The iMac recognizes the printer but shows that it is offline. I downloaded the driver for it (hopefully the correct one). The printer worked fine connected to my old PC. Thanks for any assistance in advance.

I had the same issue with a new 27 iMac yesterday (could not hold out anymore for the 2012 iMac, but that is another thread). I called Epson support; come to find out it was a defective USB cable. Switched out the USB cable while the Epson tech was on the line, and bingo...printer works.

Not Mac compatible

I found out through Samsung that the printer will not work with the Imac I have. Thanks again for all the assistance.
