    Epson Stylus Photo 700

    I just cant get this damn thing to work, it will print text but the graphics are cut off when printing, ive tried the win 2k drivers with no luck, does anyone have an idea where i can get a Win XP Pro driver from or at least one that will work????

    it seems epson dont want to pay to develop a correct working driver for this model or older models, come on epson, why did i pay a couple hundred quid for a printer that isnt going to work again.


    Look forward to ur reply

    Peace

    Have you used the drivers built in to xp ?

    The reason I asked if I have seen one of these working with no problems using the xp default drivers.

    I just wondered if you should look elsewhere in xp for the source of the problem. :confused:

    found it, it seems xp dont like the microweave option, did a few print outs and it seems to be fine, could be a soloution for other epson drivers too, check it out.

    I use XP pro and my Epson photo 700 runs sweetly using the native XP drivers. But I no longer have bi-directional support and can't monitor my ink usage. Did think about downloading the Win2000 drivers just to restore this function, but if it ain't broke...
