I'm trying to run a USB printer on an older computer with Win 98SE OS. Listed ports available for the printer don't include USB (only com1,com2 & lpt appear in the dialogue box) Can anyone tell me how to install this port please? A card with 2 USB ports is fitted and this appears to work ok as I'm using one of them with a flash key.
Cheers
George

Hi and welcome to PressF1.

What is the make / model of the printer you are trying to install?

Printer is a Canon S300. It has only a USB output port.
Thanks

Did you follow the install procedure of firstly installing the Win98/ME drivers from the Canon CD, and then power up the printer and connect the USB cable?

Yes, this is essential. You MUST follow the correct procedure or it won't work.

Thanks Guys. Turns out printer was in fact an old S330 (not S300). Installing the correct driver & following instructions now all OK
