I'm trying to hook up a nightmare LP2844 zebra printer to my Dell Inspiron running 7. When I go to printer properties and go to ports it always defaults to Com port or safe as file port. THERE are NO USB ports available in list. For 3 days I've been trying to find out why or to add it. No luck. Techs say that USB is virtual on 7 but if that's the case, my printer would work. It will not detect the printer and when I print under any other port it does nothing, but if I choose Com it spools and just says error under printing dialogue box. But without being able to select a USB port, I don't know where to start. Its a Zebra 2844 refurbished USB label printer. Hope somebody can help. My computer is a Dell 64 Inspiron using 7.
