What is the make and model of the printer? There may be no drivers for it. This may be a dumb question, but you did turn it on before you plugged it into the computer, didn't you?

printer is an hp 2035. it was initially connected then all of a sudden stopped working. i tried to reinstall the os as i had been advised by someone else but it gave the same message. tried it on another machine running windows 7 it also refused. tried on an xp it worked. i tried another printer, a cannon, it also gave the same usb not recognized error message where i tried to install.

What brand/model printer? Are you using 32bit or 64bit Win7 ? Is this a new printer with Win7 drivers?
Have you tried uninstalling the printer software and re-starting the install process?
Have you checked on the printer website for any reported issues? Look in their FAQ section.

Windows7 is not listed. The Vista driver may work but there is no guarantee

I see Grasshopper found a more up to date driver list.
