I dont know the exact tip for this one. but you can try the following steps to solve this problem.
Download the Windows Vista printer driver for the SCX-4216F multifunction printer from www.samsung.com.
Install the driver on your Windows Vista computer. During
installation, you’ll be prompted to connect the printer to your
computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without
connecting the printer.
After installation completes, open the Printers applet from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
Right-click on the new Samsung SCX-4100 Series printer and choose Properties.
Go to the Ports tab.
Click Add Port…, select Local Port, then click New Port…
For the port name, enter exactly the network path and share name of your printer (e.g. \\RECEPTION\Samsung SCX-4×16 Series).
Click OK, and double-check that this new port is selected with the checkbox next to it.
What a great idea Marc! It worked!
"Hi, I just resolved the same problem. I installed from the VISTA preinstalllation list of printers the driver and files for the HP 830C/832C printer. The "install a new printer" on the control panel-printers page shows it on the list. After installation I went to the 830C/832C printer properties and selected it to be located in the USB virtual printer port where my 825C was connected (select any USB it does not matter). Now the VISTA believes that you have a 830C/832C printer on the USB and prints perfectly with this setup on the 825C.
There are script corrections in Vista Ultimate that other versions of Vista don't have (yet). I have Vista Home Premium, and had to install my printer manually, since Vista incorrectly identified it when I first booted my new computer while hooked up to it. When I tried HP's website, to get the driver to install it, I found that it isn't available, because they simply advise me that in Vista, I don't have to install any drivers, since the drivers for my printer are built into the operating system. That's all well and good, but getting the driver to install automatically wasn't possible. I had to add a printer, and tell Vista that it wasn't connected to my computer so that I could fool it into letting me install the correct printer drivers. It now works, but it seems to me like Microsoft is still the least reliable operating system there is. I'll shut up now. =)
what you might want to do if you haven't already, is make sure your OS is up to par with updates.
Here is what I suggest that you do: 1. uninstall all the driver that you installed. 2. make sure your computer is updated 3. then plug your printer into the computer via USB or Parallel Port. 4. download driver for the printer and leave it on your desktop (or where you keep your application exe's). 5. Right Click My Computer > manage > device manager > select the printer > right click then update drivers > selected "No, not at this time" Next > Install from a specific location > then select the driver that you downloaded.
