I'll remember to separate my issues in the future. Thanks to you both. Kyphi, many moons ago, when I was a young man, I introduced bourbon...

My old 615 workforce finally gave up after several years. I ordered a new xp-330 Epson to replace. Chasing drivers began several weeks ago. Got th...

But that's seems to be the report. So you may want to try this revert back to th...
