This is a common problem with HP and canon printers and scanners..However dont waste your time uninstalling and installing all of the software..Just go to device manager and update driver it will hardly take 30 seconds..

Before we conclude that cable is faulty, we have few things that need to be checked.
In the device manager check for "Other Devices" and expand it, you may see an device with exclamation sign on it. Right click and uninstall the device.
Disconnect the printer USB and reconnect it back.
Windows 7 detects the hardware and automatically installs the correct driver.
Note:When you connect the USB cable to the printer, and then to the computer, Windows 7 activates Windows Update. Windows Update searches online for the most recent product driver on the Windows Update site. If the online driver is more recent than the driver stored in Windows 7, the computer downloads and installs the updated driver.The Windows Update process takes place automatically. Therefore, you might not notice that the process is in progress. If you dont see any notification on connecting the printer, try plugging to different USB port. If non if these works, replace the cable. Good Luck!!
Don’t connect the printer usb cable first 1st you install the driver disc which is come along with the printer and when the software prompt you to connect the cable then plug the usb cable and follow the instruction. Also I suggest you to change the usb port and the cable also still if you facing the problem follow these steps, right click on my computer and go to properties then hardware in that click on device manger and check there is any other device is listed if it is there just remove it and click for scan for hardware changes when he prompt for driver reinstall the driver cd. Hope this helps. Please rate my response. Thanks. Have a good day.
if it's a usb-dongle, the driver's will be reinstalled every time you reconnect the device. the drivers are on your computer, but have to reconnect with the network adapter when it's reconnected. if the problem is the same after a reboot without disconnecting the network adapter, then there is either a problem with the usb-device, or a driver management problem in windows.
if the usb-device works without problem on another computer, the you need to reinstall windows.
This issue occurs when the drivers are not installed properly.
Once remove the USB cable from the laptop and insert the all-in-one CD and click on add a device and follow the on screen instructions and connect the USB cable when it prompts at the middle and complete the process. Then restart the computer and then check for the result.
We experience this issue if the drivers are not isnatlled properly. Once remove the USB cable from the computer if the all-in-one connected using USB and if it is network then no need to remove the ethernet cable. Now insert the CD in the computer and click on add a device option and follow the onscreen instaructions, in the miidle it will prompt to connect the USB cable then connect the USB cable and complete the process. This will resolve the issue.
The L7580 is not meant to be set up as a scanning device on a network. This unit can only function properly as a USB connected device to have all the features work. Also, for the software to install with out problems, all other All in One software fro previous HP printers need to be removed. Once we did that and did clean install using USB only then did it work.
I recently have the same problem with windows XP ( when I connected the printer the message USB device unknown message appeared) Before wasting your time unistalling and reinstalling driver, I strongly recommend this:
Change the USB cable for a new one that works properly for USB 2.0 FULL SPEED . What does it mean ?. Well if you have an older cable is very probably that it doesn't work well at USB2.0 full speed (480Mbps) because it's not properly shielded, if you buy a new one check specifications on the box to see if it is prepared for 480Mbps. Testings in other PCs is not relevant unless you're ABSOLUTLY SURE that USB ports are working at full speed in those PCs
I changed old cable for a new one ( Belkin), and no more problems.
