How do i install my Oki microline 320 printer on my mac book pro with Windows xp on it, using an usb cable to connect it to my laptop?

I've read how to install the printer on windows xp, but it doesn't work. i think it's becouse i have the printer conected to my laptop by usb, so i think it doesn't recognize the right port... or something.

I don't know about macs, but you normally need to FIRST install the drivers and THEN connect the printer. If you had an unsuccessful install remove everything and start over after a reboot.

If you have an install CD it should tell you when to connect the printer.

So far I have read that there are no available drivers for windows xp, however i read that xp supports these printers by going to the configuration screen and clicking "add a printer." I did that and I get a printer error. Could it be that the port (lpt1 instead of usb) is the problem??? I tried all port configurations on the menu, with no success.

✔ Best Answer
Is that printer a parallel port model?

Are you using a parallel to USB adapter?

The link below states the same thing you mentioned.
You might try using the hardware wizard and setup the printer manually there. You may have to emulate a parallel port.

You may need to get a PCI parallel port card like the ones linked below.
