I use software configured for Mac OS-9. Now, with a new epson C88 installed (which works just fine in OSX), that software won't find/recognize the C88.

THIS IS A NEW PROBLEM: A week ago, when I wished to print from ACT! (see below) a C84 window popped up and printing commenced (on the C88). i.e., the respective drivers seemed to have no trouble until now finding/using the C88. (epson tech support alleges this was impossible, but what do they know?)

I believe I still have the C82 & 84 drivers installed; in fact, the (ACT) software brings up one or both epson windows, accepts the jobs, but then there's a pop-up that says the ( C82 or C84 ) printers are not responding...

Any ideas? Workarounds? I'd hate to have to go out and purchase a C84 just to run that software (e.g., an antique Mac version of ACT!, Visioneer/PaperPort, etc.)

Phil,

This forum was set up to help the folk who live on this island, who were given a bunch of fairly inadequate PCs a few years ago by the Scottish Executive (now Government) with very little follow-on support.

Why someone from the USof A should sign up for this forum and post here specifically for computer advice is beyond me. There are plenty of dedicated Mac forums on the web.

I would help you if I could, but Macs are something I avoid like the plague. Apple make very nice MP3 players and other pretty gadgets, and the design of their computers is generally very innovative and superficially attractive. However, the problems of sourcing software, drivers and support for what is very much a minority computing choice lead me to counsel most people against going down the Mac road when it comes to choosing a personal computer.

Good luck with your problem.
