Today I installed a new PC for them. The new PC runs Wbit. Windows recognises the SD printer but does not have a driver for it that is compatible with Wbit.
I contacted Toshiba and they are sending me a CD with an Autorun installation program and a bit driver pack. Toshiba don't have a standalone file with the driver for the SD. As I don't want to mess up Windows, I asked the technician how safe the installation program was and he seemed to indicate that this was still a "work-in-progress". Understandably I am more than just a little nervous to run this installation program.
Does anyone on the Forum have any experience of doing this. Tabvla , Oct 15, Aug 15, Messages: I am going to try this link,but it may just lead to the selection page.
If so,enter your model number and search. There is also GDI drivers for other functionallity. Should be what you need. OK,I got a system error for the first link,so just click the new link and enter the model number to search for it. It will list the drivers.
Thanks for your reply and the link. I had a look on the Toshiba site and the info provided does not match the product Postscript printing is available if the Postscript option has been installed on the GA Also there is nothing "attached" to the printer there is simply a USB port.
With XP this setup worked "out-the-box". XP recognised the printer and installed it virutally automatically.
Toshiba Technical Dept admits that the arrival of bit computing " You have got to wonder sometimes Now it seems that Toshiba cannot simply create a bit driver-file for the SD but have to create a complete installation program. That is beyond me.
Why not create a driver-file and let W7 do the installation. And then they add that it is " Dec 26, Messages: Not seeing what the problem here is. A simple search on Microsoft's Compatibility site indicates the unit is supported under Windows 7 64 and provides a direct link to the Toshiba site for the drivers.
Here's the MS site: There's no issue with using an installer to install the print and scan drivers as well as Toshiba button software, and yes it's obviously safe and very common practice. I really can't see why this would mess up Windows. If you are against using an installer then the downloaded program creates a folder on your hard drive during the first stages of the installation that you can simply use to install it manually, the print drivers are located in a Print folder, and the rest are located in other folders; once those files are extracted simply cancel the installation.
There may be a very specific reason why they prefer an installer versus manual method, although the installer method is generally the preferred choice for most USB connected all-in-ones since it installs the drivers for all components in one go and enables button functionality on the unit. Triple6 , Oct 15, Rob, thanks for your reply and the helpful information. Normally I would agree with you, but in this case I am very nervous for the following reasons: If this was my PC then I would not have any problem, but this is for a Charity that I help out and the good folk working there are not in the least technical, they rely totally on me to keep them up-and-running.
The "Driver Installation CD" is not available as a download from the Toshiba website nor as a standard "off-the-shelf" item. The Toshiba technician has it on his laptop and is burning me a one-off. I have no idea what is on that CD or what this auto installer actually does. I was advised not to download and use the driver from the Toshiba website, and I quote When I told him that I was a little nervous about running the auto installer he agreed with me but said " When I asked the technician if he could extract the correct driver for me and simply email me the driver file he replied that he couldn't do that as the auto installer and drivers were all in an integrated package.
Perhaps now you will understand why I am nervous. To me this sounds very Micky-Mouse. If they are really having problems with the driver then they would have pulled it from their site in their last three years that it's been up. It sounds like the tech might be a little inexperienced or misinformed as is common with many of them, the driver listed on their website has been there for 3 years and extracts the separate driver files from the EXE and can be used separately from the installer and I assume the CD is the same thing or already has the files extracted, also I doubt they have a different version for the techs than would be available for download, that wouldn't make too much sense that they keep an "unfinished" one thats "problematic" on their website while having a better one for techs; it just would result in too many unhappy customers and more phone calls and support they would provide; something companies like to minimise to make profits.
This guy was very confident. I am technical myself so I usually know what questions to throw at someone to judge if they know what they are talking about. This guy really seemed very confident in his answers. Leaves me totally confused. Rob, there is another possibility that may be relevant to understanding this issue. Equipment supplied to North America often differs from that supplied to Europe. There is no driver for this model on the AU site.
Perhaps this gives some "sense" if you can call it that to this issue. Not really satisfactory considering the size of Toshiba. Tabvla , Oct 16, Well hopefully that CD from the tech will resolve this. Triple6 , Oct 16, Apr 2, Messages: Do a system backup before installing the driver.
If it fails, restore the drive backup. Welcome to Tech Support Guy! TerryNet Sep 14, Toshiba Lap Top Powering up troubles? Tedejc , Aug 13, , in forum: AmateurJohn Aug 13, HeatsFlamesman Jul 23, Toshiba c b 3staxxs , Jul 12, , in forum: Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?

Toshiba E-studio 12 drivers for Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
I've tried with all the drivers offered on their site http: Only one driver was accepted by the "add printer" wizard and it failed to work. Connection is fine - I can access the device's config page by typing in its IP address into a web browser. On Install the printer driver window, click Have Disk button, Browser. However, if the driver doesn't work, it is to say the printer is not compatible with Windows 7. As Nano mentioned, call Toshiba for a workaround. It's go-toshiba in the USA. It may be best to contact Toshiba support. Finally, I don't believe it will work as it did in XP with the Toshiba software. Thanks for the reply.
