The printer driver installation can be done using the prepackaged CD-ROM Easy Install and Custom Install methods. Custom Install allows the user to select the software programs to be used and installs only the selected programs. This method is recommendable for users familiar with software installation.

  3. When the Custom Install window is displayed, deselect the programs not to be installed. Select 'Printer Driver' if needed, and click 'Next'.

    Note: In this example, only the Printer Driver is being installed.

  4. Click 'Yes' in the License Agreement window to start Custom Install. Clicking 'No' will prevent you from completing installation.

  5. The selected items will be installed.

  6. The Printer Connection window will be displayed. Connect the printer to the computer and turn on the printer.

  7. When the installation is completed, the Installation Results window will be displayed. Confirm the results, and click 'OK'.
