Windows 7: Kyocera FS-680 printer driver

Kyocera FS-680 printer driver

First post here.
There is no Windows 7 driver for my old but very reliable Kyocera FS-680 printer.
I saw a post on a German forum that said I could use a Vista driver 'and say a prayer it'll work' but I'm reluctant to try that.
Am I stuck with buying a new printer?
Is there anyone out there with a solution to this?
Thanks,
ian in hamburg

Hi Ian, Vista drivers will in most cases work for Windows 7. Whoever states otherwise doesn't know much. Try this driver, Kyocera FS-680 KX driver v.4.4.0403 download for Windows Vista

From someone who doesn't know much either - Thanks! I'll give it a shot and let you know how it went.

Use FS-820 driver

I just use the FS-820 driver that is already part of Win-7.
Works perfectly well.

Worked for me (at least to get the Windows printer test page out looking ok). I couldn't find the FS-680 drivers in Legacy Drivers section on the Kyocera site... annoying.
