hi ppl hope you can help i bought a new dell dimension dxp061 duo 6400@2.13 running xp media centre v2002 sp2 a few months back and i have been unable to successfully install my Epson r300.
Get through the setup until the Epson printer utility setup asks to connect the printer and turn it on and w8 for confirmation. Great
But when I plug the printer in and turn it on windows recognizes it and asks for usb2.0mfp(hi-speed), also had exactly the same problem with my psp so hope u can help
Thanks in advance

it looks like you are pluging it into a usb1 port these devices use usb2 they will function correctley usb2 is just has a higher data transfer rate

Hope this helps you may also have usb2 ports on your pc as well try plugging it into differant ports
