Hi all
I while back I moved my pc from the shed to the lounge but I did not relocate the installed printer with the pc, then I wanted to print something off the net so I sent it to print and it was stored in the print folder and I thought this was fine as when I move the pc back to where it came from and I reconnect the printer it can then print. Trouble was when I reconnected the printer it reinstalled it as a copy of the original printer. So when I look in my printer folder it has brother 1430 and brother 1430 (copy). And when I set the original install as default and online it comes up with error. I have 9 documents stuck in there that I cannot print, I tried dragging the docs from the original install to the new one but that option is not there.
Does this have anything to do with changing usb ports?
Any help will be appreciated, Cheers

Could well be the change of ports. Have you tried deleting the copy and attaching the printer to the original port?

Delete the original. Rename the copy.

Delete the original. Rename the copy.

IF I delete the the original wont' I loose the documents that are waiting to be printed?
