    Greetings after days of tearing my hair I finally got one of my printers working on Vista. Heres How.

    Note: in the last stage it showed me a full list of Samsung Printers.

    Download the Windows XP 64 Bit Driver and attempt to install it.

    This will extract all the files to a the windows directory.

    No manually install your printer either as a local or a network printer.

    Local printer First even if it's a network printer.

    Choose the Have Disk option

    Locate the Inf File in the Windows/samsung etc, etc directory.

    Click Next.

    You will se a full list of Samsung Lasers, select yours.

    Complete as Usual it will install successfully.

    Network Printer

    Delete the Local printer first.

    Add Network printer as normal, only this time instead of the error message that the remote computer does not have the right drivers it will pick up the 64 Bit driver you've just installed.

    My printer a Samsung ML-1610 Worked first time this way.

    Note: I tried the same method with my HP printer and it failed. as I was unable to find the right Inf file.

    Yours :D

    Ha thats interesting cuz I had the same exact problem but w/ Windows Xp x64, W/ my Samsung 1350 It just wouldn't work at all even w/ their stupid x64 drivers, i was hoping it'd work with vista I'm yet to try it but now that you did hopefully it will. They are good printers but they are discontinued so hopefully the support will stay up.
