problems with firmware upgrade

Can anybody explain me if it is possible to check drivers for errors?
This error is common just for Freebsd, because google returns result 
just for this os.

I am running a FreeBSD 6.0.
To get working my printer( HP LaserJet1000 usb - works on linux) I have 
to upgrade my firmware, but
when upgrading firmware

 # cat SIhp1000.dl > /dev/ulpt0
I get "cat: stdout: Input/output error"

Searched for days in google, but it appears that all
results leads to just Freebsd OS.
Do I have to switch OS just to make my printer work?
 #dmesg | grep ulpt
 ulpt0: Hewlett-Packard hp LaserJet 1000, rev
 1.10/1.20, addr 2, iclass 7/1
 ulpt0: using bi-directional mode

 # cat SIhp1000.dl > /dev/ulpt0
 cat: stdout: Input/output error

Maybe its issue with is with the ulpt driver ??
