Re: Incompatible USB 2.0 port
Just a suggestion, but I've seen some printers around the office with USB
ports which are for some purpose other than to connect through to your PC
(like a USB hub would). This is kind of confusing since most other hardware
(LCD monitors, some keyboards) act as USB hubs, but these printers don't.
Try plugging your flash drive into a port that's on the computer, not on the
printer & see if that works. If your box isn't particularly reachable,
consider picking up one of those snazzy USB hubs with a long cable.
