Win ME question

Epson Stylus Color 480 Inkjet Printer(URGENT!)

I recently bought a new Epson Stylus Color 480 Inkjet Printer(without checking for compatible OSs,ofcourse!).I have Win ME loaded on my machine,my question is - are there alternate drivers for ME,if not,what are my options?I have given it much thought and am thinking of changing my printer(what if this thing happens again,no support for XP),what do you guys think?Your insight will be most appreciated.

Thank You.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Manya again!
Here is the most updated Driver from the home page on Epson:

I did a search on your Printer home page at:

Good luck

Questions which are posted that remain inactive will be deleted, so please update your open items before they are deleted.  It is unfair to the experts who work to help our clients if no feedback and closures result.  Many of them have been updated with reminders, though still no response from you.

Thank you,

Thank you MANYA, see you tomorrow.

I forgot to respond to your other comment, sorry for the oversight.  You said:
 
"9 are unlocked and I intend to follow up soon,thanks for reminding me."

Within this Topic Area it is customary for experts to post comments rather than lock the Asker's question with proposed answers, especially if there are numerous possibilities.  This question is a perfect example because you said "what do you guys think?".  This is to your advantage, because your question remains open for other Experts to respond rather than moving it to a less frequented area.  

You will get what you need quickly and in excellent style if you stay active in all your open questions and respond to the recommendations made to the expert, and close/award them when the process is complete.  This also helps others who want to find this same help from our PAQ database.

For special handling requests, please post a zero point question here, with a link to the question involved.

If you wish to increase the point value, you may do that directly.

Hope I've answered everything.  If not, comment, I'll return.
