Having just had this exact same problem, you're going to be amazed at 
the answer.

By installing the Epson driver from the disk, you overwrote the one 
that was already built into the system, and the one on the disk (and 
the one from the website) are no good.

You must now load your System install discs, deselect everything but 
the Epson drivers (pick whichever one supports the C82) and allow that 
to install, then restart. Doh!
