My new laptop, with only USB 3.0 won't work with my Dell 2130cn laser printer. I've tried updating the driver and other work arounds to no avail. Other older USB devices such as my WD external hard drive will work with my new laptop, but not the Dell printer. Help?
To attach the printer to a computer: 1. Ensure that the printer, computer, and any other attached devices are turned off and unplugged. 2. Connect the printer to the computer using a USB. A USB port requires a USB cable. Ensure that you match the USB symbol on the cable to the USB symbol on the printer. Plug the other end of the cable into a USB port on the back of the computer. Turn On the Printer 1. Connect the power cable to the printer and plug it into a power source. Do not use extension cords or power strips. The printer should not be plugged into a UPS system. 2. Turn on the computer and the printer.
