Windows 7: I know what my "unknown device" is!

I know what my "unknown device" is!

But I can't figure out how to make it "known".

The device is a Casio CW-100 disc title printer.

I have the Vista drivers installed and the printer works.

But it shows up as a "unknown device" in Windows.

How can I make it "known"?

Open up the device manager and then unplug your printer. Does the unknown device go away?

I noted that I had an installed driver.

What didn't work? When you unplugged your printer, did the unknown device disappear, or did it stay there? If it stayed there, then it isn't your printer.
