Bought a new printer this week and I was hoping to install it on my computer. After inserting the disc that came with the printer, my disc driver just spun the disc a few times and never recognized the disc. So, I figured why not just download the driver from Lexmark instead and see how that works. So i downloaded the driver from their website and I'm in the middle of installing. I get to a point where it's necessary I plug the USB port into the printer so that they can calibrate things between the printer and computer. When I plugged the printer into my computer, a Found New Hardware Wizard screen popped up (the bubble also popped up at the bottom saying ''LEXMARK 4300"). So, I clicked the recommend search for drivers and after searching for a while, it came up with zilch. So i did the advanced search and tried to have the wizard look specifically in the driver folder I just downloaded from Lexmark. That didn't work because i couldn't find a folder that had any file ending with '.inf'. Now I'm stuck at a point where I'm not sure where to go next. For the past two years i have had problems with my usb ports and everything new that I put in them. Old things like my ipod, my zune, and a few flash drives are recognized and work well. But anything new will not work. Any clues on how I can install this printer and fix my usb problem?
