Question about HP Photosmart 2575 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Be really awesome and have several printers
Posted on Jun 17, 2007
Ok depending on how you have installed it, normally the software/installation cd has to be installed first, so remove the printer and start again, the .inf file it is looking for is the driver file, but the cdrom should firstly set this up when installed, only then the printer can be attached. If you have to connect the printer first, then you will have to force windows to look in the cdrom drive for the files to install the driver as it may be looking in 'C' where windows is installed instead. The usb hub you have will probably be a usb1.1, but your printer will prefer usb2, so try it in other usb ports, that you haven't got the hub connected into, remove any other hardware that is connected to your usb ports at rear of pc and connect them to the hub instead, as one of the used ports may be usb2. Having said that your printer does not have to have usb2.0 to function, using the usb1.1data rate is just slower than usb2.0

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. 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'.
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, 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. Repeat this until all EPSON INF files are removed.
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.
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 WinXP_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.
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.
