Specs: Windows 7
samsung sp 0912 My laptop with windows 7 Professional, does not recognize the dot matrix printer Samsung SP 0912. I got the printer as a gift and is still brand new, I can still get the cartridge and have a box full of continuous feed paper. Really would like to use this printer at my school in my class as we only have one computer at school and the secretary is not always willing to help. Her printer also does not connect to my laptop (too old) Please HELP!!!!

It is an old Windows 9x Printer, it must have been manufactured in the 90's

Googling is quicker than waiting for an answer....

You face two major hurdles here. Firstly there is the physical connection. I suspect the printer has a parallel interface but the laptop is probably only USB.
Second and more problematic would be the lack of any WIN7 drivers for it. It won't be a plug-n-play device.

Google has very few references to that model printer and it seems to have been distributed only in some South American countries.
People were having difficulties with this model over 12 yrs ago so even though yours might be "New" it is really OLD but un-used. The person who gifted it to you would have been more generous had they given you a pencil to write on the roll of paper.
