    Printer and Scanner together ?

    Got a computer with win xp pro on connected to this computer by a 4 port belkin usb 2 card is a epson printer and a epson scanner both are usb 2.

    The problem is scanner will not work when printer is connected to usb port but as soon as you remove the printer from the usb port scanner will then scan.

    Have you any ideas.

    Have you removed and reinstalled all of the software for the scanner and the printer?

    Install one device, reboot, install second device, reboot.

    If the scanner lacks it's own power supply, that's the problem. I would put the printer on a standard USB port. It doesn't really benefit from USB 2.0 anyway.
