While this post and these updates are specific to Zebra ID card printers, this is a great time to remind all of you to check periodically for firmware and driver updates for your ID printers, regardless of make or model. While some of the updates seem minor, manufacturers constantly tweak their products to make sure they work as well as possible. The updates can include anything from fixes for bugs to support for new features to improvements in speed or print quality, which we all want!
This particular update from Zebra is to Version 5.30.00 and is available on the printer pages for their ZXP Series 1 and Series 3 printers. The update will also be included on driver CDs included with all printers manufactured starting September 2014.
The update improves network printing performance and resolves some previous driver release issues. These and other changes are detailed in the release notes that accompany the driver updates at the links provided above. These notes are brief and provide some helpful extra information, so they’re worth checking out if you have one of these printers (they may even help address a concern you’ve had with your printer!).
As always, if you need assistance applying these updates, or if you should have any questions, you can call and speak with our experts at +1 888.485.4696 or +1 704.535.5200. We are always glad to help!
