    :confused: I just installed this printer and have Windows 2000. Everything works fine. The Epson dealer advised that if the printer was not being used to turn it off. He explained that Epson does not use print heads on the cartridges and if I turn it off the ink cartridges will last longer (not dry out or clog).

    Okay, the problem - when I turn off the printer I get the following message:

    Unsafe removal of device

    The devices listed are: USB mass storage device and generic volume

    I have even checked the box so that the unplug/eject button is supposed to show up on the toolbar. It does not.

    I have tried to go into the add/remove hardware and it does not show anything in the box when I tried to unplug/exit.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks

    Just ignore the message. I get the same thing with my HP PSC-750. It's a bit annoying, but I have learned to live with it. :)

    Thanks for your response. My husband was on the phone with Epson for over an hour. They concluded it was not the printer that caused this issue. They told him to call Microsoft because this could cause damage to the computer. Any other thoughts on how to resolve this?

    P.S. The camera we use also used this USB port (before we got the printer) and it would unplug correctly.
