall any old drivers before installing the new drivers.
John Dollison, you are a legend. Thought i was going to have to throw out my trusty (and brilliant) Lexmark E210, but after installing the Samsung driver and pointing it at the USB port, it fired up good as gold. Many Thanks, a virtual beer on its way!

Firstly I don't speak nor write in Portuguese but I understood it so my answer is going to be in English, apologizes for that. OK now Lexmark web site says that there are no Windows 7
drivers for that printer (seems to be an old printer). So lets install
the Windows XP driver in comparability mode. But first try unplugging the printer (is it USB?) wait a few seconds and plug
it back in to see if Windows 7 can install the drivers by itself (remember to have the windows up to date and all the windows updates options turned ON). Then if that doesn't work for you, try the compatibility mode trick.
1. Download the XP drivers ( http://download.cnet.com/Lexmark-E210/3000-2116_4-146099.html )
2. Place the driver installation file on the Desktop.
3. Right Click the driver installation file and select Properties/Compatibility Tab. Select the appropriate options in from the list (in your case choose windows 7 64 bits).
4. Click Apply/OK.
5. Right Click the file and select the Run As Administrator option to install.
That should work if the first option I gave you don't do the trick.
I had the same problem two years ago and purchased the adaptor also .The port is correct. My adaptor never would work either. The correct answer,for me, was to purchase a Parallel port PCI card and install it. I am still using it to this day as both the paper and the ink ribbon on my pin printer is a lot less expensive for making copies that I don't need to be letter perfect.
