I assume the device you mentioned is an all in one printer/scanner, which will scan and print on its own as they do

The PC has to know that a scanner and a printer are connected. To do this you need to run the CD that came with the printer/scanner thus installing printer and scanner to the the PC- Then you need a program to run the scanner from the PC. Like as not there is a basic one included on the installation CD- alternatively you need a graphics editor- look for a free one or purchase Photoshop Elements or go to the Serif website for a free version on one of theirs.

This for Windows 7 but the same principle should apply for other OS's Epson support
