Have just installed OS10.4 and nowfind that my mac cannot find my Epson R800 printer which was working perfectly on OS10.3 on both firewire and USB. It now tells me there it cannot find the printer and when I check in the print monitor I can see the printer in USB but not in Firewire.

When trying to print in USB I get the same problem.. The USB works perfectly on my PC laptop.

I have downloaded the latest drivers from the Epson site and reinstalled the printer drivers from the apple disc but still no joy. Can anyone shed some light and helop get my printer working.

Thanks

Have you tried anything else in that Firewire port?

Thanks for the reply. The firewire port is operating ok as I have an external firewire HD and it is operating fine. I have disconnected the HD and connected the printer directly to the firewire (bypassing the firewire daisy chain) and still no joy. The USB port is not printing either yet the USB prints perfectly on a PC laptop.

The driver should be in your system somewhere (see this Apple webpage, Mac OS X Tiger included Epson drivers).

Did you try adding it to your printer list? Check this Apple webpage out Printing & Faxing.

If those troubleshooting tricks don't bring any results, you might want to download Gutenprint.

I had a similar problem with the 4800 I have. I had to delete everything that was Epson and do a clean install of the drivers. That worked for me. Also repaired permissions after the cleaning.
