USB Device Unknown Epson C43UX Printer

Hi, I have an Epson C43UX printer.

When I connect it to a WinXP machine, it finds it as a USB Unknown Device and Windows thinks this is right. (no warnings in device manager) If you go to device manager, properties, it says "No drivers installed"

When I connect it to a Win2k machine, it finds it as a USB Unknown Device and is marked with a yellow exclamation and in properties it says "No drivers installed"

Is this printer busted (seems to come on, feed the paper through and all that) or is there something else I can try?

Both computers have other USB devices which work (no printers -> mouse, scanner, camera, keyboard). I tried without the other devices (by itself) as well

Have you tried downloading the driver from epson (the c42UX driver should work) and installing it?

Hi, sorry for my delay in reply, but I sent this printer to the manufacturer (Epson) (took a month) and they sent me a C45 back. So I guess its a factory problem.

Thank you all
