Question
Norman:
I have 2 identical Canon printers connected to W7 via USB ports,
which I plan to use for different purposes.
When I connect the second printer, it works fine, but W7 does not then recognize the first printer.
Is it possible to implement what I am planning.

Answer
it sounds like the printers are being recognized by windows 7 but using one print button driver buttons under printers and faxes... you might be trying to plug and play... and use the inbuilt windows drivers... you may need to install the print drivers directly or connect both printers via ethernet or by using a usb print server that connects to the printers and the computer.
