Epson ET-8550 Connection Query

I connected my new ET 8550 via USB and it prints fine. However, in Printing Preferences I see a red cross and Status Monitor 3 shows a communications error with the ink levels greyed out. Any idea what causes this? I tried connecting another PC via Wifi and that shows the ink levels fine. I'm unsure at this stage whether this is an Epson software bug or something weird with the handling of the USB connection by my PC.
