My Epson R1800 print drivers are not recognised in Print & Scan Preferences. I just can't print. I can't access any drivers. Don't understand what I am doing wrong. Everything was working OK and suddenly my printer went off line. I removed it from the print scan section and reinstalled but have been unable to add or even find any printers I have installed. Just desn't work.

What do I do?

    Any devices that previously appeared in your Printer List and Fax List will need to be added again after resetting the printing system.
