Windows 7 was released in 2009 before USB 3.0 became widespread in hardware in 2010.
This means there is no Microsoft USB 3.0 driver for use in Windows 7.
Because of this third party USB 3.0 drivers have been developed for Windows 7.
Epson printers are only tested in environments with Microsoft USB 3.0 and Microsoft USB 2.0 drivers but not third party USB drivers.
Use the following steps to determine whether your Windows/USB environment is supported:
Identify whether the PC has the following USB labels beside the connection port. The connection to the printer here will determine which corresponding driver that will be needed.

If the drive provider is Microsoft this indicates that the correct driver is being used. See example below:
Epson does not provide official support for 3rd party drivers and compatibility issues with JavaPOS have been reported when using 3rd party USB 3.0 drivers with Windows 7.
These compatibility issues may also affect Advanced Windows Driver (ADP) or OPOS.
If using Windows 7, ensure the hardware is USB 2.0 since Microsoft USB 2.0 drivers are supported by Epson printers.
