I've had help from people on here before so now it's my turn(!) ....
A few days ago I posted a message saying I was having trouble with my
CX5200. It is on my new 'Vista Home Premium' Pc and is being shared by my
older 'XP' Pc (using a router network). Some facilities didn't work at all,
the printing process was dead slow (especially when printing from the 'XP'
Pc), I couldn't see the ink levels etc.
I'm glad to say that, after spending many hours investigating, contacting
Epson and generally twiddling with various settings, things are better (by
about 50%). BUT I'm sure that will be the limit of any improvements and,
fairly soon, I'm sure I'll find myself getting a new replacement printer.
Basically, Epson are not going to issue new drivers and so that's it - in
fairness, though, I must say that one of their Tech guys was as helpful as
he could be. He emailed me some instructions which were useful and involved
getting a download from the Microsoft site (yeh, not the Epson site). I
think the download in fact comprises new drivers but they only half do the
job. Still, I guess something's better than nothing!
If anyone would like to make use of a copy of the info given to me by Epson,
just reply on here and I'll post it on one of my websites for all to see.
