Windows 7: Dell 2130cn printer - duplex doesn't work

Dell 2130cn printer - duplex doesn't work

Installed the optional hardware to enable duplex printing when this printer was USB attached to my Dell laptop docking station while it was running XP Pro. The printer functioned flawlessly...duplex feature as well.

Wiped drive clean and installed Windows 7...couldn't find any Windows 7 native printer drivers, but used 32-bit Vista drivers and printer utility application. All works well, still USB attached, but the duplex printing option is not available as an option. Verified that the duplex-enabling hardware was still installed, turned printer off/on a few success.

Can anyone direct me to Windows 7-native drivers for this printer and/or enlighten me as to how to enable duplex printing under Windows 7?

Thanks...just trying to save a few trees if I can

In the Dell printer 2130cn properties; Option tab, make sure you have selected the "Duplexer" as available. Once available, you will be able to select it in the preferences menu.
