Printer causes Flash Drive and Ipod to not work

I installed the software and it said that it installed sucessfully. However, whenever my printer is plugged into the usb port, my computer doesn't recognize either my flash drive or my Ipod. However, if I unplug the printer from the computer, they both work again. If anyone has any solutions it would be appreciated.

    Yeah, it did. It turned out to be a faulty USB cord. Thanks for the help!

    Hi Kamaji I registered for the site now. I posted the the 2 sugestions about using a USB hub did it solve your problem? If so Great! I hate to see these odd issues discourage people from getting one of these Kodak printers Once they get all the kinks worked out, these printers are a good deal for ink and quality prints..

Even better connect the Printer to the USB hub and the Ipod to the PC. Its a better idea to isolate the printer. Also if you have another USB cable you can use for the printer that might help as well. There are some bumb usb cables out there.

Ipods and the Kodak printer are both high power devices. There are known issues on common intel motherboards with multiple high power usb devices. You may just have this bad luck, and your motherboad printer ipod combo just wont work at the same time. The best advice I can offer you is to get a High Speed Powerd USB hub. Connect either the IPOD or the printer to the hub and connect the other directly to a USB port on the PC.

Good Luck!

Whenever i insert my 2gb iball flash drive it gets detected but whenever i try to open it it gives the message insert disk into drive

The drive has two components:
* the electronics that tell Windows that it is a flash-drive
* the actual "memory"

In your case, the 1st component is working fine, but the 2nd component has failed.

Spend $10 to purchase a new flash-drive.

I need to install my printer LBP 2900 how?

Without knowing the OS that you are installing this into, make this difficult to properly resolve .... Here is a link to the Canon-Europe website ... this is where you will select your OS and and follow the online steps to locate the correct driver software in relation to your OS ..... be sure to read everything closely as you work your way closer to receiving a usable driver download .... if you cannot download this directly onto your PC .... download the software, saving onto a USB flash drive ....When you are ready to install, be sure to have the USB flash drive on hand to plug into the PC you wish to install the driver onto.
