To Any & All of you that need a driver for any
Epson Printer ( I currently have 2 RX580's -1 with refillables & 1 with a CISS and I have had a CX, a WorkForce, an Artisan & 2 NX's in the past) just go to their website and download the drivers.
Here's the link for the Windows 7 driver page ( you can also get Drivers for Windows XP there) and the Epson Link should detect your Operating System on its own:
Just click it & follow the simple directions. Once you get the Driver, then download any utilities that they may have for your All-In-One Printer, like = Easy Print, PrintCD, etc. etc.
You should choose the 1st option they give you as it usually is all inclusive and normally is the same thing you would get if you had the original disk in your hand. But after you download it then check the "Utilities" Tab and see if there is any extra's for your particular model.
It should also be noted that for just basic printing, Windows 7 will provide you with a driver for your printer by just going and hooking up the printer to your computer and letting Windows Update find them for you.
Here's How To Do That:
Printer drivers for most models (and not just Epson) are included in the Windows 7 operating system. Follow the instructions below to install the Windows 7 printer and scanner drivers.
For All Versions of:
- Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
- Connect your Printer to your Computer, Plug in your Printer and turn it on.
- Click (or go to your Control Panel) and select Devices and Printers.
- Select Add a printer.
- Select Add a local printer or Add a network, wireless or Bluetooth printer. Mine choice was " Local Printer".
- Choose your printer port.
- Click Windows Update and wait for the printer list to update. The update may take a few minutes.
- Select EPSON as the Manufacturer, then scroll through the list of Printers and select your product. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the printer driver installation.
Note: Your product may also have an available scanner driver that is built into Windows 7 known as WIA.
32-bit, Windows 7
I hope this helps some of you out as I know it's sometimes hard to hang on to those Disc ( or maybe you got the printer used and it didn't come with one....). If anybody needs any additional help just drop me a line and I'll see what I can do for you.
(My Experience Level....I built my 1st computer in 1998 with 13 bags of parts and a beige box for $300 and it was a beast back in the day.....) now @ 200 + Builds, plus when I was in College in 1984 I use to write FORTRAN & BASIC programs with a TRS80 that had a real pretty GREEN SCREEN.....lol
I hope this helps
