Setting Up the Printer If youve been using your EPSON printer with your computer, the printer is probably set up already. If so, turn it off and disconnect it from the computer. Then go to the section explaining how to connect the cable to your system.

If youre setting up a new printer, see the documentation that came with your printer for instructions on unpacking, installing ink cartridges, and loading paper. Then return to this booklet for instructions on connecting the cable and installing the USB printer software.

Getting Started on an iMac The instructions on the next few pages explain how to connect the USB/ Parallel Adapter cable to your iMac and how to install the printer software that came on the USB Printer Software CD-ROM.

IMPORTANT: You cant use the adapter with the printer driver software that came with your printer. You must use the USB/Parallel Adapter printer driver software.

To use the adapter with the iMac, you must download and install the iMac Update 1.0 from Apple at http://swupdates.info.apple.com before you install the USB printer software. Contact Apple Computer if you have problems installing this update.

For instructions on using the printer software, see the following:

If you have an EPSON Stylus COLOR 440 or EPSON Stylus COLOR 640, locate the electronic EPSON Stylus COLOR 440/640 Driver Software Guide for Macintosh in the Manual directory on your USB Printer Software CD-ROM. Copy the manual to your hard drive and view it using Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.01. (If you dont have Acrobat Reader on your computer, you can install it using the Acrobat Reader 3.01 Installer on your USB Printer Software CD-ROM.)

If you have any other supported printer, see the Users Guide that came with your printer.

Note: The USB/Parallel Adapter printer software is slightly different from the printer driver software documented in your Users Guide. First, there is no Status Monitor Utility for Windows. Second, the Monitor2 utility for Macintosh has been upgraded to Monitor3. (Some printers, such as the EPSON Stylus Photo 700 and EPSON Stylus COLOR 850, already use Monitor3.) For information on using Monitor3, see Appendix A in this guide.

Connecting the Cable You can connect the USB/Parallel Adapter directly to a USB port on your iMac or to a USB hub connected to a port on the iMac. If you have any printing problems when the printer is connected via a USB hub, try connecting the printer directly to the USB port on the iMac instead.

1 To connect the adapter to the USB port on the side of the iMac, first open the port door. Hold the adapters USB connector so the icon faces up and connect it to the available USB port.

If youre using a USB hub, plug it into the USB port on your iMac, then connect the adapter to an available USB port on the hub.
