After plugging & unplugging my printer USB cable a number
of times, now my computer does not recognize it at all.
As a result, I am with out a printer for the time being.
I have tried updating the drivers for the USB, to no
avail. I have un-installed and re-installed the printer,
to no avail. I have re-booted a number of times, to no
avail. Is there a way to download new software for the
USB port?

Any help would be much appreciated!

Printerless in Orlando.

Thanks. Yes, I have tried that. To no avail. Can I un-
install the USB and then re-install?

make sure you have all the updates and patches from windows update.

uninstall the USB, then reboot, windows will reinstall the USB.
