Epson XP-225 scanner not recognised by laptop.

I just bought an Epson all-in-one printer scanner XP-225. After a few problems I have the printer working, but when I try to use the scanner via USB cable from my Toshiba laptop I just get a popup box saying "Cannot communicate with the scanner. Make sure the scanner is on, correctly setup and connected with no errors indicated". As far as I am aware all those conditions are met and are ok. I have tried using a different USB cable, and using different USB ports.

All the sellers say its so easy to set up. On mine the wifi refuses to set up, and as for connecting via usb cables-printer recognition is the problem. Be thankful, at least you got it to print. God knows when I'll get my head round this problem
