Re: My printer driver doenot support Win98 or Win98se but...

The first thing to note is that not all Hardware is supported under all Operating Systems (sometimes referred to as Legacy support).

This means that, with new hardware, support for older systems like Win 98 (which is 6 computer generations old - think 17-18th Century for humans) is now often ignored. Most modern programs are similar in that they will not work in Win 95 or 98.

To see if there are Drivers out there for your Printers, you can try searching Google using the following string:

(Brand Name) (Model Number) +driver

Check to see if Win 98 is listed amongst the Drivers. Look at more than one site as not all drivers may be listed on the first site.

If you cannot find a driver for your Printer, you have only 2 choices (one in the case of Guest 15/4/2008) and that is to

a) find a printer that has Win 98 support (either new or secondhand) or

b) Upgrade the Operating system to Win XP (Win ME is to be avoided like the plague! It is a very poor and troublesome OS and Vista introduces a new level of meaning to the words LACK OF SUPPORT.

Note: If it does not worry you to use an ILLEGAL copy of Windows - ask anybody if they have a copy of Windows XP that you can borrow. I don't know what the statistics are, but a very high percentage of Win XP users are using Illegal copies, you will just end up being another one on the list.

Sorry that there is no easy answer for you.

Good luck searching for the Drivers.

I can't used the canon IP1980 in my Win98,

You're going to have to get hold of Canon to see if they still have them, I know Win 98 is basically phased out, as far as drivers are concerned. Best Buy might have an old Win 98 disk in their tech archives, I know they used to save a lot of them for support, so you might call them just for kicks. Call around to Used Computer stores, you might get lucky. Sorry, no easy fix for this problem.

I can't seem to get the drivers to load for HP 990cxi. I am using Me windows. Thanks

Remove printer from Computer.
Uninstall ALL HP printer software, and drivers.

Try re-installing from scratch.

(Worked for Win98 SE, WinME and WinXP)

(better yet, go back to Win98 SE, or WinXP :) )

Driver for Win 98SE

You should be able to use windows XP's home driver. Click on the link provided;
It's not listed on Brothers web site but you have nothing to loose.
Just hook up the printer to your system. There is a chance windows 98SE may have suitable driver within the operating system for the Brother HL-2140 Laser Printer.

Good luck!

The MP210 does not support Win98, and Win2000 driver doesn't work with Win98... so it's impossible to use this printer with an OS older than Win2000.

Connect printer

XP and Win2000 are the same NT platform and are different from Win98SE and if you have the correct drivers installed for each then a single USB cable is sufficient as long as the printer is pointed to that port/device.

Not supports bi-directional printing on win98 + winxp network

this is compatability problem. You should install your printer on Windows XP system. Then make it share for all. I think it will print from both 98 and XP. try this.......good luck.

X3470 Win98/ME drivers link please

Don't get cheated, drivers for Win ME or Win98 for this printer had never been done and do not exist.

When you pay the website you get drivers that only work on Win XP, Win 2000 (only title says 98/ME), and you cannot get money back.

If you really want to use this printer you need to upgrade at least to win 2000.

Here is download page for Win 2000.

Sharing srp350 network printer on win98 to winxp

You are correct with the conflict, although, it's a difference in drivers, i think what has happened is when you share a printer with xp, it installs the driver from the pc with the driver and printer attached, and as it is attached to a win98 pc, the full functions are probably unavailable,unlike an xp local driver.
