The software that came with my scanner sometimes takes forever to respond.
The software that came with my scanner (Epson scan) sometimes takes forever to respond.
When I use the scanner wizard to scan images by going to the control panel, clicking on scanners and cameras, then right clicking on the scanner to "Get Picture using scanner wizard" then it works immediately. This is a bit cumbersom. Does anyone know if there is a software upgrade from Epson or perhaps there is some software conflict with Epson scan?

Your epson scan software is most likely corrupted or there is another application consuming the memory on your pc. Try uninstalling the software and reinstalling. If this does not fix the issue, then you have another application on your pc causing you issues.
The epson scanner will not appear in your scanners and cameras in the control panel, this is one of the known funnies with windows and most manufacturers know about it. the create their own interface which you can find through you program files under epson scan.
Try this as a last ditch effort.
Remove the software.
Reboot the computer and come off line.
Disable the Anti Virus program.
Now install the soft ware.
If the red light still flashes then assume it is new scanner time.
1. Make sure the shipping lock on the scanner is free see- set up sheet.
2. Remove all Epson software relating to this
4. make sure you are off line.
5. Fully disable any Anti Virus software
Switch off the unit and disconnect the USB cord
