The XP driver will work as long its a W7-32bit environment. W7-64 will not.

You might try if "Windows Update" offers a suitable driver too. Search under "Minolta" not KonicaMinolta for Di351 or Pi-3502. The latter is the controller used for your Di-351. The "Universal-Driver" (why they made that crap btw?) is for Emperon equipped machines only.

windows update does not have a driver for this machine, and get away from the universal driver. The universal drivers that Konica Minolta put out are crap, go find the correct driver for your machine. if there is a Vista driver on the list, it will work better than the XP driver.

again i appreciate you guys help

There are no Vista or W7 drivers for this machine. However there is a XP-64bit driver here:

Support & Drivers Search Results | Product: Pi3502 / File Type: Drivers / Operating System: Windows XP 64-Bit (http://onyxftp.mykonicaminolta.com/download/SearchResults.aspx?productid=342&filetypeid=0&osid=13)

Worth a try perhaps.

A long time ago, I got one of these machines working in a windows 7 environment by simply finding and using another windows supplied PCL printer driver for some other manufacturer. Cant remember what it was but it did the trick.

(customer didnt care about duplexing or tray selection) so the fact that it just printed OK was good enough.. Obviously anything other than simply printing wont work with the incorrect driver..
