When I plug in my (HP PSC 1210V) printer's USB cable it says "Found New Hardware" then goes to the wizard, and whether I try to install the software automatically or from the CD it doesn't work. The wizard says
"There was a problem installing this hardware psc 1200 series; An error occured during the installation of the device; The data is invalid."
I have tried downloading the drivers from HP's websited too, and I run into the same problems.
I get the same error when I try to install the drivers for my TI-89 Titanium calculator, two separate digital cameras, and I have similar problems with both of my flash drives.
Both my cable modem and my wireless adapter seem to have installed just fine though.
I ran a windows update, but no changes.
In the device manager it shows my hardware with exclamation marks, and in "Device Status" it says:
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver.
When I switch back to my old hardrive all of the devices work properly.
The new hardrive is from a duplicate computer, both computers where bought at the same time and place.
