I HAVE INSERTED THE SOFTWARE FOR THE XP-322 INTO MY MACBOOKPRO AND FOLLOWED THE INSTRUCTIONS BUT THIS MESSAGE APPEARS ON THE PRINTER-COMMUNICATION ERROR PLEASE CHECK CONNECTION. THIS IS WHAT I CANOT UNDERSTAND-WHAT EXACTLY DOES THIS MEAN, I TRIED IT AGAIN THIS MORNING AND STILL RECEIVE THE SAME MESSAGE-THE PRINTER IS NOT SPEAKING TO MY MAC,IT LOOKS AS IF IT HASN'T RECOGNISED THE EPSOM. SOMEBODY SAID PERHAPS ITS THE DRIVER FOR THE SCAN PART-ANY FURTHER SUGGESTIONS? TONY STANYER

It does recognize the printer, because it prints beautifully, according to what you said in your original statement of the question. It is just that the scanner must be configured, using the software on your mac. It is not sufficient to install the software. You have to open it and initiate a procedure to configure the scanner.
