    Windows 10 printer driver needed for Konica Minolta Magicolor 5430DL


    I just purchased a new pc with the Windows 10 operating system. I want to use this computer with my Konica Minolta Magicolor 5430DL colour laser printer. The Konica Minolta web site does not appear to have a link to download the driver I need. Can anyone help???

    Thanks

    I guess that the latest drivers available are for Windows 8. They may well work.

    I don't seem to be able to link to them directly.

    Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to do a bit more digging before I start throwing drivers @ this issue

    Good luck.

    I wish that peripheral manufacturers supported their products through more OS changes, but they get no revenue from that. On the other hand, a quick web search finds reviews of the 5430DL from 2004, so it's not exactly a recent product.

    Crap - I'm going to continue badgering Konica-Minolta to see if I can get them moving on this issue. It's a shame that I have a perfectly good printer that I cannot use with my new pc (sadface)!

    Along with "sell more new products", technology required for new/newer OS make the product hardware incompatible.

    I recently had to scrap a perfectly good Roland/Edirol MIDI keyboard because it was a discontinued item (it was an early 2000 introduced product that was discontinued about 5 or 6 years ago) and Roland opted to not continue with driver support for Win 10. Can't really fault the vendor for not supporting that old a product. Current production Roland products are supported in Win 10.
