Everytime you disconnect and reconnect the USB cable to a different port, unfortunately, Windows creates a new and distinct copy of the printer. You can see this by looking at the Windows Printers folder. The solution is when you change around USB ports, right click on the printer icon that is actually the active one (the other copies will be grayed out) and Set to Default. Then you can delete the other invalid copies. Then in the Minolta status software, go to the Display menu and Select Printer to change which printer is monitored to the correct copy. It's very stupid that Windows Plug n' play does this, but it does. So avoid change around USB ports on your Konika Minolta printer.
connect the printer and the comp. and boot up....windows should recognize the new device.
did you add the plotter to "add printers" and its driver and to the correct port?
make sure your plotter is on and loaded and function key pressed.
also some cable manufacturers supply a driver...so download one if need be.
what software are you using? is the software cutter driver set to the correct printer and port?
(by default it never is)!!
hi, well xp is a better OS than 98 ( i think) ... few things you should know that xp is pre-installed with lotsa drivers..but on the other hand 98 isn't .. so each time you put in a USB device you need to install the driver for that device( eg your camera, pen drive etc...) . this drivers would be there accompanied with your device. hope it helps regards bzoy
Oh God i have the same exact problem. I run XP Pro and USB ports all malfunctioned, after tyring EVERYTHING I reloaded windows and it worked.......for about 8 months, now I'm back to I can't use my printer, storage devices ANYTHING that plugs into the USB ports. I'm at my wits end. I'm thinking of throwing the compter out the window
Hope this helps. Be sure the USB port at BIOS setting are enable. And also, you have to update the USB device or uninstall the unknown error (it may contain missing USB driver). Restart the computer and place your motherboard CD installer in the CDROM browse the folder where the USB driver is located. You have to resolve first this error before proceeding to next possible steps. Another way of installing printer or any USB devices; Dettached first the USB cable connecting to PC or laptop, Install the driver (CD installer) when prompt to connect the USB cable connect the cables and turn the printer on, browse manually where the file being looked and is located.
Probably the best and easiest solution for your problem would be to buy an EDIMAX USB-Ethernet print server, or something equivalent. I have several of these running on the network at work. They're easy to setup and they work great.
