  • Bowie_04 Nov 07, 2008

    Yes, I have same problem.

    I try to configure the printer's port (I currently use Canon BJC-2100SP) using all of options, but the printer still not responding. But, in Control Panel - Printers and Faxes, it says that printer is in ready state.

    What should I do? I've pay for this product, and this is what I get?

I have bafo-bf-1284 usb to parallel converter but i don't have driver cd. problem creating to install this product in windows 7 or windows xp please help me.

The BF-1284 driver (zip file) is available from BAFO support: . Scroll down the list to the desired product. The driver is for Win98se and Windows Me. You shouldn't need a separate driver for Win7; the drivers should be in the OS. (See the link on Windows 7 compatibility near the top of the URL given above.) I suspect the driver should also be available in the OS for XP.

If your computer doesn't find the driver automatically, check if the driver is listed in Windows Update as optional updates. (You may have to manually check for updates.)

I hope this helps.

Printer duplicate rows from the document

I dont even get working...
When I turn on the printer and put on-line this happens:

1. "hardware connected" alert sound ("tiru")
2. printer gets initialized.
3. "hardware disconnected" alert sound ("turi").
4. go to 1.

This stops when I turn off the printer.
