Printer drivers You must install a printer driver so that the printer can process the data
from your application programs.
An original driver offers the best conditions for optimal printing resul-
ts. All available Windows printer drivers can be found on the CD-ROM
en-closed with the printer, and also from our Internet site, from which
you can download updated versions as required.
The use of any Windows printer driver from the CD-ROM requires
that the printer is set to Epson emulation (see Menu parameters,
page 59 and chapter Emulations, page 109).
