Epson Stylus Photo 740 Printer Driver for XP

  PC Advice Sir 19:46 12 Feb 2004

I have an Epson Stylus Photo 740 printer, but there is no driver available for this printer for the XP OS even on their website, which is rather a shame.

Is it feasable to download and utilise a driver for another printer (the Epson 760) for instance, or should I look elsewhere?

It seems daft that a decent printer, however slightly dated, be redundant due to lack of a driver even from the vendor's website.

Are there win 2000 drivers on the Epson site if so try this,its a lot safer than trying a different models drivers,if it goes belly up just "roll back" the driver to the old one.Hope this helps.

I've been running an epson 740 on the drivers from Win xp Pro with no probs,the only thing i missed with these drivers was the monitor for ink levels.

Epson do stress having the drivers for their printers for the advantages they describe, yet this one is not available? Rather naughty and self contradictory of their own advice I would think.

I will follow your kind advice in pursuit of a solution, and report back with the results.

Thankks for your helpful responses.
