IF that link works, download the latest drivers for your printer

Lots of info missing xxtoriaxx. Which Printer, which operating system, are you following the instructions which came with the printer, is the printer software compatible with your PC, is it a modern printer and old PC or vice versa? All these things will help someone to help you.

thank u for that link diodorus but thats the exact same place i downloaded the software from but for some reason when i come to unzip the software it says "94 files unzipped" and then says the file is not supported by MS-DOS. a friend managed 2 successfully download the software and sent it 2 me... but when i try and open the file it says "windows has blocked access to this file". how can i gain access to it? my pc was bought new only 5 months ago and the printer was bought new last month tho not been able to install it as the disc is lost.
