Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I too use DOS under XP and have noticed that sometimes printing to a file and then spooling the file to the printer is a solution. But only sometimes. At least once under XP I have had to print (from a DOS program) to a file and then print the file from Windoze.

But first, open a DOS window. try screen print. does that work? try issuing PRINT command from DOS. does that work? If not, then something may be incorrectly defined to LPT1 or PRN1.

    I suppose there are two questions that pop to mind: 1) This printer is connected to your printer via a parallel port, right? Specs say this printer can be parallel or USB, that's why I ask. 2) Some DOS programs do not insert a page eject at the end of the printed page, especially if they work well with a tractor-feed printer (some of the early music plotting apps were designed for this -- I'm assuming that's what you meant by 'staffs'). What program are you using? Knowing that, we might know some workarounds.
