I am having trouble getting an epson receipt printer to work on windows xp. I know these thermal printers can be finicky. The printer has a serial output with a belkin serial to usb adapter.
If I create a generic text printer, I can at least print. But trying to install the advanced printer driver 4, I get either, "user intervention required" or "not ready". Each time I have tried a different port or driver, I have uninstalled the previous driver through add/remove programs.
Unfortunately, this computer does not have a regula serial port. I have another computer which I can't use for production that does have a serial port and when I take off the belkin, it works fine.
I have downloaded the belkin drivers and the epson usb driver. I have tried to set the printer up as serial, parallel and usb. I am pretty sure it is supposed to be serial.
I'm ready to just use the generic printer. I would like to figure this out though. Any insight would be appreciated.
