Computer cant detect the printer


Hello,
Go to C:/windows/inf and look for files called oemXX.inf oemXX.pnf.

Open the .inf files one by one and look for the EPSON label in them and when you find one just delete the .inf and .pnf file equivalent. There might be more than one EPSON files in the inf library.

Then unplug the printer, restart the computer, and the add wizard should pop again when you replug the printer.

Hope this helps.

Epson Printers - Slow Printing Under Vista & Windows 7


I had been trying to resolve a slow printing problem for months. The client had an Epson printer and a Windows 7 iCore duo computer that slowed down to and absolute crawl while printing photographs.
Nothing seemed to work. Not clearing the drives of temporary files, or updating the drivers.
Then I ran a program called Process Monitor. I kept seeing the SPLWOW64.exe spike the CPU usage to 100%. The file it was processing was an Epson file called EPAUDF01.AUD.
After updating the Progam used for printing to a 64 it version, SPLWOWO64 went to 34%, but the system was still taking three minutes for each step of the printing process, loading, selecting size and selecting orientation.
When I did a search online under the Epson file name, I found out that this file is a temporary audit file and should be removed.
"Epson printers create an audit file called EPAUDF01.AUD in C:\ProgramData\Epson\Printer."
Once the file was deleted, printing was fast again.
Each time the printer is used, this file is created, but, it doesn't slow down. Somehow the old audit file got stuck in this folder and gummed up the works.
If your Epson is printing slow, fimd this file and delete it.
I created a shortcut to the folder on the desktop "just in case".

  8. When you see the window containing the list of manufacturers, click Have Disk.
  9. Click Browse, navigate to the C:\Program Files\EPSON\PrinterDriverTemp\PMATEDX folder, and then double-click E_DF19TA.INF.
  10. Click OK.
  11. Click Next or Finish in each remaining window to complete the installation.

If you see a window asking if you want to replace the existing driver, select, 'Replace Existing Driver' before you click next.

Windows uses a foreign language information file when installing a printer driver via USB. This then installs the associated foreign printer driver and utility files.

This can be corrected with a full uninstall of the printer driver. The standard uninstall will not remove the original foreign language files. Please follow the steps below to install the English version of the printer driver:

Step One:
Switch off and disconnect the printer. Go to Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel, and remove EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE (this may be named in a foreign language like 'EPSON DRUCKER SOFTWARE' - when you are at this stage and have selected to 'change/remove' this item, a window will appear titled 'EPSON Printer Utility' - above the icons of each of your EPSON printers will be a 'Printer Model' tab and 'Utility' tab (Note, if there is no Utility Tab then just continue). Please click on one of the printers so it is highlighted, then select 'Utility' - please tick every box listed in the 'Utility' section and select 'OK'. Answer positively to all questions and once the uninstall is complete, you will need to follow the same procedure to remove the other EPSON printer drivers by clicking on 'EPSON PRINTER SOFTWARE' again and 'CHANGE/REMOVE'.

Step Two:
Open up Windows Explorer or My Computer, and navigate to the drive (usually C) where windows is installed. Browse to the folders called windows/inf on XP, or winnt/inf on 2000. If you can not locate the INF folder please go into the START MENU and select RUN. If there is any text within this box please remove and type C:\windows\inf and press enter. Please be advised that 'C' represents the hard drive on your PC. If your hard drive is a different letter please amend as necessary.

Find the files labelled OEMxx.inf or OEMxx, where xx is a number from 00, 01, 02 etc upwards. You will need to double click on each INF file in turn, and if it says “SEIKO EPSON” or “EPSON” within the first few lines, then you need to close the file, and then delete it. Please also can you delete the corresponding PNF. Repeat this until all EPSON INF files are removed.

Note: You cannot open a PNF file.

Step Three:
Staying in Explorer or My Computer, stay within the windows folder (winnt folder on 2000) and navigate to system32/spool/drivers, and go into the folder named "w32x86". Delete any folders that begin with "epson", and then restart. Once rebooted, empty the recycle bin, and attempt reinstallation of printer, using the instructions below.

Step Four:
MAKE SURE YOUR PRINTER IS STILL SWITCHED OFF AND DISCONNECTED AT THIS POINT. Insert your driver CD. Double Left Click on My Computer and select your CD drive by right clicking on the CD icon and select open. When you first open/browse the CD-Rom then you should see various folders. Please browse to the Common Folder. Within here select the Printer Driver Folder then choose the WinVISTA/XP_2k folder. Run the Setup.exe file and complete the installation as normal making sure you only connect the printer when requested to do so.

Step Five:
Once this has completed installing, please remove the CD from the CD drive and reboot the PC. The foreign language tabs will now appear in English.
