Print driver is not shown in "Print Using:" menu

I have a HP psc 2410 printer that I have connected directly to my Mac, but I want to connect it though my Windows PC which is my home server. The printer works fine when it is connected via the USB cable and the driver listed after "Print Using:" in the add new printer box is called "hp all-in-one 2.2.9". When I try to add the same printer via the Windows network I see it the printer, but when I try to find the driver in the "Print Using:" menu, I don't find it. How can it be there for the USB connection, but not for the network connection? Where do I find it, if it isn't in that driver list?
Thank you!

Print drivers written using the older Mac printer driver model specifically list the type of connections they support. Most of these old style drivers do not support Windows printing. I think that is what you are seeing.

  • Print Driver Settings Not Saving at Print Dialog [IDCS3, Vista]

    Hi. On our only design machine that runs Vista, when the user tries to print something from InDesign CS3 and has to turn on duplexing in the printer driver setup, on clicking OK, those settings immediately go away, and thus the document will not print duplexed. It works fine on our XP machines.
    A workaround is to set such printer driver settings via Vista's Control Panel, and this does work, however it's a bit cumbersome, since we print all kinds of documents.
    Pertaining Specs:
    - Adobe InDesign CS3 (5.0.3) for Windows
    - Vista Home SP1 (I think)
    - Konica-Minolta Bizhub C500
    - EFI Fiery 2.01 Driver for Vista / PostScript / Image Controller 405
    It's similar to this issue, but the specs differ:
    Michael C Stone, "Indesign documents reset printer settings IDCS2 XPSP2" #, 14 Jun 2008 5:19 pm

    It does say, "Double-sided: Yes," in Windows' printer properties for the Bizhub PS (and PCL) Fiery driver(s) -- in fact, this may have been from me turning it on for the PS driver in Windows Registry, as it was off for some reason, but seemed to make no real difference anyway -- but I think the duplexing option would have been grayed-out in the Fiery driver's dialog if not available as some various other options are -- the driver has the capability to poll the device for such options availability -- and I don't actually see anything duplexing-related on the Installable Options tab, but the Installed list is identical to one of our XP computers with no apparent issues with printing to the drivers from InDesign -- although at one point, if a Vista user printed an InDesign document and saved it (and thus the printer settings), XP users for some reason couldn't print the document without forcing a change in the print driver settings, but I believe this was due to using the same drivers but different TCP/IP port configurations per machine (Vista doesn't need the IP_ prefix as XP seems to).

  • Printer driver will not allow color printing

    I have a new Windows 7-64 bit OS on my new computert, and an HP CP1518ni (1500 series) color laserjet printer that has worked fine under Vista (32 bit) previously.
    I went to the driver support site, since my installation disk didn't enable Windows 7, and got the universal UPD PCL6 driver, as indicated, and downloaded it (upd-pcl6-x64-5.4.0.11744.exe) and ran it.  
    It prints just fine in B&W, not in color.  When I go to printer preferences it just says "color - no" and there I'm stuck. 
    Can anyone help?  I can't use a B&W printer for all my work, so I can't switch to this better computer yet.

    to KB123:
    did you remember setting your driver to only print in grayscale? since there is an option to do that on the drivers installed on your computer.
    If you're not sure, try to go to your printer icon under Printers and Faxes (for windows XP) or PRINTERS (for Vista and 7)
    Right click the printer icon and go to printing preferences. Under FEATURE tab, see if there is a check mark on the print in grayscale (its somewhere almost at the bottom of the screen)
    Or else, try to uninstall the drivers of your printer and re.install.

  • Epson r800 prints, but does not appear in Printer List: can't use Utilities

    My Epson r800 prints, but does not appear in Printer List. It is connected via USB to the iMac. A Brother LH-2070N is connected via AirPort Extreme. I need to use Utilities to clean the head of cartridge, check levels, etc.. Is there a way to fix this problem?
    iMac   Mac OS X (10.4.9)  

    For your Epson try this:
    Hard Drive, Library, Printers (folder), Epson folder,
    Inkjetprinter folder, Utilities folder and here you
    will find Epson Printer Utility2. Click on it and it
    should work.
    Note. Epson utilities will not work unless the
    Printer is directly connected to the computer.
    Had the same issue with my 2200 photo and the above
    worked.
    Tried again after reinstalling the drivers. There is no separate Inkjet Folder, but the Printer Utility is within the Epson folder. Unfortunately, the r800 still does not appear in the Printer List, hence no utility.

  • Adobe Pdf Converter Print Driver Will not install

    Acrobat V9.0
    Vista Utimate Service Pack 1
    I have not been able to print to the PDF Printer. I get the following error when I select the PDF printer.
    "The 'Adobe PDF Converter' printer driver is not installed on this computer. Some printer properties will not be accessible unless you install the printer driver. Do you want to install the driver now?"
    When I say yes and select version 8.5.0.0 printer since it is the latest version. I get a Add Printer Driver Wizard window that says. "Unable to install adobe pdf converter, Type 3 - User Mode, x86 driver. Access is denied.
    I went through all the recommended steps on the web site listed below with no success.
    Thanks in advance for you help.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Solution 1: Use a supported installation.
    The following are unsupported installations, and the supported solutions:
    If you install Acrobat (Professional or Standard) on a 64-bit operating system, then you may
    see this error. Please update Acrobat to version 8.1 or later. You can update from within
    Acrobat via the help pull-down menu, or download the updater from the following location:
    http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/product.jsp?product=1&platform=Windows.
    If you install Acrobat to a shared network disk instead of a local hard disk, then the Adobe PDF
    printer is not installed. Install Acrobat on a local hard disk.

    I am having similar problems. After years of successful use, about a year ago, my printer (Epson stylus Photo R300) stopped working. After much investigation, it appears my computer no longer recognizes my printer. I've followed resets, safe boots, uninstalls, reinstalls, etc. This happened so long ago, I don't recall what I was doing when it happened. I'm figuring it happened shortly after a Software Update... So far none of the fixes recommended to me have solved the problem. I've been using Epson customer support, but they've stopped responding. None of their suggestions have seemed to work either.

  • I am using windows 7 and can't get the print drives to load for F2210 printer

    I am using windows 7 and can't get the print drives to load for F2210 printer and I keep receiving different fatal error codes.

    Hello @Imvertical 
    Welcome to the forums!
    I read about how you're attempting to install your Deskjet F2210 on your Windows 7 system and receive Fatal Error codes. I will do my best to help and make some suggestions for you to try. 
    To being, try a standard copy from the unit to see if it will copy. If copies work, continue troubleshooting. If not, let me know what happened when you made a copy.
    Next:
    Perform a Level 3 uninstall.
    There are 2 ways you can run the uninstall:
    From Original installation CD:
    1. Insert CD into drive, and then cancel the installer
    2. Click Start and open 'Computer', and then right click on the CD drive and open
    3. Open folder Util
    4. Open folder CCC
    5. If you have an HP computer run the L3uninstall.exe. If you have a non-HP computer run the L4uninstall.exe
    6. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer
    7. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools
    8. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player
    http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
    9. Download the full feature software and drivers: HP Deskjet F2200/F2224 All-in-One Printer series Full Feature Software and Driver
    10. Run the download to reinstall the printer
    If software was downloaded and extracted to your system:
    1. Click Start and type %temp% in the run field
    2. Look for, and open the folder starting with 7z (Example: 7zS2356) (If there is more than one, choose the most recent folder)
    3. Open folder Util
    4. Open folder CCC
    5. If you have an HP computer run the L3uninstall.exe. If you have a non-HP computer run the L4uninstall.exe
    6. When the uninstall has completed restart the computer
    7. Run Disk cleanup from Accessories\ System Tools
    8. Download and install the latest version of Adobe flash player
    http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html
    9. Download the full feature software and drivers: HP Deskjet F2200/F2224 All-in-One Printer series Full Feature Software and Driver
    10. Run the download to reinstall the printer
    Please let me know if the installation worked after the Level 3 uninstall.
    Good luck and have a nice Wednesday!

  • Printer driver was not installed.  operation could not be completed

    Adobe Acrobat 9.3.1
    windows XP system.
    Cannot add the Adobe PDF printer get the error message:
    Printer driver was not installed.  operation could not be completed
    Software installs/repair try to install the Adobe PDF printer but they do not.  No error message; just that the Adobe PDF printer does not show up
    I tried adding the  Adobe PDF printer manually.
    The drivers start to load and then fails giving the error message  in the subject line.
    I cleared the print spoolers and rebooted.
    I have uninstalled Adobe Acrobat /rebooted/reinstalled.  Install says it adds the Adobe PDF printer but nothing happens.
    Problem exists for all users including Administrators.
    I have renamed the C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86 and C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\drivers\Printers folder.
    Both are recreated when I try to reinstall the Adobe PDF Printer.
    I can add network printers with no errors.
    I have cleared Adobe PDF printer from registry.  e.g.:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Environments\Windows NT x86\Drivers\Version-3\Adobe PDF Converter
    I even imported Adobe PDF registry entry from a working system taking care to adjust the system values accordingly.
    I also verified permissions for registry keys and application/driver folders were set correctly.
    I have completely reloaded the installation software and imported the Adobe PDF drivers from a working system.
    Not sure if this an Adobe issue, but that appears to be the only printer I cannot re-add.
    Any constructive ideas on what to try next would be appreciated.

    When I upgraded to Reader 9.4 I lost all ability to print Adobe pdf's.  Finally uninstalled 9.4, re-installed 8.2, changed the filename "high quality.joboptions" to "Adobe PDF converter.joboptions" and was back in business.  Pretty screwey fix, but after getting no help from online chats with Adobe and a day's lost work I was happy to have it.

  • Printer Preferences is not available when printing PDF

    Printer Preferences is not available when printing PDF
    I have a PSC 1315 printer I have been using for several years on a system with Windows XP without any problem.  After
    purchasing an HP Pavilion 500 with Windows 8.1 Pro, I migrated my printer to the new computer.  I was disallowed to use the
    original driver, and was directed to download the latest driver and software for this printer from an HP website.  At
    first, things seemed ok, until I ran across several issues, one of which is this one.
    Whenever I try printing a PDF file, Windows 8 does not let me see printer preferences.  My work around is to go into
    printer properties and save changes as default, then I can print PDF files.  What happened to the preferences window?  It
    appears I have lost functionality with the upgrade.
    Is this a known problem, and what's the solution?

  • IPod Touch drive is not shown !

    First, I'm using Windows 7 Ultimate x86. Once connected to the PC, my iPod Touch is charging normally and appears in iTunes but iPod Touch drive is not shown !
    In the Windows Device Manager, iPod appears in Other devices but the Apple Mobile Device USB Driver is installed and ready to use !!!

    Do you have any other peripheral devices attached such as a scanner or other imaging devices?  It is possible that there is a conflict between one of them and your iPod.  Disable or temporarily remove them and see if your iPod works then.  You may have to unplug and replug in the iPod after you disable the other device.

    It has been not more than 10 days since i bought iphone 5s 32gb and the finger print scanner is not detecting the prints.what to do??is it an issue with the device or iOS??

    Standard practices:
    Restart the device (power off completely, then back on) - retest.
    Reset (hold sleep wake and home buttons until apple logo appears) - you can try this, but it is most useful when your device is frozen.
    Restore to factory settings - retest.
    Make an appointment at an Apple retail store genius bar if the above did not resolve the issue.
