Is it showing in Device Manager under USB devices?

It will have to be powered up to show.

I can only surmise that the printer has failed. I have a PSC 1215, they can be bought very cheap now. Try Asda, Comet, etc.

Remove the USB Printer Hub device in Device Manager then restart the Computer. You should get a message "New Hardware Found", the Hub will be re-installed. Then try installing the PSC.

Just a little reminder that the printer MUST NOT be connected when instaling the drivers. This is easy to overlook when installing hardware. Worth mentioning, I think.
