This is more of a solution than a problem. I was running Windows 8 on my old windows 7 box, and the printer would work perfectly. I then upgraded my windows 7 box to a new MB, SSD, and more RAM and the printer would not work via the USB port. I tried the latest drivers and nothing seemed to work.
Then the light bulb came on...the old MB only had USB 2.0 ports and the new MB has USB 3.0 ports except for the two front USB ports. Moved the printer to the front USB port and it will now work as advertised.
