I am using a canon mp640 and has been working fine via usb on my netbook, running xp.
That is, until today. First message was the the print spooler is not running. Uninstalled and reinstalled drivers. Now unknown error is reported. No printer icon appears either, just an usb storage device icon? Have tried rebooting both netbook and printer, changing usb printer cable, different usb port and resetting printer settings on the printer. I do not have a network setup, just direct connection btwn netbook and printer. Any suggestions? Thanks
