    Epson printer not found
    I have an Intel 24" I-Mac core2 and an EpsonStylus Photo R1800 printer connected by firewire. This printer has worked well for some years.
    I tried to get it to network with Airport Extreme so a MacBook Pro could print. Not successful, now the epson printer will not work and doing Print/Fax add printer will not show the printer as available to add. I have uninstalled the Epson software and reinstalled it from disk. This has not helped. I have run the hardware check from the installation disk - all ok.

    does anyone have ideas to try next?

    thank you, Terry

    Did you try to add it using More Printers and "Epson Firewire?"

    Yes, this was the first thing I did.
    The screen to add printer comes up, but the printer is not listed to add, just a blank screen when the default button is pressed.
    thank you, terry

    Not sure, but I think you missed my point.
    Don't use the default button - click More Printers and select "Epson Firewire."
