USB Printer - Printer description for each port

  kwaker 18:53 17 Jun 2003

When I installed new printer (Lexmark X75) I get description set up for Lexmark X74X75 (ok so far). If I then plug printer into second USB port the PC (running XP) detects new hardware and sets up second decription (Lexmark X74X75 copy). Ditto third USB port. Printer properties show each on different usb ports USB01 (02 & 03). The three printers show up on the printer selection when printing from WORD (confuses my mum). Any way around this apart from labelling the USB ports or always using the same port. Makes a nonesence of things if u have the full 127 USB ports!!
