If you used the original driver software that came with your printer, it probably is not compatible with Snow Leopard. Go here: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?BV_UseBVCookie=yes&oid=79609&prodoid=63066043&infoType=Downloads&platform=Macintosh
Click the download link and save the file to your desktop, then run the installer. This should load the most recent driver. Then go to System Preferences > Print & Fax, if your printer is not listed, click the + to add it. Hope that helps.
Try this instead of using your Leopard Disc.
Immediately after the "bong" press and hold down "Command + S".
Wait for blinking cursor and then type fsck -y (exactly like that).
If you receive an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
If you receive a "Disk has been modified" then repeat the fsck -y command until you get an "Appears to be OK" then type reboot and hit the return key.
This set of commands entered in "Single User Mode" will repair your disk. If this does not work remove the hard drive, plug it into another Mac and transfer your data to a different computer. Then install a new hard drive and reinstall Mac OS X.
I have a MacBook Pro - a year and a half old - and recently upgraded to Leopard, which caused all sorts of problems with my HP 8160 photosmart (which worked pretty well before that). I downloaded the necessary drivers/softward from HP for Leopard and it worked okay - but than I also started getting the "scanner cannot be initialized" messages (doing scan all wireless). Anyway, all I did was go to applications, drag the HP softward to the trash and then went back to the HP site and downloaded the software and drivers again, and ran through the simple installation process again and now my scanner works again. Don't know why - but saw the suggestion on another site and it worked for me. Here is the link to the HP site for software/drivers - select your operating system and it will direct you to the right page.
