    I recenlty installed Parallels to access my (Bootcamp) Win 7 install as a virtual OS. I have an Epson RX600 printer plugged directly into my 27" iMac via USB. The PRinter works great on the MAC OS side, but on the Windows side, even though the printer shows up in the list and says "ready", when I try to print, nothing happens. No errors or anything.

    I'm hoping someone has had a similar problem with a similar set up and might have some suggestions?

    UPDATE: In case anyone else has this problem, the answer is on page 135 of the Parallels Desktop for Mac Users Guide, which tells you how to share a printed plugged into your iMac with the virtual machine (e.g., Windows).
