Question about Konica Minolta magicolor 2300DL Laser Printer
Does anyone know of any windows 7 drivers? My printer is in perfect condition, seems ridiculous to discard it because I cannot find any drivers for it with windows 7.
Two Minolta 2300DL windows 7 64-bit solutions(choose oneoption): 1) Download the XP 64-bit driver and extract to a folder: ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/crc/out_going/windows/2300d_64b.exe then Control Panel>Devices and Printers>Add aprinter> Add a local printer>choose USB printer port>select the "HaveDisk" button(do not select a printer) and browse navigate to where you savedthe XP 64-bit driver "MLUU_DRV.inf" driver file which installs and worksfine. Only issue is now have a 3 minutewait delay for each print job using the universal driver compared to no delaywhen printing with XP. OR 2) Follow the Vista USB port(not network) install guide butstill use the XP 64-bit driver. ftp://ftp.minolta-qms.com/pub/crc/out_going/manuals/misc/km_vista_instruct.pdf 3) 32-bit option use the Vista 32-bit driver first as thatshould work.

No the cause of the delay is monitor file that has to be remove it ..
Finally got my 2300dl working with Win 7HP 64-bit. Managed to scrounge a 25/36 Centronics Cable from an old employer. Installed the KM XP 64bit driver on my new machine. Installed the 2.85s printer firmware upgrade using my old XP machine.
Got the slowwwww... printing problem.
Ratcheting down UAC solved it, but was a little uncomfortable keeping it there.
Found the monitoring dll, which on my machine was MLUU_MON.dll, not MLMON_B.dll. Deleted it from Win 7 safe mode. So far everythings golden, test printed several files from Word, Excel and Foxit Reader while UAC was at default setting. No problems. WOO HOO!
