I have a terrific Sony dpp fp55 dye sublimation printer
that worked great until Sony decided not
to update the drivers for Windows 7. This is the second time I have had a Sony
product, the last was a laptop Vaio, and Sony stopped keeping up with drivers
for new operating systems.
I did make a work around. First I hammered the VAIO until it was flat and the disk drive could not be used to gather any information. With the sony dpp fp55, I did better. I used my desktop computer with Windows 7 professional to pass all the photos that I wanted to print to a memory card on my Toshiba laptop. That was easy. Then I moved the card to my sony dpp fp55 printer and printed my photos from the memory card. Works fine. Not a big convenience. I also decided to take that hammer to my thumb if I ever bought another Sony product with their Sony Corporation plan of obsolescence, by not keeping up with drivers for their products. I know they have the ability but when you call, they just offer you a new printer. No way, baby. I don't like their business philosophy or their hand in my pocket.
