Ugrade Problems

  diogenes 19:58 10 Sep 2005

I have recently upgraded fron ME to XP. I seem to have lost the follwing:

1. Status Monitor for Epson 680 printer - the drivers seem OK and the printer works.

2. Scangear for my Canon scanner. To scan and save a document I have to create a word document and then use the insert tab. I no longer have the use of the OCR application that came with the scanner.

Is there return to the way things were before the upgrade?

As usual, many thanks foryour help.

system restore? re install printer and scanner?

XP as loaded a 680 driver, I have the same printer. If you cannot choose the printer from list when Printing reload the CD driver and set printer to default printer

then reinstall. Disconnect both printer & Scanner until reinstalling them.

I would download the newer drivers from the manufacturers Website.

The Printer is a little more comlicated to install as you may end up with duplicate drivers something which Epson & WinXP is good at.

The Status Monitor itself for that printer may not install but similar cna be found in the Printer settings from control panel.
