Re: Temperamental USB

I thought I had a USB problem with my Canon Selphy USB printer, but I found out the printer driver program was port specific. I had installed the driver, but if I plugged the printer into a different USB port, it would tell me to install the driver again. I finished up with three copies of the printer driver program installed before I realised what was going on. I now have one copy of the driver installed and make sure I connect the printer to the same USB port every time.

This doesn't happen with a USB flash drive, or my memory card reader, which seem to work OK whichever port in plug them in.
