Make sure you are using a Parallel cable, some apps will not print from a DOS box from windows if using a USB cable.

In laser jet,if your connectivity is parallel cable, from your computer to your printer then follow this instructions to print.

  1. From a command prompt or in an MS-DOS window, type the following:
    Mode lpt1:,,p
    NOTE: If the product is attached to a parallel port other than LPT1, then substitute the correct LPT port number in the mode command.
  2. Press Enter on the keyboard. The response received should be similar to these examples:
    > LPT1 Not Rerouted
    > Resident portion of MODE loaded
    > Infinite retry on parallel printer time-out

  3. At a command prompt, type copy /b <FILENAME> <PORTNAME>, where <FILENAME> is the name of the print-ready file (including the path) and <PORTNAME> is the name of the appropriate printer port (such as LPT1). For example, at the c:\> command prompt, type the following:
    copy /b c:\5200FW.PDF lpt1
    NOTE: If the file name or path includes a space, enclose the file name or path in quotation marks. For example, type C:\>copy /b "c:\My Documents\5200FW.PDF"
  4. Press Enter on the keyboard. The message PROCESSING JOB appears on the control panel, and the job prints.
  5. At the command prompt, type exit to close the command window.

My acer aspire one netbook will start up but freeze at the welcome screen. I think it has something to do with the last program I installed but I can't get init to unistall. So I'm not sure what to do.

Just before the welcome screen shows press F8, this will give you a DOS menu.
Choose Safe Mode with DOS support and when it has loaded go to Control Panel, find Programmes and Features. Select from the next menu, the programme that you have doubts about and click on Uninstall.
That then will remove the programme.
Close the notebook down.
Re boot and that will elliminate the installed programme.
If it still gives trouble, press F8 again and choose Repair.
Follow the prompts.
Hope that helps.

How to redirect lpt print to canon lbp-3000 printer

Here's what you need to do. ON the computer that you want to associate that LPT1 port, you need to know the name of the computer, and the share name of the printer. In this case, I am assuming you have the Canon LBP-3000 physically connected to this system running the FoxPro program.

Step one: Find the computer name. Click on START SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click SYSTEM. Click on the tab COMPUTER NAME and under FULL COMPUTER NAME, write down the name. Click OK to exit the window.
Step two: Click on START, SETTINGS CONTROL PANEL. Double click PRINTERS AND FAXES. Right click on the Canon LBP-3000 printer and click on SHARE. In the window that opens, click on SHARE THIS PRINTER and take note of the name in SHARE NAME: and write it down. Click on OK to share the printer and exit out of the wizard.
Step three: Click on START, RUN. Type CMD in the box and click OK. in the black window, type NET USE LPT1 \\COMPUTER NAME\SHARE NAME

Follow with RETURN or ENTER and you should be good.

USB printing through DOS mode

Google for DOS PRINT USB, and you'll find some utilities that do this.

Or, you can include some commands in your batch file.

First, get the device name:

In a DOS window, type NET VIEW ComputerName (or use

Once you know the printer share name, you use it in a batch file.

NET USE lpt1: \\ComputerName\ShareName /Persistent:Y

This captures the print queue to the shared printer.

You must also go into Printer Properties/Advanced/Print Processor and set it to TEXT

Your copy, print and other commands will work.

Can I print in Dos Programme with USB Printer

Assuming the printer can understand DOS coded printouts (which most should be able to), you can do it like this: Go to Control Panel | Printers | ML 2010 and share the printer. Then go to a command prompt Start | Run | type cmd Assuming that you share it with the share name "MYPRINTER" and the computer is called "MYCOMPUTER", then type NET USE LPT2: \\MYCOMPUTER\MYPRINTER /PERSISTENT:YES at a command prompt. Now you can print to LPT2: and the output will go to the USB-connected printer. To find your computer name, right click on the My Computer icon (either on your desktop or the start menu) and choose properties. The window that opens will have a Computer Name tab.
