We were given an Epson Stylus Color 777 printer, Model P230. 

Need to know if a driver is available for this printer compatible with
Mac OS 10.4.7 ?  (iBook)

No time to research; busy packing.  Need to know if we should pack the
printer or not.

thanks much!

hi tisme-ga,

yes, quick enough. actually not loading things up until tomorrow, but
there's way too much to do tonight.

I'll offer a tip to triple this fee if you can now tell me what type
of cord we need to order, description and even a link to the very item
if possible!   This would be the cord from printer to computer; it's

thanks for your time!

Hello timespacette-ga,

You can order your cable from the list of cables on this site (USB only):

The cable you need is a USB 4 pin Type A (M) to 4 pin Type B (M)
cable. Also known as a A/B Type USB cable.

The cheapest cables I was able to find are on this website: although
shipping depends on where you are located.

You could also go into a local store and ask for a type a to type b
usb cable. You will be paying retail, but will not have to pay
shipping so it will even out.

Note: Don't by a parallel cable because that will not work on your
mac. It works only with PCs even though it is listed as a cable for
your printer.

Good luck on the move!
