    Is my scanner/printer just too old?


    The device in question is a scanner/printer by Epson, the Stylus NX415. I bought it in March, 2010 and originally used it on my Win 7 laptop. I just bought a tower with Win 10 on it and am in dire need of a driver. I've already scoured Epson's site, but they have everything except drivers. I see links to driver download sites on Google, but I don't want to infect my new computer with malware from some dodgy site.

    Is there anywhere reputable that a driver for my trusty old printer/scanner can be obtained for Win 10, or am I SOL?

    Thank you.

    You should only download drivers from the manufacturers support/download drivers site. Here is the Windows 10 64bit driver for your model.

    I've been all over that page. They don't offer driver downloads as far as I can see. All they do is tell you to update older drivers already installed. The last drivers I had were for Win 7, so I doubt they'll work on a 10.

    Thank you.

    The link in post # 2 takes you directly to the download link for the printer?

    No. Just to a FAQ page. Unless I'm missing something, there's no download link on that page.
