I am trying to get an older Epson Action Laser 1500 printer to work with my Vista. I told the computer I wanted to add another printer and told them it was a HP 3(recommended from a few places on the web). The computer accepted that. I had connected the printer via a usb port. It looks as though the computer and printer are not interacting. The printer printed fine on an internal test print. What do I need to do?

I could not find a driver but i did find the below which seems to be working for a lot of people.

The ActionLaser 1500 is happy running as an HP LaserJet III, which is natively supported.


I found this at this link HERE

Yes, I tried to connect it by claiming it was a HP3(guess I forgot the word Laserjet in my original post)but still cannot get it to work. I must not have entered something I should have entered. I will keep trying, thanks.

You may want to try the other suggestion and purchase a USB to parallel adapter and try going to your regular printer port.
USB is funny sometimes and you have to load the drivers and then connect the printer afterwards.
