Wrong papersize fore printer

How can i select my own papersize for the OKI ML320
I know how i can add one via properties server-create new

But i can't select the new papersize with the OKI ML320
(only the standaard papersizes appear like A4, Letter Legal and so on)

My OS is Win2000 the printer is connected to the computer.

Thanks in advance.

Physically the printer is only capable of handling specific sizes of paper, thus the driver is restricted to those sizes. Yes, you can manually feed most any size you want that is within the standard sizes.

Perhaps there is another way to skin the cat. Why do you feel compellsed to use an odd size?

Okay.. this is going to sound like a wierd suggestion but did you ever try:

Print
Properties
At the Paper/Quality tab select the Tray where the paper is located?

I am not sure what you mean, the tray where the paper is located.

danich:
It is not fore me but fore a client, and the client uses that specific papersize.

Before the pc had win98 as OS and did not have any problems
with the same odd size

Can you tell me which driver are you using: Okidata or Oki ?
And in which mode is the printer: Epson, IBM or Microline mode.
I guess you can't select the new papersize in the Printer properties or is it in a application.
I did have a similar problem with a Oki printer in the past and I managed to define a custom form that worked well.

Get some new printer software from the manufacturers site. Enter OKI at google and go from there.

Good Luck.
