It can be re-created if you re-connect the USB printer cable to your Mac. Try the following:
- Turn on the printer.
- Disconnect and reconnect the printer's USB cable to your Mac.
- Open System Preferences.
- Open Print & Fax.
- If your Epson USB printer is not listed here, then click on (Add) and highlight your Epson USB printer, and then click on Add. Drivers may also be available through Apple's Software Update tool.
If you are still unable to use the printer, then you may not have installed Printer Support when you upgraded the Mac. This is listed as an Optional Install on the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD.
You can install Printer Support from the Apple Mac OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD. For help with the installation, see 'I can no longer see or add any printers after I upgraded from Mac OS X 10.5.x to Mac OS X 10.6.x on my Intel-based Mac. How can I add my Epson printer?'. The link is available in the Related Articles section at the top-right of this article.
After installing Printer Support, run Software Update from the (Apple) menu, then disconnect and reconnect your printer and it should appear in the Print & Fax list.
Snow Leopard includes drivers for many Epson printer and scanner models and these drivers can be used with your Epson product until we provide updated drivers. Other products require specific drivers which will be made available for download from the Epson support website. We recommend that you periodically check our support article 'Epson and Snow Leopard - Mac OS X 10.6' for updates in order to obtain the latest software and utilities for your Epson product as they may be needed for this new operating system.
