Hi Kevin,
I think it might be that your computer currently has USB1.1 ports and the printer would work better with USB 2 ports. I believe the printer should still work or you could replace the usb's internally.
Failing that I'm sure someone else will have a view. :cheers:

In almost all cases peripheral devices designated USB 2. will be backwards compatible with USB 1.1 It sounds to me like this is a case of requiring the correct driver for the printer installed as it woks on another machine. The difference in speed between 1.1 and 2.0 with regard to printing is negligible.
If you can tell us which printer and which system is installed on your computer. We can point you at the driver download page.
