I am unable to print from my MacBook pro to an Epson 5500 proof printer. The printer works with an old G4 Mac. But it stubbornly refuses to work from the MacBook running Lion. The computer knows the Epson is there and allows the setup procedure. However when I send a file, the print status goes to Printing and then almost immediately to Ready, suggesting that the job has been completed.
The printer only has a USB interface. I have tried different cables, but all to no avail. I have even sent the same file from the G4 and the PowerBook.
Any suggestions please? Yes I do have a driver for it.
