Since yesterday when I plug in my Brother USB printer into my laptop (Win XP Pro version 2002, SP2), I get the following pop up balloon on my taskbar:
USB Device not recognized
One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it.
I have been using my printer for the past 5 months without this error occuring. I didn't install any new software lately. ANd I don't think the fault lies with my printer, cos it works fine with my other PC.
I've tried uninstalling the printer driver, but now I can't re-install it because there is an installation step which requires me to plug in the printer to the USB port, and that error pops up again.
I've also tried using other USB ports, but the same problem occurs.
My printer is Brother MFC-425CN.
Thanks for the help.
