I will look for the POLAROID GL 10 printer drivers. Please tell me if you have Windows 8 installed on the computer where the drivers are already installed, or another Windows version is installed there?

Thanks,

Hello again!

See this web page:

http://www.polaroid.com.au/grey-label/gl10

Scroll to the bottom. You can download Windows drivers there, but the note says: "GL10 Software is not compatible with Windows 8"

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Tried. True: not compatible with Windows 8. I also tried the polaroid Zink app for the iphone but it doesn't recognize the printer

Hello!

Unfortunately, POLAROID GL 10 is not compatible with Apple devices such as iPhone, iPad and iPod. There's a note about that on the page I sent you as well. So, you can use this printer on computers with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 installed. This is an older printer model, so if you want to use it with newer Windows versions and Apple devices, you will need to get a new printer.

If there is anything else I can help you with, let me know.

IT Miro
