I have a 3000 as well, and I'm able to print to it, but maybe because 
it's hooked up to a 8600 via a network.

****BY the way - I bought some of the ink cartridges from LaserMonks for 
$8.90 EACH, and they work GREAT!!!! This is so much cheaper, I thought 
for sure they would be junk, but boy was I Surprised when they came in 
(they look the same) and print just fine - one hell of a savings that's 
for sure!

4 cartridges for LESS ($35.60) than the price for just 1 ($64.90) from 

You may have to use the Epson Print Driver, which IS different then the 
others, you'll also find it, in the Library folder on your hard drive 
NOT the one in the systems folder!
