Default 1280 printer on Winxp

I had this printer on Win 98 for almost 2 years without hardly any problems. Now I can't seem to get it to work on my new computer with winXP. I downloaded the required driver and the othere thing to view the ink tank, but the computer could not seem to find the usb that the printer was using.

Anyone else have problems with this printer on WinXP?

Rob.

I have the 1270, which is nearly identical to the 1280, and have no problems with it on XP. However, I use the parallel connection, not USB. Can you hook it up that way? It might tell you where the problem lies.
