HP 650C Designjet plotter

Does anyone have a driver that will work with the HP650C Designjet plotter and Windows Vista operating system so I can use my plotter?  Any help appreciated.

For 64 bit systems you can download the XP x64 drivers from here, then unzip the files into a new folder.  Next go to the Devices and Printers folder, Add a Printer, select the proper port, then select "Have a Disk" and point to the folder where you unzipped the files.  I have used the XP drivers for Vista, Windows 7, 8 and now 10 with my network connected Designjet 650c.

 

For the Designjet you may have better results posting in the HP DesignJet forum here, that is where the DesignJet experts can be found.

Thanks for this information.  I have a 32  bit system.  Is there a driver for that?  Baget

The 32 bit version can use the standard XP driver, download it from HP here.  There are several version, an A and B model and 24" and 36" versions of each.  You can find the model number on the back of the machine, just above the power cord connector.  Select the proper model, then download the 32 bit XP version.  Extract the files to a directory you can easily find later, then add a printer, say you have a disk and point at the appropriate directory.

Hi

 

"For 64 bit systems you can download the XP x64 drivers from here"

 

This link doesn't work unfortunately. Has anyone downloaded this driver? and if so any chance of a copy?

 

Cheers

 

Dav

The forum has gone through some restructuring, breaking that link.  I included the file as an attachment here.  I also edited the link above, it should work now.
