It is behaving as if the printer driver is set to print to a file. Navigate
to the printer in your printer list. Right mouse Click on the printer name.
Select Properties from the context menu. Then Ports. Select the port the
printer uses-probably a USB port.

You need Vista drivers for your printer. I don't see your printer listed for
Vista compatibility here:

http://kmbs.konicaminolta.us/content...tasupport.html

Go to the Printers applet in Control Panel and Add Printer. If your Konica
is listed, use the drivers included with Vista. If it isn't listed, you can
try and install the XP drivers on your Vista machine. If neither of those
things works, then I'm sorry but your printer will not work with Vista and
you'll need to replace it with one that does.
