Hi, I have an Epson Stylus DX4450, which prints nicely, but it is a known fact that Linux won't let it scan. I've tried the various suggestions on the net for drivers from epkowa, avasys, iscan etc to no avail. So I thought I'd have a go at using the printer / scanner through Virtualbox, I have Win7 installed on an external usb disk drive. On inserting the Epson system disk, it seems to install correctly, but I assume it installs on the internal HDD? This is of course no good for Win7 in Vb, as it's physically on a different disk. When I'm in Vb (Win7) I can't see the external disk itself - unless Win thinks it's the c: drive, in which case I can't see the internal disk. Confused? So am I. Btw, the scanner worked perfectly under Win7 before I saw the light and changed to Pclos. It pains me to have to resort back to Win just to get my scanner working.
