Low quality 'Printer Cable'??? Tags: Printers USB Cable Peripherals Last response: July 11, 2006 1:13 PM in Computer Peripherals Share King_Kevin April 15, 2006 1:42:34 PM Here's the question: I bought a Canon MP500 and a 'separate' USB PRINTER Cable . However I cannot SCAN at all as either the scanner or the printer software which came along with this printer hangs or crashes. So I swapped the usb printer cable with my EXTERNAL SONY DVD Burner which came with it AND IT WORKS!!! All along I thought I had a faulty scanner but apparently not. So does a 'low' quality printer usb cable affect the performance of a printer? I just want to confirm this before I make any stupid claims with the supplier I bought this cable from. Thanks in advance More about : low quality printer cable INeedCache May 12, 2006 10:50:00 AM Could be your cable that didn't work is only USB 1.1, and the other that works is 2.0, which I think is what that device requires. Or, perhaps the cable is simply defective. Giraffe July 11, 2006 1:13:48 PM yes as the guy above me said the cable is possibly defective i would think that it is defective not "low quility" Can't find your answer ? Ask !
