I have a Samsung ML-1710 laser printer. Windows update in XP and Vista have
always given me the ML-1610 printer driver.
The printer is connected to my XP Desktop and shared over the network. My
new Vista laptop running Vista Home Premium installed the printer just fine,
after a few tries. I can print to the printer just fine, but I can't change
any printer preferences.
For example in Word if I set up a landscape page and tell the printer to
print landscape, it still prints portrait. Print preview also shows
I did not have any problems communicating with this printer from my XP
P.S. Windows update updated the driver for both my XP and Vista machine when
I was still having problems just getting it to print.
The good news -- eventually there will be a Service Pack.
