Windows 7 Drivers for Designjet 430

When will HP be offering driver(s) for Windows 7 (both 32 & 64 bit) for the Designjet 430?

The post by RASH was not helpful. The link that is in his post does NOT contain any Windows 7 drivers for the 430.

Re: Windows 7 Drivers for Designjet 430

Hi Gary,

I just got my HP 430 Designjet working on Windows 7.

I purchased an IEEE1284 to USB printer cable and hooked it up. I turned on my 430 and went to Windows 7 Devices and Printers. I selected Add a printer and clicked Add a Local Printer. Then I changed the existing port to USB 001 (Virtual Port for USB).
Then I selected my HP 430 Designjet and downloaded a driver.

It installed and works perfectly with my DeltaCad 7.0 softwear on Windows 7. Not Windows 7 Virtual Machine, but on Windows 7.

I don't know what driver Windows loaded, but the program is smarter than I am. Bottom line, IT WORKS!!!

Rodney,

Glad it worked for you. Could you please post the make and model number of the usb to parallel adapter you used since not all of these are the same so when one works it is good to pass it on to others who read this thread.

Did you ever find out the manufacturer and model of the USB to Parallel adaptor referred to by Rodney Short?

I have one from Cables Unlimited but cannot get the DesignJet working.

Re: Windows 7 Drivers for Designjet 430

This method worked with the following modifications.   I first disabled the automatically generated, non-working version of the HP DesignJet 430 under the USB IEEE-1284 Cable that was acting like a printer.  I used USB 002(Virtual Port for USB) since USB001 sent the test to my HP Officejet 6500.  I also had to have Windows get me more HP selections of Printers.  DesignJets were not on the original list.  Finding this solution ended days of trying to solve this problem.  I will note calling, E-mailing HP was of no use.

Re: Windows 7 Drivers for Designjet 430

This is the magic trick to make it all work.  Down loading drivers did not work for me.  The cheapest USB to parallel port was thru Office Depot's Web Store Cables to Go for a little less than $11.

You need a usb-parallel cable, not a usb-serial cable.  You will need a cable that is supported in Windows 7.  The posts here have cables folks have reported working in Windows 7.
