Note: Windows 7 users - The drivers and applications on the Setup CD-ROM were written before the release of Windows 7 and are not compatible. Please download and install the appropriate Windows 7 driver and applications from our Web site.

The printer driver installation can be done using the prepackaged CD-ROM Easy Install and Custom Install methods. Easy Install allows all the necessary software programs to be installed easily and overwrites older versions of the printer driver, on-screen manual, and other application software.

*The directions for Easy Installation follow.
