Question about Epson Stylus Pro 9600 InkJet Printer
I just recently had to restore my computer with the original recovery disk for windows 98, I know it is old, but anyway when I origianlly installed the new printer I had no problems. I did everything right:
1- restored the printer as the default printer
2- reloaded with the cd followed instructions carefully
3- And it always say at the end can not find drive or printer is not plugged in
I can not setup my epson stylus cx3800 because i lose my disc

First thing I would recommend is download the driver from Epson so you know you have the latest version for your operating system. Second thing is to make sure you have the Windows 98 service pack installed that has USB support. The first version of Win 98 had NO USB support (if my failing memory serves me right)
Install the service pack and reboot a couple of times making sure you have removed any previous installations of your printer and it's associated files. Leave the printer off and no USB cable attached to the PC
Start the installation of the Epson driver with the printer OFF and no USB cable connected. When you get to the point that the install wizard tells you to ensure your printer is connected and powered on - connect the USB and switch on the printer.
If it still can't find the machine, complete the driver install with the option that you can specify the port at a later time. When done, right click the printer from the control panel/printers area and select Properties. Under Ports select USB01 or similar and apply the setting. Now under the General tab, try and print a test page. It may fail to do so. If it fails, reboot and try again.
This should see you on your way.

When you restore your system back to the new factory settings, it will wipe your hard drive clean and do a fresh install of the operating system with the original factory setting.
To start this process, unplug all extra devices from your computer
(printers, external hard drives, etc.) as these can interfere with the system restore.
Starting with Windows XP, most systems with issued a system recovery disk in case of any problems with the factory installation.
Check the documentation and disks that came with your computer to determine if you have one of these system disks.
If you do have a copy of this disk, place it in your CD/DVD drive and restart your computer.
If you do NOT have a copy of this disc, skip to step 3 for further instructions.
Once you restart your computer, a screen will appear with the words.
Press Any Key to Boot From CD. Once you press a key, a screen will come up containing instructions to format your hard drive and restore the original factory settings.
Follow the on-screen prompts to finish the installation.
Once the restore is complete, remove your Recovery CD from the disk drive so that your computer does not try to boot from the CD again.
Restart your computer to complete the restore.
3. If you do not have a System Restore disk, then your computer should have a recovery partition on your hard drive, separate from the main partition of the disk.
Unplug all external devices and restart your computer.
When the loading screen comes on with the Windows logo, press Alt+F10 together five times.
This will bring up the system restore menu.
Follow the on-screen prompts to restore your computer back to the factory settings
hope this helps
