Bar Code prints on Laser printer and can be scanned but ...........

When I print the label on the zebra printer the bar code prints but I am unable to scan the bar code.
I have a crystal report which will create a packing label with a barcode to identify the amount of product packed in a case.  When I created the report I am able to print bar code for scanning on the label and I can scan anything whenit is printed to a laser printer but if I print the label to a zebra printer the bar code will not scan, when I print to a laser printer the bar code will scan?
For some reason I am drawing a blank when it comes to what or why this situation will occur?

Can anyone advise on why this happens and how to fix the situation?

Are you creating the Bar-code as a graphic and then just printing the image to the printers? or are you using the Bar-code language of the Zebra?  the white space is critical  do a comparison of both do they match exactly?

I found out that it is a white space issue, I have been testing with different font sizes and have gotten the labels to scan, I just now need to dial it in...
Thank you

What ever dude, thanks for the help.  

The second answer was able to give me a outline to the font sizes that helped to produce the correct white space.
