3 page Duplex Printing

Hi there

 I have a Samsung SCX-6555N printer with a duplexer attached. When printing a 3 page document, I get the first page of the second letter printed on the back of the last page of the first letter and it seems quite illogical to have to remember every time to add an extra page to a document with an odd number of pages, not to mention if 50 copies are printed accidentally, that would be a waste of paper.

Is there a solution for this??

Thanks

Supposing that you are printing with windows, the duplex printing should be an option in the printer settings of your application, for example Microsoft Word.
But that printer has a button that permits to have duplex even if you don't set such function in your document job.
So i guess that the duplex printing is always set in your printer, perhaps with such button or perhaps with some menu on the board display of the printer.

Let me elaborate furthur. I'm printing from a 2003 terminal server in word. I select the duplex option in printer settings. Then print. And then what is described above occurs.

Are you doing some type of mail merge?
You are talking about letters so I guess that you are printing one document (one printing job)
If you print two separated documents (two different files), I can't believe that the printer mixes the documents, since there is an "end print job" after every document.
I think you are talking about mail merge and so you are searching for a method to "break" the document before the next letters begin.
Is it true?

no. im printing one document, multiple copies. when i referred to letters, what im doing is im doing an unaddressed mail drop, hence the same document printed 50 times over.

If you are talking mail merge, you have to edit your mail merge, replacing the Next Page breaks between letters with Odd Page breaks.
This will insert a blank verso page with no header or footer.

Oh, multiple copies.
I think there is a bug in the driver.
I've seen this happen even for hp.

I don't know if there is a solution, perhaps an updated pritner driver
