Printer driver converter

  1. I have a epson action laser plus and the only drivers available are for a mac. Is there a convertor or/and software to make it work on a windows xp system from the mac drivers. I got the printer to work off of a old pentium III 800 w/98se software years ago. But it only print documents, etc. no internet printing.

    no, there is no graceful way to convert. your best bet is to use a driver model comparable to the model that you have. you may experience problems similar to the ones you are listing now. (ie limited printing capabilities, no advanced functions, inaccurate printing.)

    when trying to use the built in drivers on xp I get a warning message about damaging windows xp installation or something like that.

    which driver are you using. the likelyhood that you will damage your installation is so low i wouldnt worry. was it a message about unsigned drivers
