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.
