Windows XP and epson printer

  leadwellie 17:29 29 Oct 2003

I wish to upgrade from 98SE to XP professional,
the problem being that the epson printer I have is an Stylus colour 600 and I understand that there are no drivers for this printer that are compatible with XP. I also understand that while the printer my work with XP I will lose some of the funtionallity like ink levels head cleaning etc. Even windows 2000 driver is unlikely to help.
Can anyone out there help? I would like to avoid having to buy another printer if poss.
Many thanks.

Epson printers work fine with XP drivers,you only lose the use of seeing the ink levels,everything else works,cleaning,etc

I have the colour 880 and everything works fine on it on XP Pro,even the ink levels.It may be different to yours though.

I have the 600 also. It works fine on XP, the only thing missing are the ink levels, Head Cleaning etc works fine.

leadwellie are sure you have loaded "status monitor" which the part of the installation software? this is the part that shows ink usage etc.
