    I've never had this kind of problem installing a printer with OS X before...

    I ran the CD that came with the printer. Installed the drivers and all the other software on it. I connected the printer to a free USB port on my computer, go into "Print and Fax" preferences, and the printer is not listed. I can click on "Add" to try adding it, and I choose "USB" as the printer type; the Epson R200 is listed, but it says "No Driver Installed." I have installed and uninstalled the drivers several times with no success--I even went to Epson's website to download the latest drivers. Nothing! What am I doing wrong?

    Epson R200 driver not installed with G5 10.3.3

    I bought a new Epson printer model R200 yesterday and my G5 dual 1.8 can not find the driver. The printer works by using Epson's Printer Utility but that's it. I've removed all items with the name Epson and reinstalled with no luck. I spent 3 hours on the phone with Epson and they're stumped. Next is Apple to see if they can help. Anyone find an answer to this problem?

    Hey Guys,

    I bought this printer a few days ago and had the same frustrating problem. The answer lied in simply reading the Setup "Poster" that came in the box. If you go back and read it closely, you will see that after installing the driver, you need to manually install the printer (twice, in fact, once for normal printing and another time for sheet-fed/borderless prints)

    To manually install the printer, simple open up the Printer Setup utility in the Utlities folder, and then click the "ADD" button on the top toolbar. From there, select "EPSON USB" in the top drop-down menu and bada-bing, you will see the printer. Make sure the lower PAGE SETUP drop-down menu reads "ALL" so it will install both printer settings.

    Also, this printer is AWESOME! Perfect borderless photos for 89.99 after rebate!!!!
