I had this problem of the printer reportings "Corrupted Data" on a Samsung CLP-300 and a Samsung MPL-1910 printer and found a software setting that resolves the issue. I only found this issue on Windows 8.1 but I'm not sure it's Windows OS related. I just hadn't had this problem on Windows 7, Vista or XP. My printers are all on my home network connected to print servers so use TCP/IP ports on the laptop.
Go to the Printer Properties menu and select the "Ports" tab (3rd from the left near the top of the menu box.
Select "Configure Ports..." within this tab
If you have "RAW" selected then select LPR.
I added a Queue Name to match the Print server but I'm not sure if this is required
Then click OK and then you'll be returned to the Printer Properties Menu box.
Select the "General" tab on the extreme left of the tabs and click on "Print Test Page"
If you get a "WIndows Printer Test Page" out then this has resolved your problem.
I notice that it still reports on the Test Page that the format is RAW but now it works fine.
I should have updated this a while ago, as I see others have had the same problem since my post on 27 August.
After calling Samsung technician out to take a look, he suggested getting a higher quality cable (conected to the computer). Despite the fact that the cable which we'd been using for months always seemed to work ok, we got another one of higher quality, and the printer now works fine.
I don't know why the cable stopped working efficiently, but it did.
SPL stands for "Samsung Printer Language". You are using an USB cable that is either too long (above 6 ft.) or too thin (cheap cables).
The reason why the test page prints is because it is a very simple and small page (thinking on kbyte terms). But larger streams of data do not arrive correctly due to attenuation and the error page prints instead.
If it is absolutely necessary to connect beyong 6 ft, you need either a good quality USB cable (try the Belkin brand found at OfficeMax), or connect using a parallel cable.
