Can anyone help please? After disconnecting and moving my computer, for some reason my Epson scanner just won't work, I have never had any trouble with it previously. When I try to connect it, it just makes a loud noise, as though something is trapped and won't allow it to move. I tried to uninstall and start all over again but I get a box coming up which says ms-dos doesn't recognise it or something similar.

Hello Rico, did you use the built in lock before you moved the scanner?
On many Epson's they seem located beside the glass (upper left), or at the side (upper left), or at the very back.
Often they just look like some switch with a small picture of a lock near to it.

-If you didn't, then the scanner probably needs repair or replacement.

-If you did, then double check and see if it's still locked down...

The PC could've taken a hit when moving.
I'd run scandisk and see what it says (errors on drive), or with XP use the "chkdsk /f" command and schedule it for the next reboot.

Of course you could send epson an email.
