Copy a binary file to printer
Posted on 2004-10-12
I have a Canon S600 printer connected to the USB port (USB001) of my computer. When I printed a document, instead of printing on the printer, I chose "Print to file". The output was saved in a file called "test.prn". Now I would like to send this binary file to the printer. When I enter the following at the command prompt:
copy /b test.prn USB001
The output didn't go to the printer, but is instead copied to a file called "USB001".
I used to do this same action before, but to LPT1 instead and it worked well for me. Now the problem is that the printer is connected to the USB port instead of the printer port. What can I do to get this binary file printed?
