Ouch.  After installing the driver, the printer is gone from my printer list and I can't seem to add (+) it.  It says the driver is not available from Apple and to check with the manufacturer.  I tried to reinstall the driver again, but still no success.

Anyone else have this problem, and more importantly, figure out how to fix it?


EDIT:  I couldn't figure it out, so I rolled back the driver and everything works fine.

Does anyone know if there will be a new driver for the Epson Stylus Photo 2100? I think they only marked the 2100 in Europe.

I now wish I hadn't downloaded and installed it. Completely messed up the 'Print' function in both Photoshop and Lightroom - no Print Settings. Had to uninstall it and re-install the driver that came with the printer.

Avoid at all costs!

Just wondering if the driver problem is the fact this is from a U.S. site and I see you are in the UK?

I have the Epson 3880 and live in the U.S. but have not yet downloaded this update.
Now I am wondering if anyone in the U.S. has had any problems?

I have tried Mac driver version 6.60 for the 3880 on 10.5.8 without problems, printing from CS4.

I just installed the new 3880 driver on my MacPro 8-core running SL 10.6.2. I printed a few prints to different Epson papers using Epson's profiles with no problems at all.

Cheers.

I just uploaded the new driver--without reading the rest of the comments.
Thus, with great anxiety, I tried printing a file from Lightroom.

Success!

I am in the USA.

The above seems to be only in French and Dutch

For the same site in English try:

http://esupport.epson-europe.com

It seems that there is no better driver for the Stylus Pro2100

Today I finally installed the newer 3880 driver 6.60 with no problems.
However I now notice in the drop down menu under print settings PRINT MODE instead of having Color option it now has AccuPhoto HD2.

I had thought something had gone wrong with the print setting menu until I found this:

According to the Epson Website: http://www.epson.com/cgi-bin/Store/jsp/Pro...UseBVCookie=yes

"AccuPhoto HD2 technology was created from a collaboration between Epson and the Rochester Institute of Technology's Munsell Color Science Laboratory and combines a complex mathematical architecture and advanced screening technology to provide outstanding image quality."

You may read more about this with the above link.

My question is has anyone had any changes (with color) with prints with the 3880 and AccuPhoto HD2?

The 2100 was marketed as 2200 in the US. Same printer.
