Epson & IEEE 1394/FIREWIRE NOT SUPPORTED
Just had a intresting e-mail dong dong with Epson on IEEE 1394 printer
drivers for R800 & R2400 printers.

Apparently and I quote the extract:

"In answer to your e-mail, the Firewire ports on the printer and scanner are
currently redundant in regards to use with Windows Vista. This is because
Windows vista its self does not have full Firewire support. Therefore EPSON
does not have any plans to support the use of Firewire on Windows Vista."

Anyone else know otherwise? Epson, Microsoft, any answers?

Man, this Epson/Vista suff is getting worse and worse. Somebody should
sue to make them cough up the resources to finish full Vista support
for all printers/scanners that were on the market in the last 3 years.

I have an Epson Stylus Photo 960. Expensive printer, only been off the
market now for 1 year, but they won't write a fully functional driver
for it, even though Epson Europe HAS written and posted a fully
functional Vista driver for the Epson Stylus Photo 950, which is the
EXACT SAME PRINTER. Only the 950 drivers won't work with the 960
because of file name and printer identification string differences. A
competent enginner could repackage the 950 driver for the 960 in a
couple of hours, but Epson refuses to listen. I've tried.

Unless they change their attutude soon, they've lost a customer for
life.
