I have a Dell 3000cn color printer that I need to migrate from a Windows 2000 Server box to a Windows 2003 Server box.  However, Dell does not provide drivers for this model for Windows 2003 Server.  It seems like as popular as this printer model probably is that Dell would put out 2003 drivers.  Any suggestions on how to get this printer connected?

    My only suggest is:  Most computer companies who sell printers do not make their own printers - Yet 'in most cases' printers are manufactured and are a variation of either Lexmark or HP others do exist.  Might want to check the labels and documentation to determine the manufaturer and then determine the Best driver from them.  The 3000cn is likely a variation of a printer already manufactured by the source company.  Then again it may just be that a 2003 Server Driver isn't available.

    Sorry, Not much help but -

    Hope this Helps!!!

    Dell says:

      Min Operating System: (does not support Windows XP 64 bit OS)      
    Bullet      Microsoft®  Windows®  (XP, 2000, NT 4.0, 98, Me, Server 2003)

    The drivers you need are here:

    There is no difference between XP and Server 2003 drivers for this (as well as most) printers.
