I have installed my Epson CX4800 onto Vista Home Premium 64bit (using 64-bit driver from epson).  However, the scanner function works but the printer will not work.  it says that it is install but that there is a communication error.

Hi

I'm just wondering if you got the latest version.  It looks fairly new, 4/29/9.  On the Microsoft site:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/Details.aspx?type=Hardware&p=Stylus%20CX4800%2020%2F19ppm%205760x1440dpi%20Print%2FCopy%2FScan%20USB%202.0&v=Epson&uid=C11C610001&pf=0&pi=8&c=Printers%20%26%20Scanners&sc=Multifunction&os=64-bit

it says it's compatible.

Here's the link to the Epson one I'm looking at:

Just to make sure, do you have the Scanner Driver v3.04A.

Let me know and we'll sort out the error from there.

uucknaaa,

thanks for the posting.  the epson driver eventually working with a little bit of work and a new usb cord.  it was strange to me that the cord would have an effect on the printing but not the scan capability of the unit.  But i did manage to get the printer and scanner up and working thank you.
