I downloaded a driver for my Epson C82 printer. I burned the zip file to a CD so that I could install the printer on another computer. How do I get the drivers installed. I burned the driver to a CD because I lost the installation CD.

Next question: I have two onboard USB ports on the computer that are not working. I suspect the ports because the same USB devices work on another computer. For instance: memory sticks, USB mouse.

Next question: The same computer in questions "reads" some floppies and not others.

Thanks for your help.

I am running Window XP Professional on the computers that I am using.

For the printer you need to copy the zip file from the cd to the hard drive on the system on which you wish to install the printer. Put it in its own folder. Then you need to unzip the file. When it's time to install the driver for the printer point windows to that location.

Did the USB ports ever work? Is this a brand system or did someone build it and not hook up the ports? Check in Device Manager for any problems with the USB controllers.

That's the nature of floppies and floppy drives. There are floppy drive cleaners. It might help it might not.

I got the driver installed and the printer is now running. Thanks.

Yes the USB did work. I checked the CMOS settings and it is enabled. Device Manager tells me it is working properly too. I wonder if the drivers need updating.

Thanks for your help.
