    Slightly off topic but can anyone help?

    I have an Epson PM 950C, this printer apparently is only available in Japan
    (where I bought it). My brother in the UK has a Stylus Photo 950 and
    comparing the ink cartridges I can't see any difference except the product
    numbers.
    My brother tried some of my Japanese cartridges in his Stylus but the
    printer refused to recognise the new cartridge. Is there any way to hack
    into the software to allow these cartridges to be used - the cartridges here
    in Japan cost around 1000 yen ($9) but in the UK they're often double the
    price.
