USB device not recognzed
I am attempting to install a new HP LaserJet P1006 USB printer on Win98SE. HP says it is 'unsupported', but the Win9x drivers are on the supplied CD. The install properly detects the printer, installs MS USB Printer Support and gets almost to the end before it says that the device cannot be installed. The printer will install on LPT1, which is fine, except there is no USB printer port installed to re-direct the output. All I need is to add a HP-compatible USB printer port to the list. How can I do it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Can you use any other USB devices like a memory stick?

    is there another USB port on the machine?  I had a machine that had that issue, and I installed a new USB Card / Hub upgrading the machine to USB 2.0.  You could also try attaching through a separate hub that attaches to the machine.

    Have you looked at computer / System properties /  device manager / USB controllers to see if they are all recognized? Also are the hub and printer both USB 2.0 ?
