  • Guess who's New Epson 3000 isn't comp. with Xp???

    Epson 3000 isn't comp. with Xp. You can use the Win2000 driver and settle for 1440 dpi, or use the OEM plug and play, for 720dpi. YUCK!!!!!!!!!

    "Settle"? The specifications list the 3000 as a 1440 x 720 dpi printer. The Epson website also says XP has built-in support for the 3000.

    Either way you should be able to get the maximum resolution the 3000 allows. Let us know how it goes. The 3000 was a good printer.

      Why would they do that? It doesn't make sense since they would loose a huge chunk of the market since XP is the newest Windows version out. Interesting thread and one I will follow for sure.

        Using WIN 2000NT driver

        Since Xp was built on the 2000 platform they say the driver will work. I've tried, and untried, and retried to get some decent prints and I'm having no luck with all the different papers, and settings. I get better prints on my 785EPX than I do on my Epson. Does this make sense to anyone??? If you've got an idea to help me, then please email me personally....

          Well, photos will always look better on a 785EPX. The 3000 isn't a photo printer. It's designed for graphics comping. Epson's printers designed for photo printing have "photo" in their name. Granted, the 3000 prints look great, but not when compared side-by-side to photo printer output.

            Windows XP and Epson 1270
            by George
            I experienced a lot of problems trying to get my Epson 1270 to work correctly when printing from Photoshop. When I connected the printer XP found a 1270 printer driver and set it up to use that driver. I ended up with a very strange print control panel and was unable to get the 1270 to print like I...

            by charles
            Dear Sirs and Ma'ams
            Briefly, what are your experiences with XP and Epson printers in particular the 890. My new notebook runs XP and my new printer (which works fine on my home system) will not work on it, it prints just an inch or so of a photograph and then just stops, spits out the paper...
