HI there,

Nexxtech products are manufactured by ORBYX Electronics and I've never encountered such a Byzantine Maze of misses trying to find these people for you, and could not. If there's a www address on your disc or a customer support # in any of your docs you can contact them and they'll email you a link to the driver.

In the meantime, 9.5 times out of 10, Vista Drivers will run on Windows 7 with 100% compatibility.

Regards,
Marcus

Panasonic IEEE 1284


Not sure what the question is. IEEE 1284 is a parallel cable interface, standard on most computers up until Windows XP for sure. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_1284. This interface was substantially replaced by USB. If you have an older printer with this interface you can still connect this to a newer computer without the parallel interface by installing an interface card (into a desktop computer) or connecting via a Parallel to USB adapter.

Epson lx-300 parallel to usb printing problem


Make sure driver for Parallel to USB adapter is installed properly, this doesn't guarantee that it will work. Suggestion is, check for interface availability for Epson printer if you can change parallel interface at the back of it to USB interface. Call Epson for details and availability.

I have an old serial printer that works fine, I can not connect it to my new computer via a parallel to usb cable convertor on windows 7!


Hi craig931, First try downloading the latest driver of your printer and your usb converter compatible for windows 7. Second Checked your device manager if your printer and usb to parallel driver properly installed, it should be there. If not yet installed try using different usb port one at a time until the cable have been detected. Third if you see already the printer port force to change it to USB001 or Com1, then try to print. regards,

I bought this not knowing it does not have a windows 7 driver. Is there any way to get one?


Windows 7 should include support for all hardware that was available when Windows 7 was "frozen" and "released to manufacturing" (i.e., millions of copies of the DVD were made from the "master").

So, a device as "simple" as floppy-drive with a USB-interface _should_ be supported by Windows 7.

Also, try http://WindowsUpdate.Microsoft.com
to see if Windows Update can offer a device-driver for download.

My Printer Bixolon SRP-270 USB/Parallel stop working after few minutes. We are using the USB port but the printer comes with a converter parallel usb


I'm sure it is the converter cable that is casuing this issue. Definitely try to change the interface on the printer to the native communication type. So if you have a parallel printer and you dont have a parallel port, you'll want to change the interface on the printer to usb. Bixolon printers have this ability. it'll cost around 30-40 bucks probaably with shipping

I bought some years ago a USB to Serial Port Cable Nexxtech. It work fine with Windows XP. But I buy a new computer and Windows7 can not read driver from the disc. What can I do?


You should look for new driver on the internet. driver for windows 7 or maybe vista, it might work. Windows XP needs different driver then windows 7.

Good luck

I want driver for windows 7


It seems that Toshiba's latest driver for this device supports only Windows XP and Vista 32-bit.

Here are the links:
1. Scan/Print Driver, Win 2000/XP v2.30
2. Scan/Print Driver for Vista 32 bit
3. Button Manager for Vista 32 bit

Manufacturers usually drop support for older devices after some time. Specially for printers and scanners the support is even more limited; most of them (if not all of them) offer warranty of one year.

Your best shot is to try the Vista drivers. For printing you shouldn't have problems. When you install the printer Windows have generic drivers for supported (current/older) devices. This driver should work for printing.

For scanning you can try something like VueScan which is compatible with Windows 7. Toshiba devices are not in their list of compatible scanners, but you can never know...
Note that VueScan only works with SCSI, USB and Firewire connections, most wireless Canon and HP scanners (on Windows and Mac OS X only) and doesn't work with parallel-port connections.

This can be solved with a parallel to USB cable converter (be sure to check whether you need male or female parallel to male or female USB converter).

I hope this answers your request.

Connect kyocera fs680 to laptop


it depends on what laptop you have. the fs680 only has a parallel connection so your laptop needs to have a parallel port or you need a usb to parallel converter.

USB CABLE


the printer is designed to work with a parallel cabel connection. usb to parallel conversion cables may or may not work. 
now for the second part is, about the driver (visit manufacturers website for updated drivers), usb driver behaves differently compared to parallel drivers as it expects a usb printer connected to a computer. try both drivers. remember, it may or may not work.
