USB Printer does not recognize with XP Computer

In most cases, the driver for a printer is supplied when you purchase it. It is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide the driver along with the device to make sure the working.

However, most of the Operating Systems come with native driver support for many known printers. This is the fact we have to take care while purchasing a printer. Even though we misplaced the driver disc, if we purchase a good manufacturer printer, there is a chance to get the native support from Operating System itself.

There are some scenarios where printer may not be recognized by the Operating System due to some conflict with other devices.

Please follow the troubleshooting steps and check the operation:
  • Ensure that the supplied USB cable is firmly connected to both the printer and computer side.

  • Ensure that the USB driver for the printer has been properly installed. Please follow the steps to ensure that:
  1. Turn ON the computer and then printer.
  2. The Add New Hardware Wizard window will appear on the Computer screen.
  3. Click the Next button
  4. Insert the installation CD in to the CD/DVD drive on the Computer.
  5. In the Add New Hardware Wizard window, click to select the CD-ROM drive.
  6. Click the Next button.
  7. In the Finish Setup dialog box, click the Finish button.
  • If the USB driver for the Printer has already been installed, uninstall and then reinstall the driver.
Follow this procedure to reinstall the device driver using the Device Manager utility.

IMPORTANT: This procedure must be performed while logged in as Administrator or to an account with Administrator rights.
  1. Click the Start button, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, under Pick a category , double-click the Performance and Maintenance icon.
  3. In the Performance and Maintenance window, under or pick a Control Panel icon, double-click the System icon.
  4. In the System Properties window, click the Hardware tab.
  5. On the Hardware tab, in the Device Manager box, click the Device Manager button.
  6. In the Device Manager window, double-click the category icon of the device to be removed.
  7. Under the Device Manager category, click to select the device to be removed.
  8. On the menu bar, click Action.
  9. On the Action menu, click Uninstall .
  10. In the Confirm Device Removal window, click the OK button.
  11. Restart the computer.
NOTE: For some devices the operating system will display a System Settings Change window. Click the Yes button to restart the computer. When the computer restarts, the operating system will find the device and install the driver. If the operating system is unable to automatically find the driver, have the installation wizard search the C:WINDOWSI386 folder.
  • Remove and reconnect the printer.

Printer port configuration and Zebra trouble

When you connect a printer to your pc the operating system adds a virtual port. Your pc will typically have 3 physical usb ports but can have as many virtual ports as you have devices to connect to it.

1: Ensure that your printer has media loaded and is powered up and ready to print. Connect the USB cable. You should get a message on pc screen saying device (printer) found.

Open printer driver ( double click on the zebra printer icon - Start/control panel/printers & Faxes/) Click print test page. If it doesnt print you will see a printer icon with a red question mark.on your toolbar, double click on this. This will bring up a small window showing status of the print job, Click printer/properties/ports. Select the next free usb port and click apply. Drag the print status window so that you can see the message in the status window change from Error print to error Restarting. repeat trying each of your usb ports until printer works. start with the higheat usb with highest number and work your way down.

I can not install driver Printer Canon LBP 2900 on Vista 64bist

it could be possible that you are running on a different platform, say Vista, and you are downloading on XP vice versa, ensure you have the correct version of the driver you wish to install, unless you correctly choose the right OS, you will never make this work. sometime it is confusing really...
hope this helps

HP Lazerjet IIIp driver for Windows XP

I just looked at windows xp and the drivers for HP Laserjet IIIP are included with windows xp.
Go to START, SETTINGS, PRINTERS and FAXES (if using the classic menu, I'm not using the XP menu system or go to the control panel, select classic icons and select Printers and Faxes either way will work. ) once inside the printer and faxes window, choose "Add Printer" Click NEXT, click Local Printer, click NEXT, click the port you will be using (With that old of a printer methinks it will be LPT1:) click NEXT, The driver selection screen will come up, Choose HP on the left hand side of that screen and HP LaserJet IIIP is on the bottom part of the list on the right hand side of the screen (They are not listed in number order like you might assume they are). Click HP LaserJet IIIP and click NEXT, It will ask for a printer name and you can keep the default name, Click either yes or no about the question "do you want to use this printer as the default printer?" and click NEXT, Click if you are going to share the printer and click NEXT, answer "Do you want to print a test page?" click NEXT and it should install the drivers for that printer and print a test page once installed. Then click FINISH on the last page and your printer should be installed.

Printing problem

Hi JuanU,

Which version of Windows are you running now? Vista?
If it is Vista, you will need to use the newer 'UltraDriver' for the Opera printer (V1.3.0.0 Issue 1).
This can be downloaded from Magicard's web site here;

NOTE!!! This driver will ONLY work with the following operating systems: Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003 and VISTA. If your PC has a different OS from those above DO NOT install this driver!

If you have an 'older' Opera printer which does not have an 'E' in the serial number, you will need to change the 'PRODUCT ID' from 2000 to 2800 before this driver will recognise the printer.

This is quite simple to do. Download and install the Magicard Support Utility Version 3.13 by clicking on this link;

Run the Utility, select 'USB' for the comms port.
When the other tabs open up, select 'Statistics / Commands'.
In the 'Quick Command' box type;


Then click 'Send'.

Exit the Magicard Support Utility, and unplug the printer's power cable.
Now, install the UltraDriver version Issue 1.
When the driver install has finished, plug the power cable into the printer. The hardware wizard will finish the installation and you will then see the 'Magicard Opera' printer icon in your printers folder.
It should then work fine.

Let me know if you have any problems.

There are no drivers for fixya but I have found a workaround by some anonymous poster

Xp software&drivers will work in Vista after a little tweaking in printer properties.

1)Install the CD-Rom HP Software/Drivers that came with your Printer at the time you purchased it. These Xp software&drivers are Vista Compatible after tweaking the Printer Properties. Reboot after installing.

2)Goto Start/Printers. Right click HPLaserJet1020 then Left click Properties. An HPLaserJet Properties window should have popped up.

3)Click the Advanced Tab. Click the Print Processor button located at bottom of window.

4)Select print processor as>>>IMFPrint. Then Select Default Data Type as>>>RAW. Click OK.

5)Now return to the Main HPLaserJet Properties window and click the General Tab. On the Bottom of that window; Click the Print Test Page Button. Finished! A test page should be printing out if you adjusted the printer properties correctly. Enjoy!

optionally you may have to disable print spooling

Quote "This did not work for me until I changed the option in that same window (advanced settings) to "print directly to the printer". Spooling does not work. "
