Epson Photo Rx620 Printer

I recently upgraded from vista premium 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit. My epson photo rx 620 printer worked fine on vista, but doesn't work on windows 7. When i run the printer troubleshooter it tries to download the drivers for this printer, but fails. I contacted epson and they say the printer is compatible with windows 7 and i should get the drivers from microsoft. The microsoft driver download site doesn't list the rx 620 in either the "compatible list" or the "incompatible list".

Every time i try to send microsoft an email, i get the page telling me i have to pay for their help. Does anyone know how i can get the proper drivers for my printer?

Epson Stylus Photo R340 Driver Problem

Ai dll error when trying to load epson sylus photo r340 driver from epson site. Epson says it is not their driver but a patch is needed from windows 7.

It started when i tried to install the mentioned driver for my printer - now i get the error message when trying to open office word and everything. Ai dll error message. It freezes the whole system and i can't remove the printer driver to try again - it just freezes everything.

Dell 720 Color Inkjet Printer Compatibility

Will the current 64 bit vista home premium sp1 printer driver for the dell 720 color inkjet printer work if the system is upgraded to windows 7 home premium 64 bit? Per dell website 720 printer compatible with windows 2000, xp, vista 32 bit only; vista 64 bit not listed & windows 7 (32 & 64 bit) is "not compatible". But the 64 bit vista printer driver must exist since 32 bit driver will not work in 64 bit vista, so i'm told, and a driver was installed during first time 720 printer installation.

First time install of 720 printer: after system boot, with internet access on, connected 720 via usb cable, vista hp sp1 64 bit detected printer then downloaded printer driver from internet.

I would expect (hope?) Windows 7 upgrade to use the existing vista printer driver since it does not have a driver of it's own to use. Maybe i'm wrong. Free windows 7 upgrade dvd due to arrive soon. Need to know if new printer should be in plans before upgrading.

Hp Inkjet 2230 Printer - Print Jobs Stuck In Print Queue

Print jobs stuck in the print queue and will not print on windows 7 64-bit driver for hp business inkjet 2230 printer. I have installed the current hp universal printing pcl 5 driver on my windows 7 64-bit os. When i try to print a test page on my hp business inkjet 2230 printer (usb to parallel cable connection) the job hangs in the print queue. I can run the troubleshooter and purge the spooler but then i'm back where i started. The next print command will result in the same error.

This appears to have also been a problem with windows vista (64-bit). Suggestions to remedy the problem are welcomed.

Epson Cx4600 Printer Will Not Work

Ms says epson cx4600 printer is win7 compatible with driver from epson. Epson says they have no intention of providing driver. I just purchased a pc with win7. Epson cx4600 printer will not work with win7.microsoft win7 compatibility chart indicates that the printer is compatible (proudly displaying the win7 compatibility logo) and provides a link to download a driver.

The link takes you to the epson site which states that no driver is available for the cx4600 printer. I emailed epson about the availability of a driver. Their response was that epson would not be providing a win7 driver. So any suggestions to make epson cx4600 work with win7?

Epson 1280 Printer Problem

I just upgraded from vista 32 to win 7 64 (clean install) with only a few problems (love win 7!)But i'll confine this post to one problem in particular:

I have two printers installed: hp laserjet 1020 and epson 1280 inkjet. I have creatacard installed in xp mode and it works fine. In the usb tab, i've left the printers in share mode (both show up, the hp is labeled with its full name, the epson is labeled with only "usb printer" - perhaps a clue to the problem?) I can print to the hp printer from creatacard but not to the epson printer. If i first start xp mode and take the "usb printer" out of share mode, then creatacard can print to it (one extra step).

Additional information: the epson printer does not show up on the "devices and printers" page and yet it does show up in the print dialog when printing a document directly from a win 7 application.

I have a creatacard icon on the win 7 desktop and it launches creatacard full screen just the way i want it to - and - it prints right out of the box to the hp printer with no intermediate action by me. I would like the same capability for the epson printer.

Question: what can i do to allow use of the epson printer in share mode for xp mode programs?

Ps, in system information - printer, the epson 1280 shows up on usb002 port and carried the right description, "epson stylus photo 1280 (m)". The hp laserjet shows up on port usb001. When i do attempt to print with the epson printer in share mode (labeled as "usb printer" in the usb dialog but corrected labeled as epson 1280 in the creatacard printer dialog box) i get an error message, "epson status monitor 3: communication error". To get rid of it i have to start task manager and stop the epson status monitor application.

Usb Epson Rx620 Printer Sharing

I've got w7 x86 installed with a usb epson rx620 working great. The pc i'm trying to share the printer with is vista ultimate x64. When i search the network for the printer, find it, select it, i get a message about "the server does not have the right driver".

So, i came here and i followed these really great, detailed steps to set up sharing to other pcs on my home network: http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/gettingreadyforwindows7/thread/88b53ce6-b613-4e05-8da3-00e40c2d612b

When i get to the part in these instructions that allows you to add additional drivers, the x86 are already present, the x64 are not. As expected. When i select to add the x64 drivers (presumably the ones that the vista x64 machine is requesting), i get prompted to select the location of the the driver. Hence the problem. Everything i can find on epson's site and ms sites say that "vista drivers get automatically downloaded and installed".

I can't find anywhere the driver to just download and then use. Can anyone suggest a work around for this?

Epson Stylus C60 Printer Driver Not Found

I have a shared printer (epson stylus c60) on a windows xp desktop. When trying to install the printer on a network laptop using windows 7, i get a driver not found on network message. There are no printer drivers available from epson. Their web site states that says to use the "built-in windows 7 driver". That driver does work on the laptop when the printer is connected to it directly. But when on the network, it comes up with an error message that says the "driver cannot be found on the network".

Epson R200 Printer - Custom Print Settings Save

How do i save custom print settings on epson r200 printer in windows 7? I recently purchased a new dell with windows 7, and i have an epson r200 printer. When i go to "advanced" print settings i do not see an option for saving them. For example, when using photoshop i want to save glossy photo paper type, photo print quality, etc. This is annoying because i need to reset them every time i want to print. I used to be able to save custom settings in windows xp.

Devices & Printers Empty

I have a working hp 1100 printer connected through a parallel port pci card on my new dell xps 8100. The card is showing as correctly installed in device manager. The printer doesn't show in devices & printers. There are several duplicate printers showing, for example, in office word  'print' caused by unplugging/plugging the printer. As the printer doesn't show in devices & printers, i can't set it as default, set sharing or delete the duplicates.

When i ran printer trouble shooter, it listed all the hp 1100 installs and did set the default and sharing for me on request. So, windows knows about the printer installs and can correct settings via the trouble shooter but devices & printers refuses to show them hence i cannot delete the duplicates. Are there any other ways to get at the printer installs until this problem is fixed by ms?

Upgrade To A New Empty Hard Drive

I have a pre order of windows 7 professional upgrade coming when released. I am getting my inspiron 8600 ready, 2 gb memory installed, and i have a new 160 gb hard drive to replace the 40 gb original drive. My plan was to install the new drive and install the upgrade using my original xp install disc from dell as a qualifier. It sounds like i cannot do this based on other threads. Can i install the dell original xp on the new hard drive (basic install) and go to the upgrade disk from there? I understand i will have to reinstall software and documents, etc. After.

Problem When Deleting Empty File

I have used universal extractor (ue) to extract an installer file (.exe) to my desktop folder. One of the files that the ue has created is an empty file with a blank name (also it doesn't have an extension) - this empty file is included in the installer file packet. When i view it in windows explorer, its full name is blank (i have unchecked the option 'hide extensions for known file types').

I try to delete it but i get a message 'an unexpected error is preventing the operation. Make a note of this error code, which might be useful if you get additional help to resolve this problem. Error 0x80070091: the directory is not empty. '.

I also try another method. Cut and paste that empty file to the recycle bin. And i get another message 'you need to provide administrator permission to delete this folder', i click continue button then another message appears 'you require permission from to make changes to this folder'. I have logged in with my administrator account - it is the only user account in my computer. These messages still appear after i try to run the windows explorer as an administrator and delete that file.

I restart my computer, enter safe mode, delete that file with two methods i mentioned above and still got those message. So i use system restore and windows backup to bring my computer to the time before that file was created but all of them don't have any effects.

That empty file make me confuse. I think maybe there are some problems with the file allocation table (fat), so this makes windows can create and display that empty file but cannot access to it (i also can't rename or add attribute to it) (?!). I have used chkdsk to check my disk but windows say it works well. So i still don't know how to delete that file.

Can you help me the solution for this problem?

Unable To Empty Recycle Bin

I have been having problems with deleting files that were auto recovery or compatible files from previous software versions that i have tried to delete from my computer (one is an autocad file and the other is an excel file). I can delete them from my documents folder and they end up in the recycle bin, however, when i try to empty my recycle bin it will attempt to delete them, but never accomplishes the task. I have allowed it to run for hours, with the message "deleting 1 item (4. 62 mb) from recycle bin. Discovered 0 items (0 bytes per second)".

I have also tried restoring them unsuccessfully. I have also tried deleting the files from the recycle bin instead of emptying it without any better results. Is there another way to empty the recycle bin or repair the issue that is causing the problem?

Folder Empty Backup And Restore

After recovering from a boot failure, after downloading a windows malware update, i made a new backup of all my documents using windows backup and restore wizard. Using the start button and then documents i browsed to the external drive holding the backup, found the backup folder, saw the list of document folders that matched the list on my main hard-drive but every folder i tried to open said "folder empty". The backup took 5 hours to complete and i received a screen saying backup successful, but where are the documents that were backed up?
