R3000 drivers/firmware version mimatch (EU vs US)
Dec 18, 2012

Hello,

My R3000 is an EU model, my PC OS is Win 7 64 US (because I prefer the US version).

In the Epson EU(UK) site I found the latest drivers v6.74:

http://www.epson.co.uk/gb/en/viewcon/corporatesite/products/mainunits/driver/8891/23/375425

Which I have want to install (currently runnig v6.73).

Not pleased regarding the Paper Media names difference mismatch between US and EU drivers I decided to look for the US drivers one, but surprisingly the latest available US version is still an old v6.71:

and this is disappointing.

In addition I wonder regarding the firmware versions mismatch (reversed this time)

EU (old): FW rev. AS27B4:

http://www.epson.co.uk/gb/en/viewcon/corporatesite/products/mainunits/driver/8891/23/328165

US (newer): FW rev. FR11C5 (with AS27B4 listed as previous one)

http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=173163&prodoid=63090295&infoType=Downloads&detected=yes&platform=OSF_W_7-64

Not to mention that I currently miss the Epson Hot Press Bright profile in the Media Type list of the driver, the EU ICC download (named "SPR3000 Hot Press Bright.icc" is only an .icc file to be installed in the usual spool/driver/color folder.

I then tried the US .icc installer and found a different profile (named "SPR3000 HPB MK v1.icc") placed in the above folder but still no dedicated entry in the Media Type driver list. (?)

Can someone enlighten me on this confusion?

Grazie,

Ciao
