Re: usb device not recognized

hi,

try cheking with any other usb device on the ports of the concerned computer to check the port functionality of the ports,

if affirmative,go to the devicemanager and check for the usb printing support in universal serial bus controller,

if there are any usb composite device entry,just get rid of that ,

then if you get any unknown device there ,try updating the drivers and gave the driver cd path manually by selecting havedisk.

best of luck

Try updating the driver for that USB port.  Go into the Device Manager, double click on the USB port, and click on Update Driver.  If you have a previous driver that worked for that USB port, you could also roll-back the driver.  Sometimes the updated driver could have a bug.
