Hi

I have two printers that i need to add to my 2008R2 WIN7/XP domain
They are

Olivetti d-copia 400
Olivetti d-copia 300MF

The olivetti site dosent support said domain, Ive been told Kyocera do compatible drivers, i have tried a few and they do print but functionality is limited ie duplexers and certain fonts are not available

Can anyone point me to the correct driver on Kyoceras site that would alow the duplexers and fonts to work

Thanks in advance

Universal driver (huge)
http://usa.kyoceradocumentsolutions.com/americas/jsp/Kyocera/resource_details.jsp?pid=26124&rid=26733

I think windows includes the driver. Please check windows catalog (well - you have to guess respective kyocera model from the pictures)

Those drivers are for the non R2 version of Windows 2008.

These are the Windows Server 2008 R2 drivers for the d-copia 400: http://www.olivetti-deutschland.de/download/treiber.aspx?product=Digital_Kopierer_A3&model=d-Copia_400&os=Windows_Server_2008_R2_(64_Bit)

These are the Windows Server 2008 R2 drivers for the d-copia 300MF: http://www.olivetti-deutschland.de/download/treiber.aspx?product=Digital_Kopierer_A3&model=d-Copia_300MF&os=Windows_Server_2008_R2_(64_Bit)

These drivers are from the German Olivetti site though so you may find that when you go to configure the properties of the printer, the properties/preferences windows may show up in German instead of English.

print drivers take time to write and most printer companies tend to spend their resources writing drivers for their new printers instead of the old ones they don't make any money on any more.
This leads to the 'universal' drivers that the Olivetti (and most other printer manufacturers) website is suggesting for the printers you have listed.
Universal drivers are a bit of a catch-all job and are not specific to any one printer. this tends to mean that some features do not work as they were originally intended.

Ive been told Kyocera do compatible drivers,
there's your problem right there.... compatible
compatible means it 'should' work, but doesn't mean it was designed for the printer. as with 'universal' drivers, you are unlikely to get all the features of the printer.

The only real solution is to get a newer printer that is designed to be compatible with your OS.
