Make sure to download the printer's driver before connecting it to the computer. It can be found here Drivers Downloads. On this same page, under the misc section, be sure to download the Fargo Workbench application. It is essential to updating firmware and diagnosing future issues.

After driver has been downloaded and UnZip'd to a folder (I usually put it on the desktop for easy locating), Connect the print to your computer. the computer should prompt you with "new device" or something of that nature.

Go to Start (bottom left of your desktop) then to "Printers and Faxes" or "Printers and Devices" (depending on your version of windows). Check to see if Fargo DTC 550 is listed in your printer section.

Make sure to set the DTC 550 as your Default Printer, on this screen or through the ID badging program you are using.
