I suppose it is a good sign the drivers ussnorway references are available. But if the printer isn't being recognized, what type of connection are you using and what settings do you show in the Devices and Printers dialog box, Printer properties (not just properties), and the Ports tab?

The other thing is the drives have versions or PL5 or PL6 or Postscript. Do you know which one your printer uses?
