    EPSON 1400 Photo printer - Pro photo Printer A3

    Hi there

    If you use one of these there is a driver for it on the Epson site for Windows 8.1 but download THE DRIVER not the utility.

    When installing you need to watch the popup window very quickly and select MANUAL when it asks you to choose the port (USB connection). If you don't do this the popup will disappear and you'll get a message saying "Printer driver being installed - please wait" --and then nothing happens.

    So in the Manual port setup choose say USB0001 (Virtual printer port) or create one before running the driver installation.

    Then the printer works just fine (Hurrah -- Now another nail in W7's coffin before I can finally get rid of it !!).

    (BTW the Epson 1400 is a really excellent Printer - very fast and of course has individual cartridges -- it's really a PRO model - I don't do a huge amount of printing - but you still sometimes can't beat a beautifully printed A4 / A3 size print -- Mobile phone cameras are fine for what they do - but a real print once in a while is great).
