First NEVER post your Email address on an open posting (you will get slammed).

Windows 7 may be able to support the adapter cable, but for the printer you would need the proper drivers. This will probably give you the most problem since I doubt that they would have written drivers for an old printer (how old). I googled it, and Epson does not show anything under that printer number as far as drivers go, and others list only windows95 through XP.... Too Old, Sorry. Some have had success installing drivers under XP compatibility, but I am not too sure about using that feature with drivers. (Others may have different opinions on this.)

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

Below is a link I found with information on that model.

The latest drivers are for WinXP.
