XP can't detect USB printers
Posted on 2004-11-08
USB ports work properly and auto detect any USB device that is plugged in except USB printers. When a USB printer is plugged in I get the following error message:
"Cannot Install this Hardware
There was a problem installing this hardware:
USB Printing Support
An error occurred during the installation of the device.
The data is invalid"
Printer drivers are installed for Epson Stylus C60 and Canon i9100, but when looking in printer configuration / Ports, there is no USB options listed. Neither can they be found when selecting "Add" to add another port.
