    I have small notebook printer Citizen PN48. The driver is available in
    windows XP, but not in the list in Vista Home Premium. I was told, that
    the driver that works with NT will work with Vista. I need to get "inf"
    printer file for PN48, but I couldnt find one. Whatever I tried to get
    from Internet, was without "inf" file and I cant install it. Please help
    me, I do not wish to spend $200-300 for the new one, its small, fits in
    the briefcase.

    Thank you

    According to the Citizen Website, for Vista you have to use the

    Citizen Swift 240 ESC P/2

    driver that's included with Vista.

  3. You can also install the XP driver if you have the XP install CD

    Use Have disk in Vista

    Point to XPCD\i386\ntprint.inf

    ]Hi, fellas. The Swift 240 doesnt work. The Citizen support said tha
    LQ-850/LQ-2500 might help, but I dont have them either on my laptop
    The window CD I have its for recovery, so I dont know if the fil
    XPCD\i386\ntprint.inf accessible. Maybe I should uninstall the Vista an
    install the XP, but I dont know how to do that.
    My printer has cable with parallel connector and I have the adapter t
    USB. So I instal it on USB po virtual port, not LPT. Is it right?

    Thanks again

  6. Add the driver using Add Driver

    In the printers folder right click any white space
    Run as Administrator
    Server Properties

    Drivers Tab

  7. Good luck with that.

    The most reliable USB to parallel conversion cable I have experienced is the
    Belkin F5U002.

    Just for your information, the LQ 850 / LQ 2500 appear to be Epson dot
    matrix printer numbers. Try those?
