Question about Olympus P-440 Thermal Photo Printer
Missing or corrupt drivers usually cause this problem, and in most cases, you can rectify the problem, eventually getting Windows to recognize the device.
First, check the documentation that came with the device to find instructions for uninstalling the peripheral. This typically involves disconnecting the device from the computer and uninstalling drivers and other related software
Perhaps your printer is capable of fancy tricks, such as printing double-sided sheets or letting you know how much toner is left, but you're unable access those functions. That usually means that the special drivers that enable those features are not installed, and Windows is using a generic print engine instead. Using generic print drivers can also cause the printer to wait an extremely long time before printing each page because the manufacturer's driver helps the printer process data more efficiently. Contact or visit your printer manufacturer's Web site to get a driver designed to work with your OS.
