USB Printer Not Recognised Mystery

What might have caused this (NOTE Printer now works but i can't work this out!!!)

1) New Win98SE PC

2) New Epson C62 Printer

3) Installed drivers.

4) Switched printer on when promted. Printer not detected.

5) Checked connections. OK

6) Start again.

7) Repeat SEVERAL times using BOTH rear USB ports.

8) Give up and plug into front port - Printer detected & works first time

9) Plug into rear port - PRINTER WORKS.....

Why might that be????

do any of your ports in universal serial bus controllers report anything unusual.

(Power to items on the port? plus conformation whats attached.)

Nope thats the thing. Power to the ports was ok, no problems under Device Manager etc.
