SSC Problem with Epson 830u

  oldal 17:38 01 Sep 2005

System is Win98se with Epson 830u printer connected via USB. I installed SSC but it hung trying to access status from printer, uninstalled SSC but I am now left with two unwanted usb ports.EPUSB1(unknown local port) EPUSB1(usb port not connected). If I try to delete these ports it fails saying there is a printer attached. (Ctrl pnl/Printers/Properties/details).I cannot install the Epson driver as it wants EPUSB1. Anyone have any ideas ?

Not Familiar with Epson 830u is this different to the R series now current.

Is it USB or Parallel in use.

Assume its different to current R series as it is a couple of years old. 830u only has USB interface

Unplug printer from USB port.

Uninstall ALL Epsom printer software.

Uninstall USB drivers.

Reboot, reinstall USB port drivers and then epsom software before plugging in the printer.
