hardware installation failure - WindowsXP

  bramkit 10:04 18 Apr 04

I have repeated failure to install hardware via USB. Failed installs include a Cannon printer, Minolta camera and a card reader. Some time ago, installation of Epsom printer and HP scanner worked ok. Installation wizard cannot find driver on supplied CD's or says it is not "digitally signed and may not work properly". In the case of the printer I appeared to get the driver installed (eventually) but printer would not work (it works OK on son's W98 machine). Camera and Card reader have been complete installation failures. WXP was supplied pre-installed on PC with recovery disc. Vendor not very helpful.

Ensure that you have all windows update from windowsupdate.com; also see if the peripheral manufacturer has updated drivers on its site.

You need to install the drivers first - normally the fact that the drivers may not be signed shouldn't be a problem in most cases.

You will also need to ensure that you have suitable drivers for XP if they are not already on the OS's drivers database.
