I am not sure why, when I connect the printer to USB2 port I get an error. I connected the printer to the USB3 port the printer was recognized. I guess too bad I have to sacrifice the USB3 port at the back of the PC, but as long as it works I have to deal with it. I am not sure if there is any other solution.
Well if you wanted to, you could install the driver provided by epson for windows 7 or windows 8 32bit-64bit and install it ?
Run the installation again and install the driver, run the .exe and compatibilty mode as the administrator always.
Choose compatibility mode windows 7 or windows 8 in the menu box.
That should be enough for it to jump start and work.

They said its compatible with 8.1 if thats not the case you may want to call technical support and find out what the problem is.
