Samung SCX-4521F Compatibility with Windows Vista

Hi there, this printer has a compatibility challange with Windows Vista OS. Scan function is not possible & printing is possible only off-line. Even downloading Vista drivers from Samsung website hasnt helped. Very strange & frustating. Whats the way out?

    Yep, the same issue here. Hit and miss, but more miss regarding getting it to print. Managed to get a couple of pages out, but now nothing. Vista does not recognise the drivers whatsover except that it is listed in printers after installing downloaded drivers. Error comes up everytime it is spooled as a job, test prints don't work, Vista driver supplied with printer on CD does doesn't contain a driver according to Vista. I've had enough!!

Sorry but no way out here. Lexmark and Samsung did not updated correctly there drivers, evan a lazy all-in-one inkjet printer will print but not scann or copy, it's a huge problem and they promise for 6 months now that it will be solved, but nothing until today.

The device has only a USB connectivity. It cannot be connected to router. You can however connect thru a wireless print server (check the compatibility of the print server with your printer before you buy one).

Problem scanning with samsung scx 4521f


Hi,

Sorry to have missed your initial posting...

In any case, to my understanding, this particular printer is likewise capable of USB connection. Perhaps you can try connecting it pure USB and go through the installation again. this might simplify interface and communications between notebook and scanner/printer.

If for some reason you would want to retain Printer/Parallel to Notebook/USB, you need to check your Imaging Devices in the notebook's Device Manager and verify that all drivers are installed for the Samsung SCX-4521F. There should be no yellow or red marks. If there are or if the Samsung SCX-4521F instance is not present, you may need to reinstall using the Add Hardware Option in the Control Panel. You may need to manually select the imaging device/scanner. This holds true if you are using Windows XP.

If you are using Vista, you may need to download all the Vista drivers from the Samsung website. Further, pls be informed that to my knowledge, Vista has certain issues with USB ports. Microsoft has issued a patch/update specifically for this concern. It may be downloaded from here or here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
