This sounds like an crash in the drive, so you will need to format your HDD and if stll problem persists you need to take it to the service centre with the warranty.

Thankyou

Computer no longer recognizes my scanner


If you are using a multi port USB adapter that allows you to plug many devices into one USB port it may interfere with the scanner. Try uninstalling your Epson driver then download the newest one from the Epson website. http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/support/supDetail.jsp?oid=88368&prodoid=63070478&BV_UseBVCookie=yes&infoType=Downloads&platform=All&x=27&y=14

Install the newest driver first then plug your scanner into a single USB port on the computer instead of the multi port.

Usb ports not recongized


Hello,

Do use in the front ports, sometime this port is unplug to the motherboard so it need to connect before you can use that port. In the back port you can always use that ports in there it is safe to connect any plug and play device such as flash disk or usb port printer. if this both not recognize your any device you inserted then probably your device is dead. try insert your device to other pc to see if still working if not then maybe the driver of your pc are not installed. try reinstall all the driver of your system.

may this help.

Usb ports


do you have the lastest drivers for your chipset (motherboard) installed? are you using the front or rear USB ports? If you're using the front then make sure the front panel USB ports are actually plugged into the motherboard.
