    I upgraded to Tiger from Panther, tried to print to my Epson Stylus 900, and it keeps switching back to "stopped" mode. I deleted the printer to try to re add the printer, and it will not add, giving me Error 9672.

    Any suggestions?

    Have you downloaded the latest drivers from epson? You can also try to power cycle the printer.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I installed the optional printer drivers from the Tiger installation DVD, restarted the computer, which took longer than I expected, so I forced it to restart, and it still took a moment before it gave me the users screen. Then I tried to add the printer, which failed with the same error, then I tried an additional Epson driver with an identical name which appeared in the popup menu for drivers.

    Then it installed. Then it worked.

    I don't know if that additional driver was in the popup before I did the optional driver intallation.

    I'm glad it worked but to prevent future grief, never force a restart during a system upgrade. :)

    Yeah, that can really screw up things, I'd know.

    It seemed to take forever, which I didn't expect for just driver upgrades.

    When I did the Tiger upgrade, it really took a long time. I forgot I had a large external hard drive connected over a slow USB connection. I thought it might be trying to do a spotlight index. Eventually the gray screen got white narrow stripes across the whole screen, which I thought was a crash, so I restarted while disconnecting the USB drive.

    It recovered fine in both cases, apparently. Maybe I should check my hard disk just in case.

    Everything sounds like it's fine this time around. I'm just saying it's not a good habit. :)

    That right there can choke your computer, be careful of trying to restart any heavy internal work whiles updating/upgrading.


    Bless
