    I have a Dell Inspiron 1510 running Vista Home Edition. I have an Epson Stylus CX6600 Printer. I have downloaded and installed the drivers from Espon for Vista. I get the same USB2.0 MFP(Hi-Speed) can't find dirver problem the previous person described. I have installed and uninstalled the printer numerous times. I have installed all the USB drivers for my computer from the Dell Site. When the printer is installed the computer doesn't see it. It seems to me the problem is with Vista. On laptops that use XP I have no problem installing the printer.

Hi french22, when ever you get an error message like the one you have. Run windows update. After windows update opens choose the Custom button. It's windows that provides USB drivers. If your using Vista my suggestions may not help but you have nothing to loose.
Windows scans your notebook. (Which is a good thing).
Un-install the printer software you have listed from control panel.
Hook your printer up completely but leave the power button on the printer to off. Than during a restart enter your notebooks bios. I think pressing either the F12 or F10 key will load the bios for a notebook. Find plug and play OS & change it from Yes to No.
This keeps windows from assigning IRQ's to your hardware devices. Windows makes too many mistakes from time to time.
I looked everywhere for your Epson Stylus dx8450, (US) & could not find it. Had to go to Epson Europe. arrrrrrrg! I picked Vista for the driver page below.

If I picked wrong than go to this link & fill in the 3 windows.

Lastly if you could not find Epson software in the control panel Add/Remove programs than use windows search & find Epson & delete it. Also remove Epson Stylus dx8450 from the regestry.
Click strart, run & type in the run window regedit click ok.
Click Edit, find & type in Epson Stylus dx8450 & delete it. Close all opened windows & restart the notebook.
Load either your cdrom or download the driver from the net & try again to install the software. Out of info. God I hate Vista. You may end up talking with tech support for your notebook.
The problem is not you.

Have a great weekend!
Mike

My pc doesn't reconize my epson c43sx printer, s.o. windows vista


No. Sorry. If the printer was made  before VISTA came out and the printer model was discontinued it is very unlikely that a VISTA driver wil every be written for it . No one else is going to write a Driver for someone elses product either. That would be the software that you are asking about. Printers are cheap compaired to the ink costs.

Epson DX8450 All-In-One


Uninstall the printer using the Control Panel. Reboot the computer. Make sure the printer is connected but switched OFF. Restart the computer and when Windows is up and running, insert the printer installation CD. When instructed, turn on the printer. Everything should now be OK. If it isn't, take the printer to the Epson Express centre and ask them to check it. If it's faulty you need to decide whether to get it repaired or dump it and get a new one - check the rel;ative costs carefully. If it's OK, then you need to get your coputer looked at.

If you require further help on this, please post a new comment.

Dear sir,

Love to solve Epson printer products;) There's nothing wrong, what you are doing is correct you even tried to troubleshoot. You can even do the self test provided how to in your manual upon purchase. Well to start streaming down the problem; check the BIOS setup of your motherboard if USB ports have been enabled. Change and save the changes. Second. At windows environment check the "Port" properties at control panel system setting device manager if there are some errors or warnings. Install USB port installation update driver if necessary provided in your motherboard installation cd or you can removed or delete the errors and restart the computer, be sure you inserted the motherboard installation disk on CD ROM. The USB port devices shall be detected browse the CD and locate the USB driver. Hope this helps.

Best regards,
