Hello,I have an epson R285 now installed.A friend of mine has got one the same and he wants me to have it as he is upgrading to the latest Kodak one.
Now the question is as I have already got one installed is it possible to install another printer the same so I would have two Epson R285 running is that possible.
Running windows xp pro.
Thanks.d.

Provided that you have a spare USB port to plug the other printer in I don't see any reason why you can't have two identical printers running at the same time.

Is it possible to rename one. If you see printers via control panel and right click you are offered a rename option.

If the Printer is connected and drivers installed as per Epson, it will rename it as R285 (2) same name but with a 2
