You are right, I thought the same thing when I down loaded the derivers package from epson everything would be in there.

It gives you the step by step installation, it sees the r2000 printer is turned on, then when you click on it to add the printer it goes online to apple for the drivers.. They are not there.. duhh.

I don't know why its done this way. I am not sure.. Mac just got a new OS so maybe the drivers are not ready for it and they have not put them online yet?

Apparently APPLE is forcing you to download "the drive"r from their server rather than from the REAL source. That is ridiculous! Epson should have sent them this driver? Why can't APPLE simply get the driver from EPSON?

Uhm you want a driver for an Epson printer, you go to Epson's site. Why wouldn't you?

The install process you describe is different:

The is the way you install a WINDOWS printer driver is as follows.

You extract the driver package.

You are shown the printer MAKE and MODEL you are about to install.

You agree that is the printer you want to install.

You proceed on and the driver extracted is copied to your machine.

You turn on and plug in your printer ( USB ) to your machine.

The PC identifies that you plugged in a device, the driver you extracted in your machine is then installed and the printer is added to your Devices and Printers. You can now print a test page.

Done.

You are not asked to go to the Microsoft site to "FIND" the driver which you already clearly provided your machine.

This is the main reason I will not touch a MAC with a ten foot pole.

Imagine me with over 15 EPSON and CANON printers having to go through this **** every time I decided to update my OS???

Holy Cow!

Well I hope you can solve your problem soon! I would be going bonkers and ready to shoot my machine right about now.
