Sony DPP FP55

I'm quite disappointed that Sony did not continue support with a driver for Windows 7. I have not had the printer very long and really liked it. A month ago, I threw a very good Canon scanner in the trash for the very same reason. There were third parties that produced the driver for the scanner, but I guess that I was upset with Canon, as I am now with Sony. I probably did not print 50 photos from the printer when I upgraded to Windows 7 and found that the driver was incompatable and also was not going to be created for the printer. I thought the print quality was quite good and the automatic feed worked very well. Hard to believe that such a small printer could produce such fine prints. I took it on vacations and used the post card backing and sent them via snail mail to my family and friends, writing personal notes on each.

I have a lot of supplies for the printer, so I was happy that I found a work-around, a little less convenient, but not too bad, and that is that my laptop has a card slot for several kinds of memory cards and that includes the Sony. I modify my prints that were taken at 12 mega pixels, so I have a lot to work with without much degradation, especially when going to 4 X 6, then copy all that I want to print to the memory card. After all the photos are copied, I remove the card and insert it into the slot in the printer and print them all. Afterwards I clear the card and place it back in my laptop for next time. I'm not happy that Sony is trying to create new sales by not supporting what they have sold to me, especially after having owned it for less than a year. I'll stay clear of Sony purchases in the future as well as Canon devices other than cameras, which is what I use.
