    I just updated my driver on my printer and some of the paper profiles I use are no longer there. After I download the ones I need, how do I get them to show up in my printer preferences options?
    Thank You

    Installing ICC Profiles for Epson Standard Proofing Paper
    To install these ICC profiles on your computer, you need to place them into the Operating System’s profiles location.

    The following table provides the location according to the OS:
    Operating System Location of ICC Profiles
    Windows 98 / ME Windows / System / Color
    Windows NT Winnt / System32 / Color
    Windows 2000 Winnt / System32 / Spool / Drivers / Color
    Windows XP / Vista Windows / System32 / Spool / Drivers / Color
    MAC OS 8 / 9 System Folder / ColorSync Profiles
    MAC OS 10.2 or later Libr

    Thanks Ruffin but what confuses me is- I have the profile I need in the system- Pro4800 PQIJP_MK. But why doesn't it show up in the media type drop down as it used to with the old driver?
    It used to show as "Photo Quality Inkjet Paper" as an option.
    Now I can only load it if I choose ICM and choose it in the input profile.
    But, does this override what's in the media type drop down? Because I can't load it there.

    Yes, choose it in "input Profile". Should you prefer original selection method, re-install original
    printer driver. Machine works well with either printer driver. Good luck. Epson Stylus Pro is a great machine.

    So is that a confirmation that choosing it in the input profile overrides what's in the media selection?
    Thanks

    Mr. Vanderloo:
    Only the software programmer would know. Can only surmise it would be so.
    Seems to me it would be prudent to give it a try. If satisfied, go with it. Perhaps this link will
    re-inforce our previous recommendation:

    https://epson.com/faq/SPT_C593001UCM~faq-298906

    Otherwise, recommend you uninstall and re-install with old driver. The latest driver is not always the greatest
    driver (more times than not). You might be better satisfied with the older version.
    Regards
