Not able recognize the usb device for windows 7

If you can, check that the printer is still recognized on another pc. It's possible that the printer is faulty.
If it does work on another pc, then the next step is to try a different USB port on your computer, preferabbly one at the back of the computer, not the front.
Also make sure you have install the drivers before you connect it to your computer.

PC won't recognize HP C4180

I have heard that there is such a thing as having bad drivers, and that they must be deleted and new ones installed, I am not familiar with the procedure but I know that I have read this recently. This may guide you in the right direction, oh yes I remember now I recently read a solution by an expert here called: bandana_gyrl, she can probably explain this to you.

I have a hp psc 2210 all in one that want install i dont have the cdr for it.

Here is a link to the HP website where you can download the correct drivers for your operating system.
Just select your operating system, XP, Vista, Etc. and click on the link, then click on the link to download the most recent drivers for you printer. After download, run the set up and install your printer. You may not want to hook up your usb cable for the printer until instructed to do so within the setup as it may not recognize the printer and cause set up to fail if plugged in before set up is executed.
