Epson 3170 drivers
When I start up Simple Scan I get the message:
No scanners detected
Please check your scanner is connected and powered on
I am using Ubuntu 10.04 on my new computer. When I connected my Epson Perfection 3170 Photo scanner to the USB port both the scanner and Ubuntu acted like nothing had happened. I tried several more times and on different ports thinking that it could be a bad connection. I am in the Device Manager and the computer shows the Epson 3170, but it seems to refuse to connect to it. My dad connected an almost identical model Epson a month back to his Ubuntu machine and it started right up. I have read some of the answered questions about Epson scanners here and none of them seem to be working for me.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
