I have downloaded the driver for it r80999 it recognized a new device when I plugged it in but could not find the software for it. I have windows xp professional and I am using a USB port to connect it.

Thanks for any help.

Could it be 720 instead of 270?

See info in link below on how to install drivers.

Did a CD come with the printer?
