You may have problems with your labelwriter no longer being recognised when you upgrade your computer to the latest version of MAC OS X 10.10 (“Yosemite”)

If you experience this problem then upgrade to the latest Dymo software for Macs, which can be found HERE.

You can download the new Windows 8 driver for Dymo’s ranges of labelwriter printers here:

We finally have an answer from Dymo as to why some versions of the Labelwriter 320 & 310’s aren’t supported by the new Windows 7 and Vista drivers, while other versions of the same printers are.

Apparently, it’s all down to the usb chipset. It looks like Microsoft may have dropped support for an older USB chipset that is used by some of the old labelwriter printers, and this means that the new OS’s simply can’t detect the hardware – even if emulating XP in a virtual machine.

So that’s pretty final for those unsupported models – the OS simply can’t detect that the labeller is attached because it just doesn’t recognise the particular USB chipset. This means that we can be pretty sure that if it’s not supported now it won’t be supported by any future drivers that may be released.

There are a couple of solutions for those with unsupported printers, as previously mentioned here:

Vista & Windows 7 solutions for unsupported Labelwriter 320 / 310 Machines

Dymo Label Printers have posted a useful page of information covering the use of the old labelwriters with Vista and Windows 7.

As previously reported here the Dymo Labelwriter 310 driver for Windows 7 & Vista does not support all of the 300 series printers. Dymo Label Printers have proposed a few solutions, but rather than repeat them here you can read them for yourself:

Solutions for unsupported labelwriters with Windows 7 & Vista

The Dymo Software Development Kit (SDK) can now be downloaded here:

Dymo Windows SDK
Dymo Mac SDK

The Dymo SDK allows the easy integration of label printing into your applications. Features such as barcodes, text curving & rotation, graphics resizing etc are available to make powerful labelling functions available to you with minimum coding.

(For developers only)

Dymo’s response to our enquiries about the release of the official Windows 7 driver for Dymo LabelWriter printers is that there is still no release date.

We therefore advise people to use the ‘stable beta’ version of the driver (v8.2.0.820) which can be found here:

Dymo LabelWriter Driver

Apparently, this works just fine with Windows 7 and we’ve not heard of any problems with it so far.

Driver Downloads

The Windows 7 drivers will be made available with the release of the new DYMO Label™ v.8 software. The UK release is expected “at the end of September” – I’m assuming that’s 2009… ;-)

It’s not clear at this stage if any of the old LW3xx series will be supported, but I think it’s fairly safe to assume that the really old ones that weren’t Vista compatible probably won’t be Windows 7 compatible either.

Currently it is not possible to get the LabelWriter working with the Windows 7 drivers using the latest version of the Dymo Label Software.
