Install printer on USB


Recommended Posts

I've got a HPLJ 2400 laser printer.

It was working on the parallel port until last night when it just stopped receiving data.

I hope this is just the cable, and I'll replace it. (Not as easy as it used to be, none of the local computer shops stock them.)

In the meantime, I'm trying to connect it via USB. It does have a USB port. But it isn't plug and play.

I tried to use "Add printer" in the printers folder. It asks me to choose a port: there is no USB port. Or create a port?

How do I create a USB port? I can create a port with any name, but if I try to configure it, I get "There is nothing to configure for this port"
