I recently purchased a second hand Epson DX6050 printer/scanner and had to download the drivers from the epson site as the software discs were missing. The software comes in two different downloads, one set of drivers for the scanner and another set for the printer. Firstly I installed the drivers for the scanner which took a few minutes and it is now up and running fine.

When I try to install the software for the printer, it unzips, loads and goes through the installation process normally (although the entire process seems to take only a few seconds which i find rather odd) and claims that it has installed the software. However there is no sign of the drivers or software anywhere on my computer and the printer still doesn't work. I've tried installing in both normal and safe modes and downloaded the software from the official epson site and some other download locations to no avail.

If anyone could shed some light on this it would be appreciated.

I am running my pc with 32-bit windows xp media edition (service pack 3), Intel dual core 6300 @ 1.83ghz with 1Gb of RAM.

Hi :thumbsup:.

Have you tried installing this device on a different system...as a test of its capability to perform?

The only other thing I would try...would be to remove all unused drivers which might possibly interfere with the install effort...and then retry the install.
