Attn: Fargo Ribbon Users – Wrong Ribbon Error?

May 31, 2011

This year Fargo has released another crop of Fargo ID badging printers.  Ribbons for some current models (M30, M30e, C30, C30e, DTC400 and DTC400e) have been replaced.  These newer ribbons are backwards compatible.  However, a printer firmware update is a requirement in order for them to work on your current models. 

The version needed is and can be downloaded here.  For instructions, view our complete tech update.

 Update Driver BEFORE Firmware

For Fargo users who get an error message when they attempt to update the firmware to accept the newer ribbons, be sure you have the latest printer driver before you upload the firmware.  It’s important that you CANCEL the firmware update and install the latest driver first.

Download the latest driver at Fargo Support.

Use the IDentiphoto Fargo Ribbon Cross Reference Sheet to learn your new Fargo ribbon part number.
