    All USB-installed printers lost after Update 1903


    I had been required to install the May update (1903), under threat of the System that otherwise I would Looks the support. So I did. After that, all installed Printers were "lost". Installing web Printers was easy, but I still have Trouble with USB-connected Printers. Even with the original Installation disks and procedures, Windows 10 frequently does not recognize the Printers (e.g. only after unplugging the USB cable and reconnecting it. Anyone knows why this happens and how to fix it?

    :)

    Mac OSX USB printer problem

    OK i just bought the Canon IP4500 usb printer and installed it on the mac following hte instructions to the letter.

    No printer is found and i cannot add it in the Printer list, cause theres no option for USB printer installation, only Appletalk, Bluetooth, and Windows Printing.

    I have downloaded the latest drivers etc... but no luck *Bang Head :banghead:

    As it is i dont like macs but now with a simple thing as this i dislike them even more.

    Last resort is trying installing the printer on a Vista pc and see if it works, if it does then the mac is up to shit, if it does not install then the printer is up to shit.

    Anyone had a similar problem maybe and how did you overcome it?
