Hi, I have searched the Samsung printer site and their is nothing. I has
downloaded there 32bit driver and it fails to install. I was wondering if
anyone has produced a third party driver for this? Anyone know if Windows
Update might have a driver? Thanks

Samsung is the only company that would write a driver for the printer
because it is their hardware. Microsoft does not write the hardware
drivers.

You can try one of the older Samsung printers that are included in the
NTPRINT.INF. The printers in this file are the ones displayed for
selection when you manually install the hardware. Does it emulate an HP
printer? If so, try an HP driver.

I have the same printer and the driver disk but am unsure if the file would
be small enough to attach to an email...What do you think or what are your
ideas on getting this to you?

It is not likely there is a x64 driver on his disc. If there was one,
you would also find it on the Samsung site!

I too have a number of samsung lasers, and awaiting a printing solution
since december. Tried similar sounding printers under samsung in add printer
to no avail, with usb connection anyway. if you have a samsung with NIC, or
a lan adapter, you can probably get it to work, i would think...

What kind of personal attack is this? I am currently in the College of
Medicine at UF.

Regardless of how you access your printer, you need a driver for it. I
have 3 printers on my LAN and currently I can only use 2 of them in x64
because of the need for a driver for the 3rd one. I have x64 drivers
for my Epson Stylus C84 and Brother HL-1440, but not for my Samsung
CLP-550N. Samsung Tech Support told me they expected to have drivers
out in late July or early August.

This is the email I received from Samsung yesterday:

Unfortunately, we do not have Windows XP 64bit Edition drivers for the
ML-1740 nor ML-1750. In addition, there is not a scheduled release date for
64 bit drivers at the current moment. We are sorry for any incoveniences you
may be experiencing.

I guess it's like another post where he said his information was "from
the horses mouth..." It all depends on which horse you happen to talk
to. I called Samsung and the Tech Support guy told me on the phone that
an x64 driver was planned for my CLP-550N.
