  • To install this printer driver, you must have an account that has Manage Printers permission. Log on as an administrator or Power Users group member.

If the printer driver is already installed and plug and play is enabled, the icon of the printer connected to the “usb” port appears in the [Printers] window.

The printer drivers can be installed from the CD-ROM provided with this machine.

If the printer driver is not already installed, follow the printer's plug-and-play instructions to install it from the provided CD-ROM.

1Connect the printer and computer using the USB cable.

Connect the USB cable firmly.

The [Found New Hardware] dialog box appears.

2Click [Locate and install driver software (Recommended)].

If the [User Account Control] dialog box appears, click [Continue].

3Click [Don't search online].

A message prompting you to insert the provided CD-ROM appears.

4Insert the provided CD-ROM into the computer's CD-ROM drive.

The printer driver search begins, and a list of printer drivers appears.

5Select the printer driver you want to use, and then click [Next].

If the [Windows can't verify the publisher of this driver software] message appears, click [Install this driver software anyway].

6Click [Close].

If the installation is successful, the icon of the printer connected to the “USB001” port appears in the [Printers] window.


  • To disable Auto Run, press the [Shift] key when inserting the CD-ROM into the drive and keep it pressed until the computer finishes reading from the CD-ROM.

  • The number after “USB” varies depending on the number of printers connected.

  • The USB port is available only for the printer driver that is installed first. To install additional drivers for this printer, install them using other ports (such as LPT1). Then, after the installation, change the port settings to the specified USB port.
