|Have had this problem since vista came out - and others have too (from my googling - there's another unsolved thread on this site), but have not yet seen a working fix for it. We have a networked Magicolor 2300DL printer (ie, its connected directly to the network, not shared through a particular machine). When printing from a vista (or windows 7) machine, there is a delay of several minutes before the print starts. From XP its immediate. If I reinstall the driver, everything works properly until I reboot, then back to slow. I have tried various versions of the driver, and am definitely currently using the latest vista 32 driver from the konica minolta site. I had blamed vmware previously (but that was just because it was one of first things I installed, and it required a reboot, so printing slow after). Ideas like disabling the firewall or TCP/IP v6 make no difference. Other network functions are fine (I do a lot of copy over the network, mainly to XP machines, all works at expected speed).|
Anybody knows how to sort this - much appreciated.
