How to Install Ricoh Driver for Universal Print to Use Your Printer's Options

305 ratings | 359938 views
This video shows you how to install the Ricoh Driver for Universal Print and make the appropriate options available to you. By default, if the Ricoh Print Driver installation doesn't detect your printer and-or it's accessories, it may not print properly or in color, and you may be missing options such as duplexing, hole punch, and stapling. With a few adjustments, you can make the printer work exactly as it should. The PCL6 Driver for Universal Print can be downloaded here: http://bitli.es/ricoh

I don't get the ports-thing, and it's not very helpfull if someone tells you that now he chooses whatever already set up TCP/IP thing, that I cant choose, because I havent done it. I just want to connect my printer like everyone via USB, I have plenty of ports, so what to choose.

hello man.. i have ricoh usb printer with driver cd. but i am not able to install in linux system. it is not showing the model no. what gonna do?
Konstantin BIFERT (3 months ago)
Some people were born with Windows and will die with it. Without ever trying something else, waste of time to come here, I recon it in the first 3s of the video. "You're on Linux ? Please reinstall to Windows" is sooooo lame, at the point it's kinda a meme.
TheRed Eye (1 year ago)
why?? it is official computer. i cant do that. what is the problem with linux??
Michael Hannigan (1 year ago)
You need to get Windows.

Any idea if that can work on a SP C231SF? I tryed installing the offical driver for wind 10 x64 but... they fail to install. I am despearte
Michael Hannigan (2 years ago)
+Thomas Vailly The Windows 10 driver should work. If you haven't tried already, I would uninstall any drivers you have installed and then install that one fresh.
Thomas vailly (2 years ago)
+Michael Hannigan Thx for the quick answer!! I tryed SP6 et 5 but apparently the SP C 231sf is not covered by these driver so... nothing is printed I am running on w10 x64 so I tryed: driver w10 x64; w8 x64,w 8.1 x64, but they all produce a error at the installation. I also tryed on an other system OSX el Capitain... nothing is printerd. It's terribl because the toner are full!!!
Michael Hannigan (2 years ago)
Yes, it should work. Have you tried the universal driver?
Deejee Madrox (2 years ago)
For some reason i cannot install the printer drivers properly according to Ricoh's guidelines. Printer usb and power off, install driver and then turn the printer on and attach the usb cable result always in the same; unknown device (name ricoh sp 211) . Only a manually setup with "add a printer" works for me. But the thing is; the unknown device is still there, as long as the printer is powered on. How can i fi this ? OS= Win 7 64bit. Drivers from Ricoh, orginals from CD. USB printer cable.

Michael Hannigan (2 years ago)
+Deejee Madrox Try going into the printer ports and deleting any odd ports you see in there. Theb reinstall. That can cause the kind of problem you are seeing.
Deejee Madrox (2 years ago)
+Deejee Madrox do i add a new printer with te web drivers, with the printer off and usb cable out or is it just like the official instruction. The latter instructions gives me what i have, a unknown "ghost" printer next to the manually added printer, which is working btw.
Deejee Madrox (2 years ago)
+Deejee Madrox i am quite advanced in adding removing hardware, building pc's and configuring them. But this printer setup, i just do not get it.
Deejee Madrox (2 years ago)
+Deejee Madrox And yes, i always delete the previous printer/drivers. In the screen Apps/Printers. What else is there to do...

I need a driver for windows XP but the website says that this discontinued. Where I can get it?
Larry Molero (2 years ago)
+AdriaNnLA Thank you very much , but solvent the problem , add the printer using their ID without the need for a driver
AdriaNnLA (2 years ago)
+Larry Molero I was able to locate XP driver utilizing the wayback machine (archive.org) by first locating the page listing the drivers for the machine on the ricoh or savin site, then pasting that URL into the box on the internet archive site. Savin notes quite helpfully that they pulled the XP drivers 2015 April, and there is a snapshot at the archive dated April 3, 2015 - et voila!

Curtis Crenshaw (3 years ago)
Way too complex for someone like me.
Curtis Crenshaw (3 years ago)
I don't see a link to the driver. Besides, every link I've seen so far wants you to scan your whole system and make you buy something. I hate that.
