Selected FAQ

When I try to install the software in Windows XP, I see a message telling me that the file E_DMAI18.DLL is needed. What should I do?
One of the software files may be corrupt. Follow these steps to correct the problem:

  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the printer.

  2. Click Start and select My Computer.

    If you don’t see My Computer in the Start menu, double-click My Computer on your computer’s desktop.

  4. Double-click Program Files.

  5. Double-click EPSON.

  7. Delete the SPR2400 folder.

    If you see a Confirm File Delete window, click Yes to All.

  8. Reinstall the software using either the CD or the file you downloaded.

    If you reinstall using the CD and it still doesn’t work, repeat this procedure from step 1 but try reinstalling with the downloaded file instead.
