Epson R300 printer

Since started using Vista I realized that there is huge problems with the drivers for any new hardware you install on your system. Since last week I am trying to get my Epson R300 printer work with Vista Home Premium laptop but yet unsuccessful. Whenever I try to install the same it says drivers missing.

Somebody please help me installing the printer on my Vista. Thank you.

Re: Epson R300 printer

Did you tried checking Epsonís official page for the drivers ? I can all drivers available for download right on their websites official product page. Even 64 bit is available. Just open this URL http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...Type=Downloads, select operating system from the drop down menu and download the drivers. Let me know if you face any problem.

R300 will not print in vista: HURRAH! workaround

Though this thread looks too old, I would like to ask TaTu whether you were able to solve your problem or not. I was facing the same on my Vista and here is how I managed to fix it. I found drivers for Epson R220 for Vista SP1 32bit OS, and simply installed it on my Vista where I need to run Epson R300. There was no problem with the driver installation neither with the test prints. I just got a warning saying Wrong Device but we just need to ignore it and everything works fine.

Re: Epson R300 printer

Well thank for sharing the trick HelpfulNick but are you sure it works on 64bit Vista system ? I donít think because I just did what you said but getting the problem during the drivers installation itself.

I think that trick works only with 32bit computers and not with the 64bit. Need to find out something else.

I dont know what else you guys need to find out. Drivers are already available for both 32bit and 64bit Vista operating systems right on the Epsonís page here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/s...s&platform=All . why donít you just there and download ?
