I owe Epson Stylus Photo R300 printer which is now somewhat old, however working fine except that it more often then not loses it's USB connection and it is really irritating. Whenever, I begin to print a document, midway through I am able to hear the normal sound I get when connecting/disconnecting a USB device and in the process printing stops. After that I hear similar sound one more time and recommends USB connection has been remade although the printing does not resume and I have to start all over again. Originally the printer was associated by means of a hub , hence I altered it to a direct USB port I have also made use of a dissimilar cable. I do not have any issue with other USB devices. Any help friends?
