I have a wierd computer question I need help with.

I recently built my own gaming machine. It is a rocket! Here is the problem....if I connect a USB device my computer will see it and ask for the software. This is good! The bad is I hook in my new Epson R200 USB printer and my computer does not see it. I have checked it over and over again and can not find any prolems with the USB drivers, printer, ect.... :angry:

This may seem stupid, but sometimes they want to be plugged into a particular USB port on your computer, have you tried plugging it into another USB port? And the printer is turned on when you plug it in?

Could be, but I am surprised you would be getting a hardware conflict message when trying to upgrade...that is odd...

when i first went to XP, it told me i had a few things that were not compatible, i just went ahead and installed it anyways, everything worked except the old printer i had at the time (serial connector) i went to download.com, found the driver for the printer to OS, and had no probs. as for your 'new hardware found' message not coming up, i installed a HP printer on a friends puter yesterday, and i didn't get the meesage when i first plugged it in either; try plugging the printer in, reboot, and goto 'add new hardware' (i know ya shouldn't have to with USB stuff, but nothing works perfectly all the time...besides, it'll only take a few minutes, and may save ya a few bucks if it works...BTW, it worked for me (if all else fails, try putting the CD in and instal the software))
