    No USB ports for printer

    Running 98SE. I'm trying to install a USB printer but have no USB ports shown in the printer setup. When I plug the USB cable into the printer it is recognized by brand and model but the installation I cannot assign a port. I have removed the USB devices and let Windows reinstall, USB is enabled in the BIOS, I have USBprint shown in device manager and upgraded the BIOS. What else could be wrong? I have used USB cameras on this system with no problems. Thanks for any help you can give.

    Thanks Leif. That looks like the problem. I am waiting for an updated install CD from the manufacturer now. Hoping this will take care of it.
