Installing software When I try to install the software I keep getting a massage that comes up saying I sould check my usb cable??? I took my cable to the guys here in town they checked the cable and it is OK so I'm not sure what I sould try short of buying a new all in one printer. This all started when I put a new ink cartridge and it started saying there was a problem comunicating with the printer so I tried reinstalling the soft ware and now it is saying the cables is not connected and I have tryed all 3 usb ports with no luck.

I had a similar problem.  Check you bios setup.  My bios turned off my USB ports when I first connected my Lexmark 83.  Crazy as it was, that was the fix.

Bernina 180 usb to serial cable not working

it's in your computer control panel - you need to assign the com port to the cable - it took me a few tries.

In the long run, I bought the Editor Lite software for $120 on ebay - it comes with a USB dongle - that solved all my issues other than assigning the com port to the serial port. It all works like a charm now.

I'm trying g to connect my Dell AIO 922 printer to

You need to go to Control Panel add/remove programs and remove all Printer programs. Then disconnect the USB cable, install the printer software until a message comes up that says plug in your printer. If no message comes up, complete the software installation and then plug in the USB cable. The computer should find the printer at this time.

Can't connect to usb port

Hi all! I had the exact same problem - the remote recognized the USB connection but my computer (MacBook with Leopard) / Logitech software did not.  I took the advice of  bfuzcsvxvgk  and it worked like a charm.  I wasn't sure what the "Home" folder that he or she referred was, so instead I entered "Logitech" into the Spotlight finder and the Logitech folder came up.  There was only one file (usblancognac.cmd) in the folder and I deleted it. After that I reopened the Harmony Remote software and it opened! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!  Hope this helps if you are having problems!

Installing printer

Hi there!

1. Try another USB port at the laptop (if you have other USB ports in it).
2. Try a known working USB cable.
3. Try a different laptop/ computer.

This should further isolate your problem.

Hope this helps!
