I had owned an Epson CX5400 multifunction printer and ran it with no problems. However, as with all peripherals, it "died" and I replaced it with an Epson CX6000 multifunction. However, because the 6000 has the ability to crop and print photos from your camera card, etc., it seems to be acting as a "usb drive" and my once very fast computer has started to take 2 or more minutes to get through the initial boot screen to the Windows splash screen. After the Windows splash screen, all is very quick and fine. When I view the boot process, all goes very quickly and with no errors until it gets to:
Autodetecting USB Mass Storage Devices ...
where it sits for a very long time, before finally going to the Windows splash screen and on. Everything works absolutely GREAT after that, but I hate this very slow start up as it was very quick before (2 seconds).
I read on other posts about making sure there isn't an option in the BIOS to boot from a USB device, and there isn't that option there, so is there another way of having it bypass detecting the printer each and every time?
Thanks for any help you can give.
