Cannot get my inkjet printer to work with Vista. I tried loading the drivers, including the Status monitor and the result was nothing - strangely UNLIKE other USB devices, the computer does not respond when I plug in the printer. All other USB devices have usually elicited a response from the computer but not with my USB printer. Naturally, I have uninstalled the drivers each time and then tried again. I have even tried 'Add new printer' but this eventually results in a 'try locating new device/port' or something to this effect, but nothing happens!
I should have looked closer at the webpage - there are no Vista drivers! The newest driver on the site for your printer is 2004 - looks like Epson can't be bothered updating for Vista. Could be time for a new printer!
I have just purchased a new laptop with Vista OS, and had the same trouble with my printer. I downloaded however the printer driver for XP (as there are no Vista drivers)off the epson website and it works fine.
So definitely try this as it worked for me.
