Exactly what it sounds like. Windows isnt getting the new device insertion prompt, allowing you to go to the "Next" button.....

It makes the BOM BOMP sound everytime I either unplug and replug in the usb or unplug the electric to the printer and plug it back in...

It was working on another computer that is being replaced.  I am going to use the microsoft print driver mover tool on Monday.

I'll also try another usb port.

In the end I used the microsoft print driver mover which sort of worked.  The printer showed up as offline.   I went into add hardware and messed around, uninstalled the yellow USB ports and Brother 7400 printer and refreshed.  Then I went into printer properties and found the USB01 port which wasn't there after the microsoft print driver finished I don't think.  Anyway, it is now printing.

Brother support said to use a smaller length USB cable which I did first and it didn't work.

Thanks,
