Install the driver in compatability mode (XP).

Then plug in your printer and goto the "add printer" (top left) select , it should then appear on your screen,
and hopefully It will be working.

If not Right click on the printer select troubleshooter.

i installed it manually without usb cable but still the main problem that the usb cable when connected printer sometime works and print well and sometime while printing suddenly error msg usb cable not plugged and stopped even the cable plugged already

In that case I'd say you need a new cable.

Can I use a Y-splitter printer cable? Do they work?
I was looking at this cable and I know it doesn't work because the red connector only carries power and no data. Is there a Y-splitter printer cable that will work? I don't want to buy a print router because my workload does not require one and if a y-splitter doesn't work will this hub work?
