    I have installed the 32 bit driver for my Minolta 1300W. I can print happily in XP mode but I don't seem to be able to be able to use the printer in the Windows 7 host (64 bit Pro). Should I be able to see it as a printer if I attempt to print a document in Office? Launching the application doesn't help.

    Many thanks for your help.

    Do you have the proper driver for 64 bit Windows 7? A lot of older hardware wasn't updated by manufacturers, they want you to buy new! Did you check their site and see if there is an up to date driver.

    Hello Joe

    Unfortunately Minolta have not created a 64 bit driver for this printer.
