I am currently pulling my hair out trying to connect our photocopier to my pc so it can be used as a printer. The photocopier is a Kyocera Mita KM-2030. I will tell you what i have already done and maybe people can tell me if im going wrong somewhere.

Firstly i bought an ieee to usb cable to connect the two pieces of equipment. Then i downloaded the correct driver (KX Driver). I ran the driver and simply went through the installation process. When i finish it says it has completed and shows up on my list of printers / fax machines.

However when it prints a test page automatically at the end of the installation it comes up with the error "document failed to print". Further to this when i try to print a standard document it spools i.e. enters the queue but never progresses any further?

Can anyone offer any suggestions?

Ashley :thumbsup:

Driver downloads, http://www.kyoceramita.co.uk/index/product...M2030._.EN.html

I'd try a second download...after removing all drivers currently installed for same.

I have just done that, i tried all of the drivers under the relevant O/S section (XP), and none of them worked :thumbsup:. Anymore ideas?

I have none...I've historically found peripheral device (printers/scanners, etc.) problems to normally be a matter of drivers not installed or file corruption that is solved by uninstalling all software/drivers...and then reinstalling.

Someone else here may have some clues, be patient :thumbsup:.
