Question: Should I use Epson's drivers or the drivers provided from Microsoft with the Windows XP software?

Answer: If you use the Epson Windows 2000 or Windows 2000/XP drivers from the Epson Support web site you will receive all functions and features the printer offer. If you use the Microsoft Windows XP built-in driver, you will be able to print but you will not be able to use the following functions:

  • Ability to check your ink levels
  • Ability to print at 2880dpi (if your printer supports that resolution)
  • Advanced Color Management features
  • Advanced Page Layout features like watermarks, multi-page support, or doublesided printing (if your printer supports this feature)


If these features are important to you or your printer isn't automatically supported by Windows XP please download the latest Windows 2000 or Windows 2000/XP Driver from the Epson support website.

Question:What Epson printers are automatically supported in Microsoft's new Operating System, Windows XP?
