Question about Canon imageCLASS MF4150 All-In-One Laser Printer
MF4150 connected to Vista computer directly. All devices recognized and working
Connected a 2-port USB auto sharing switch ( Aluratek AUS0202 ) to computer.
Connected printer to switch.
As soon as I manually swich to the port that has the printer connected, Vista new hardware beeps and an Unrecognized USB devices message pops up. Device manager reports an Unknown device under USB.
Printer is not recognized.
Any ideas? I need to share this printer between 2 computers and it won;t work on my D-link printer server.

You can physically connect the printers to the server and share it from there or leave the printers connected to your computer and have the server connect to them via a Local Port which routes to your computer!! To do the Create the local ports you'll need to 1.) share the printers on your pc 2.) Go to the server and go to printers in control panel 3.)Click on Add a new printer then next 4.)Select Local Printer connected to this computer; De-select Automatically Detect Printer 5.)Select Create new port and select Local Port 6.)In the enter a port name, enter the full network path to the printer i.e. \\your-pc-name\printer-share-name click ok 7.) Select the drivers for that specific printer(if its not there click on have disk then browse to the drivers to install them) 8.) Continue through the installation until finish) 9.) Repeat steps for additional printers Keep in mind that your computer still needs to be on! You can check to see if your printer support a network card to make them fully network printer you can add them to the server this way and only the server would need to be on! Or you can also get a print server(Device that makes regular printers into network printers). Now when it comes to the scanning, i don't know of any way to share a scanner with just windows alone, but there are third party software that allows you to do that Check out http://www.remote-scan.com/ There are also printers that sorta do the scanners sharing by automatically scanning and putting files in a designated area on the network! Hope this was helpful regards, babb

I can definately help with your ID code problem, and maybe with your vista problem.
The ID problem is very simple. Normally when this happens, the copier is set up to use ID codes for copying. When you install the driver, it connects to the machine and collects these type of settings, and configures the driver to the same state as the copier. You have two options to solve this problem. you can either turn off the ID codes in the driver completely, but then your copier must be set to allow print jobs without ID codes, or you can configure the driver with your code, and set it so that it does not ask you again.
both of the options are done by going to the printer driver properties. Click on the "device setting" tab at the top.
If you want to disable the ID codes completely, simply untick the "job accounting" box. click on "Apply" and then on "OK"
If you know your code and you want to configure the driver with your ID code and set it to never ask you for the code again do the following:
Make sure that the "Job accounting" box is ticked. Click on the "settings" button to the right of "job accounting". In the window that appears tick "Allow password setting". Enter your ID code and password (If you have a password), and untick "Confirm ID/password when printing". If you like you can click on the "verify" button. This will check that the ID and password that you've entered is valid or not. This is very handy feature if you are unsure if you've entered the correct info. When you're done with the afore mentioned settings, click on "ok", "Apply" (If active), and then on "OK"
Now for your vista problem. I'm not too sure of the exact problem that you're experiencing, but from what I can make out from your description it sounds like its a driver issue. I would say go to the canon software site and download the x64 driver for your product. The URL for the site is : http://software.canon-europe.com. once you are on the site all you need to do is specify your model, the operating system (In your case Windows Vista) and the language that you want the software to be in. The site will supply you with a list of different software that you can download, make sure that you download the Vista x64 driver. The site will clearly state that the driver is compatible with x64.
Hope all this info is helpful. Have fun, and don't forget to rate me.
