Alps md5000 printer driver for pc with windows 7


Sorry, there are no Windows 7 Drivers. There are a couple of work arounds. I use an older laptop with Windows XP. The XP drivers are easy to find on line. There is another way, but I have not tried it. It's using XP compatibility mode in Win 7.

1. delete any MD5000 printer entries. *(I had no other printer entries defined)*
2. Use ADD/REMOVE programs to remove the driver.
3. Disconnect printer USB cable (one you bought on EBAY) My laptop has no Parallel port.
4. Reinstall Driver (I am using 2.2.4) specifying not to make it the default printer. For me the 2.2.4 install worked fine.
5. use the add a printer function to manually add the MD5000P. I pointed the install wizard to the 2.2.4 file created by the installation of the driver when it asked if I had a disk. for my computer that was:
C:\Documents and Settings\AMD64\My Documents\My Received Files\MDP224XP
5. after the printer definition was successful , I followed the steps from a
previous message in the ALPS group listed below listed below:

RIGHT CLICK MD5000P ICON, and open properties menu for said printer (this is the one you created manually)

click PORT TAB:

pick a USB port ( virtual printer port) from list *(the install set it to a
port of MD_LPT1 I selected USB001)*

DISABLE bi-directional support RADIO BUTTON,

click ADVANCED TAB:

click PRINT DIRECTLY TO PRINTER radio button,

OPEN PRINT PROCESSOR BUTTON on bottom of page,
from menu select ALMD224S (for print processor)
and DATA TYPE select RAW(FF AUTO).

I plugged the printer in a USB slot and printed test page and a color
photograph.

After this all worked I reset the USB port definition to reselect the bi-directional function. So I do run with the bi-directional mode

Note that Win XP itself will auto create a printer definition using a Microsoft driver "Alps MD-5000P (MS)" if you use this printer to print you will not get any of the ALPS functions.

But this seems to have worked for me.

I hope this helps you. I have only worked with an Alps MD5000 so I have not done this with any other model but the steps I think the steps could still apply because of windows requirements. I have not tried to install the driver on Vista so I do not know if it will work but it might.

Hope this helps.

If any of this is a problem you can contact me and hopefully we can work it out on the phone or chat or whatever

Good Luck

Alps md5000 printer fails to print The machine is setup correctly, when it tries to print the error light comes on and the printer stops


Hello

Did you check the thermal head if its getting hot or not? Another thing is the opto sensor for detecting the presence of media try to clean it first with a brush and then try to print.

I have an alps MD400 and am running xp pro with drivers for xp and can't get the thing to print and need a trouble shooter


There are WinXP drivers for the MD-4000. You can find them in the files section in the Yahoo ALPS Group. There are some conflicts with the Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and the ALPS printers. It is best to connect to a computer running SP2 and has a parallel port. The ALPS group also has the Twain for the Scanner. The MD-4000 does require a carrier to scan things.

MD5000 to MACBOOK PRO problem


MAC is NOT my forte... however, I do know that ALPS offered THIS a few years after the MD5000 came out:

USB Interface Kit for the iMac OS V8.01 and Windows ($99)

You might find it on ebay etc. and be able to use it (no support with this printer on OS X!).
