Question Epson 830 Drivers

Hi

I'd formatted my pc over the weekend. I went to install my printer this morning. What usually would happen, is as soon as I switch my printer on it would automatically search for drivers and install. Thats wasn't the case this morning. As soon as I switched the printer on my pc recongised new hardware, then I get the window asking to either search for drivers or if I have the disk and if so put it in the drive. On doing that that, I got a message saying my printer couldn't be installed, the drivers were not found in the NFT folder. Anybody have any ideas? As I said Vista usually just finds the drivers and installs. Any advice is much appreciated.

Thx

How about going to the manufacturers website and downloading the drivers, and installing them like that.

Hi

I've went to Epson's website, they don't have drivers for Vista and it comes wiith the operating system. As I'd said in my earlier post, as soon as I'd switch my printer on Vista would find and install the drivers. Any other ideas??

Well I reckon you would probably get more help in the Vista forum. I have never used Vista so not a strong point on my end

Hi

Do you know how to move this post to the Vista forum rather than the same post in both forums??

Thx

Ask a Moderator nicely to move it to the forum you want, I just asked Degsy to move it to the Vista forum though, But just remember it.

Look in the following folder on your hard drive:
C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

You should see a sub-folder for the printer, point it there to install.
