In Virtual PC my new Epson R320 will not work?

It appears that VPC sees it as a "new mass storage device".....not a printer?......I can print with no problem on my old Epson 870......any ideas?.....I would like to use my new printer in VPC.

You really don't need the installation CD anyway.  The only thing you need is the serial number that was packaged with the disc.  Just download the trial version and install it.  Activate that with the serial number, and you're good to go.  You would have to download anyway in order to have the most recent version.

  • I upgraded from leopard to lion and my epson printer will not work. I get a communication error

    I upgraded from leopard to lion and my Epson printer will not work. I get a error message comunication error. What can Ido to fix this I bought a new USB cord and it did no good.

    I suddenly had the same thing happen. I've had my new iMac for 3 months and at first my Epson Artisan 50 worked okay then yesterday I started getting the same error message other people on this support site have gotten. I tried ALL the advice given (deleating the Epson files from the library folder, etc. reinstalling older software) and nothing worked. With the newest iMac (and operating system) you cannot pick and choose which version of Epson software you want. You must use the 10.8 version or it simply will not open when you've downloaded it. Finally I found the comment above by den.thed and tried the OS X Mountain Lion: Reset the printing system suggested. As much as I hated to lose all my printing presets that took a lot of expiermentation to set up, I was desperate. I tried it and it worked. Now I just have to consult my old computer and try to recreate all my printing set ups.  So to others with Epson / Apple 10.8 issues this may help when everything else fails. Thanks den.thed for your advice.

    Need to know your Mac model. If it's a PowerPC, the max OS is Leopard 10.5.x. If it's an Intel procesor, you can upgrade to Snow Leopard (for $29) & later to Lion.

  • Epson Printer will not work with Pagemaker 6.5

    I am having a problem with my Mac I run Jaguar 1.3X on it with OS9 which pagemaker runs under.
    I can print with every application and print information from the internet, but can not print my PageMaker files. Is there a fix out there for this or do I have to upgrade to a newer OS?
    I get an error like this everytime I try to print using Pagemaker 6.5
    *"Cannot access current printer"*
    *"Cannot access printer"*

    Some programs do not work as well under Classic as they do under native OS9 and you may be encountering this. Pagemaker may be having a hard time talking to the OSX generation of printer drivers. You can check [Gutenprint drivers|] for an alternate set of drivers, but I don't know much about them or Jaguar OS... I would not be over optimistic about getting a newer version of OSX to assist. What version of OS9 are you using for Classic? You could try changing that, especially if there is a newer version.

  • Upgraded from 10.2.8 to 10.3 now Epson CX6600 will not work

    Ok fellas (and ladies) here is the story. My mother finally got around to upgrading from 10.2.x to 10.3.0 (now, via online upgrades, 10.3.9 I believe, but the current problem stems from the initial upgrade) only this last week. When she upgraded, she was no longer able to print to her Epson CX6600. It was still present, so to speak, but her iMac (G4)would never connect (just that beautiful pinwheel). Now i am just a new convert to Mac so I have no idea how to fix this. We tried using the uninstall program provided by Epson's install program. When we did this, and then subsequently installed again, it told us everything was still installed. Furthermore, when we went to add the printer back into the printer setup utility, OS X recognized the printer but said the drivers were not present.
    The next thing we did was download the latest drivers. Would you believe the Printer Setup Utility still said no drivers present?
    So does anyone have any ideas? My mother called Epson, they say its Apple's problem (nice fellows over there at Epson). Before I suggest to my mother to plop down the $49 American to talk to someone on the phone about this, I thought I would get the scoop from the real experts.
    Thank you in advance for any time you put into this.

    Hi Again MnchstrCityBlues!
    At this point, the best I can do, is give you instructions, on how to uninstall & reinstall the printer. I know you have already done that, but perhaps you may have missed a file or two.
    I have an Epson C86, so some of the instructions may need to be modified for the CX6600.
    Change my references to C86 to CX6600.
    But the procedure should be the same.
    *Download the most current driver from
    * Before moving the folder & files listed below, to a "Temporary Epson Trash Folder", open "Printer Setup Utility" and delete the C86.
    * "Quit' "Printer Setup Utility"
    * Move the files (Posted in Capitals) to the "Temporary Epson Trash Folder" on the Desktop
    HD > Applications >
    HD > Users > Your Home > Library > Preferences >
    HD > Library > Printers >
    EPSON (Folder) Only move this folder if you have no other
    Epson products
    I also had a "OS X booklet.pdf" (Epson) that I had saved in my "Documents" folder. You will get a new one. After the installation, I replaced it. You may not have saved your original one. It's no big deal, there's really not much in it, In fact I don't remember ever opening it, before today!
    * Quit ALL running Applications
    * "Repair Permissions" using "Disk Utility" in the "Utilities" folder
    * Dig out your Epson C86 "Start Here" instruction quick sheet, for reference
    * Unplug the USB cable from the Mac & then the C86
    * Re-attach the USB cable to the C86 & then the Mac
    * Turn on your C86
    * Double click on: "epson11518.sea.hqx" to unzip (This is the downloaded driver)
    * Double click on: "epson11518.sea" to expand
    * Follow the prompts & instructions
    * When the "Vise" installer opens in a window, double click it to start the install
    * When the installation is complete, turn off the printer & restart your Mac.
    * "Repair Permisions" again
    * Turn on the C86
    * Open "Printer Setup Utility"
    * "You have no printers available" will appear. Click "Add"
    * Select "Epson USB" in the contextual menu
    * Click on "Stylus C86" to highlight
    * Add "Page Setup:" select "All", from the contextual menu
    * Click "Add"
    * Quit "Printer Setup Utility"
    The images below, that are left on the "Desktop", can be trashed, unless you prefer to keep the installer.
    You should be good to go!
    Good Luck!

  • New Laptop - itunes will not work

    I had itunes installed on my old laptop and it worked fine with my ipod touch ( 2.2.1). Now I have a new laptop, have installed itunes and every time i connect my ipod touch i get the message saying "itune has stopped working - windows is searching for a solution". The solution never comes. Do I have to uninstall itunes from the old laptop or deactivate that account or something in order to use my itunes account ( and all that is contained within it) on this new laptop? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks

    It all depends on exactly how you moved the library from your old computer.
    Select a track with an exclamation mark, use Ctrl-I to get info, then cancel when asked to try to locate the track. Look on the summary tab for the location that iTunes thinks the file should be. Now take a look around your hard drive(s). Hopefully you can locate the track in question. If a section of your library has simply been moved, or a drive letter has changed, it should be possible to reverse the actions.
    Alternatively, as long as you can find a location holding the missing files, then you should be able to use my FindTracks script to reconnect them to iTunes .

  • Update from 10.3.9 to new 10.5 will not work.

    trying to update my G4 iMac 2003 with panther 10.3.9 OS. I put my new leopard OS X disc into the drive and read everything i need to on the disc. I press the install button, then the restart button on the instalation window. The system reboots and stays on a grey screen with the color waiting wheel for hours and hours on end. There is no end to the waiting. After a good few hours of waiting, i decide to quit. Do i need to buy tiger OS X because my panther OS is too old to update all the way to 10.5? Or, is my iMac not compatible with the new 10.5 Leopard OS X? Is Mac trying to scam me into buying a newer system?

  • Updated airport utility will not work on older Airport Extreme

    I have a mid-2011 Macbook Air with OS 10.9.4. So that's up-to-date. I recently updated my Airport Utility to version 6.2. I have an old Airport Extreme. The new Airport utility will not work with the old Airport Extreme. Apple will not let me download the older Airport Utility, because I have a newer one installed: classic Catch-22. Any ideas? I need to find out my SSID to connect with a new Denon AVR receiver. Is there any way to find out my SSID with Airport Utility?

    You must first uninstall AU 6.2 before you can install an older version. This may be removed by the mods so get it while you can:

  • After upgrading to maverick my epson WF-2540 scanner will not work. There are no upgrades showing so what do I do?

    After I upgraded to Maverick my Epson WF-2504 scanner will not work.  There is no software update showing necessary either. I have gone to the Epson website but it doesn't offer a download.  It tells me to go to "software update" ???  Any suggestions?

    Thanks Arthur,
    I was hoping for a good bubble bursting, but I tried that HP "update" as soon as my printer stopped responding. I really really wanted my bubble popped.
    One needs the Apple supplied driver for this work. It will not work because the driver to basically function on the updated Mavericks is not supplied by Apple Updates, so the HP driver that stops printing an extra page is rendered useless. I spent, wasted two days going back and forth between Support threads, HP chat and on the phone, through all the Mac channels where I was told that the 2011 HP was antique. HP said Apple had the drivers. So, they pointed a finger at one another with this unlucky customer caught in the crossfire. HP said Mac did it and Mac said HP did it. BOOM ! goes the guy in between who spent a good bit of money to have good equipment. What is wrong with expecting a printer to last beyond 3 years, or for a back up drive to last more than 3 years?
    I do appreciate the attempt to help though. It was here in Discussions where I was guided to the gimp driver, drivers which in the past always worked when needed but in this case something wicked about Mavericks prevents it from working. No matter how many times HP says it works on their site all you have to do is try and then speak with customer service to find out that in a parellel universe this may logically hold. It does not hold here.  If it were the case that by working in Lion it would work in Mavericks then there must be something wrong with me. But why, APPLE, is it that one day it works, do the update and then it does not when Lion was the previous OS? I did Everything, every single thing recommended by people who had good ideas and wanted to help but all too often the facts tell us nothing of the world. Facts are tools used to decieve, the world is where it works or does not work and in this case Mavericks has cost me close to $300. Probably not a big deal in some cases, but money is money. When it is gone it is gone.
    I followed the complete uninstall, going into library and removing all HP, then restarting and lo and behold HP driver for 4500 not only was not present but along the way my 500gig back up drive died, as in dead, nothing.
    Of course I will not buy another HP product. If you go to the list of drivers Mac says it carries the HP Officejet 4500 wireless may be present but is not carried by Apple. I have tried Apple update over and over. What I have done is wasted my time and money. In one fell update I lost a printer and a back up drive. No storms, no loss of electricity, no boogie men lurking, no malware, no gremlins, nothing but an innocent customer updating when Apple said "update". Sure it is serendipity that both my printer and back up drive died on the same day at the same time following the Mavericks update. Who am I but a loyal customer? I must be stupid because my equipment stopped responding after the update. It is not new that there are bugs and glitches following updates. I was a beta tester for OS X, it wiped my computer clean, but I understood, it was beta.
    A friend told me the same about planned obsolescence in that since printers are cheap and ink is expensive they don't really care about customer satisfaction. Three years old is antique, out of date. We should and must all be angered by this hatred for the customer shown by manufacturers across the board. Blaming the customer is ridiculous and absurd but not unheard of, in fact it has become the rule of thumb from the other side. The customer is innocent. All we want is to buy premium equipment and to have it behave in a manner befitting the cost. I am an Apple user since 1994. I designed a restaurant on a 333 mhz black and white Mac. You know, the big floppy disc one. I am not new to Apple. Fiercely loyal for 20 years. This is the most angered I have been by the flippant attitude shown to us all.
    Thank you for giving the links and hopeful advice. I tried them all when I first had the troubles. The good people in discussions, not the Apple plants, but the users, tried their best. I thought that by coming back later there would be updates and new links that would help. But no. Maybe one day. HP lost a customer, it means nothing to any of the manufacturers when a customer is ridiculed by their cynical attitude towards the customer. Maybe there will be someone else to come along here that has had similar experiences and found a way to fix. Used to be a gimp driver could do the trick. Used to be a way. I fear we lose control of our equipment more and more every day. This is not a rant. It is a somewhat sad expression of having been ripped off. Discussions here have helped in the past but the more things advance the less we matter. And as in the past when I was mad about an Apple failure a member sent a fix and I printed the fix for others to use in return. We help one another in the best of ways. Please spread the word, maybe there will be a fix to show up here sometime. I kissed my iOmega back up drive and the 500 gigs of writings, photos, backups and music goodbye, gone forever, poof! But the HP printer is still here on my desk. I don't want to give up hope.

  • HT1338 my Epson R3000 will not load printer paper

    Hi, my Epson R3000 will not load printing paper and say's there is communication error, has  any one had this problem? , thanks

    Yes, 90% of the time I try to print something I get that error, and have been gettign that error for years, since the days of OS X Leopard. I have been pausing/resuming each printer to get it to start transferring files again, or, sometimes it won't work and I have to go through the wifi setup again, or unplug cat5 cable and plug it back in, or power cycle the printer if on USB.
    I contacted Epson, and as you most likely know, they have no qualified personnel. They got me throuhg the obvious steps like removing the drivers, re-installing them (I actually did a find / -name "*epson*" and removed everything I found), rebooting the router (poor thing has nothing to do with it, it's working fine otherwise), swapping cat5 cables, usb cables.
    I have 3 of these R3000 printers and they all exhibit the same issues. All of my other printers connected to the same computer/router/wifi do not exhibit this issue. I have Artisan 50 (usb), the 1400 (usb), and 3 Artisan 835s (wifi).
    The things I hate most about  Epson and its printers are the following:
    - they come with 0 support form Epson. If you know what find . -name is, you're already more qualified than any CS rep that's going to answer
    - their drivers get updates very slowly for the OS X platform at least
    - only some older printers will how you # printed pages/ # pages remaining. The R3000 for example shows "spooling job, 3% complete". Very informative.
    - the printer driver for the R3000 creates some kind of proxy files that are HUGE in size, and it's done every time, for each page. It effectively takes 10 minutes to start printing 60 copies of 300DPI letter size photoshop designed files. The printer definitely doesn't have 5GB of RAM or temporary space to hold all that, so why not START FREAKING PRINTING while that stuff goes on in the background for subsequent pages? And if it's the same exact graphic, why doesn't the computer just simply send the first generated proxy file 60 times in a row rather than create 60 different proxy files?
    - all Epson printers I've ever played with will stop printing mid page when it thinks it's out of ink. This determination is done in the chip of the cartridge in combination with the printer firmware, not by actual reading of the ink levels. I would much prefer that the printer would continue to print that page and stop after. Less wasted paper, and the cartridges I throw out ALWAYS have enough ink in them to finish printing one silly page.
    - print quality doesn't change until you spend $500 or more on a printer (print heads are virtually the same type/size on all of Artisan printers for example), ignoring, of course, dye ink vs pigment ink
    - did I mention no qualified customer service personnel and complete disinterest in taking any customer feedback into consideration?
    In conclusion, I am very sorry to let you know that I have yet to find a solution to this, and Epson has been ignoring it for years. If you do bump into something worthwhile though, please post it here.
    Thank you!
